Hydromer is actively engaged in the fight against COVID-19 by scaling up manufacturing of our various hand sanitizers during the current extreme demand and short supply of those critical products. Hydromer offers a variety of sanitizer solutions, including a US FDA mandated “alcohol-based” sanitizer version, which is widely needed across the entire spectrum of healthcare, safety, first response and many other critical functions. We are actively seeking partnerships, suppliers and sources of alcohol to ensure a steady supply of hand sanitizers, to the healthcare market. We have also secured a special permit from the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms).
Hydromer’s coatings for medical devices possess highly sought-after performance attributes such as:
Our medical device coatings are formulated using polymers that reduce protein adsorption and platelet activation. Our broad portfolio of products can be applied through heat cure processes that enable coating of micro and multiple lumens, on inner and outer diameters.
In my interactions with Hydromer I have found a professional R&D partner, providing excellent service and fast response.
We needed to get our devices coated in a short time frame and they were accommodating to our needs. We appreciated how helpful they were. The coating was very high quality. It came out perfectly.
They are a great company with superior products. You can’t beat the price either. Top quality and top notch products!
The coating we required needed to have a degree of anti static properties and the great people over at Hydromer were able to guide us the right solution to our problem. The end result was a great product, with exceptional presentation.
To date, we have not had any issues with the coating and our firm plan is to continue using Hydromer whenever we need to process our devices. Solid vendor, definitely recommend.
Our office has been going through Hydromer for a while now. Fantastic customer service! Very high quality work!
The entire team at Hydromer including the president himself, sales, engineering, manufacturing and quality assurance were outstanding in responding and delivering finished coated parts on-time.
It was clear that you recognized the importance of our device in saving lives. As such, you rapidly deployed Hydromer’s top scientists, focused and prioritized our project and allocated all necessary resources to solve the problem expediently.
The coating that Hydromer provides is noticeably better than any of the vendors we were looking at. Customer service has been excellent throughout this entire process. They were happy to accommodate us with any late minute requests and information.
