About AST Products, Inc.
AST Products, Inc. was founded in 1989 to develop novel surface technologies and coatings. Initially a research based organization, AST now develops and manufactures ophthalmic medical devices as well as a line of patented and proprietary coatings for the medical device and specialty materials industries. AST also provides specially engineered plasma reactors and analysis equipment that facilitate the application of its advanced coatings.
Headquartered in Billerica, MA, USA, AST operates a 23,000 square foot facility fully equipped with Class 10,000 and Class 100,000 cleanrooms, and advanced analytical and research labs. As an ISO 13485:2003 registered business, AST can offer contract surface treatment services to companies that require the highest degree of quality from their suppliers.
AST understands that its customers expect a committed partner. Accordingly, AST collaborates with its customers from beginning to end. Our customers enjoy complete access to AST’s considerable technical expertise throughout the design and development process. By working with customers every step of the way, small design changes can be made early on in the process. This prevents huge delays and overruns late in the game. Our partnership support does not end with the finalization of coating formulation or product design. We work with the customers to ensure smooth and trouble-free implementation at their or at AST’s facilities. Additionally, AST’s experienced staff continues to provide assistance throughout any approval or installation process.
