Anti-Encrustation Medical Coating - pHreeCOAT
pHreeCOAT™ Anti-Encrustation Coating
pHreeCOAT™ coatings are:
Substrates coated with pHreeCOAT™ resist encrustation even after four weeks in urine.
pHreeCOAT™’s patent pending composition modulates surface pH and thus prevents the deposition of seed crystals. The buffering action of pHreeCOAT™ is designed to work in all physiological environments.
pHreeCOAT™ is biocompatible as evidenced by successfully passing cytotoxicity, systemic injection, and direct hemolysis tests.
pHreeCOAT™, as part of the LubriLAST™ family of coatings, contains no organic solvents. Safer and cleaner manufacturing processes are used and any concerns about residual solvents in a device are eliminated.
pHreeCOAT™ can be applied to virtually any biomaterial or device with no flaking or delamination.
How does pHreeCOAT™ work?
pHreeCOAT™ is a new patent pending anti-encrustation coating in the LubriLAST™ family. It prevents mineral deposition on indwelling medical devices. pHreeCOAT™ can be used in any application where calcification of a device compromises performance, patient comfort or safety. By modulating surface pH and chemistry, pHreeCOAT™ renders the device virtually invisible to the calcification process.
