Substrates We Coat

Acrylic or Poly (methyl methacrylate)

Acrylic or Poly (methyl methacrylate) is a transparent thermoplastic often used as a more durable alternative to glass or as an inexpensive alternative to polycarbonate.

Common applications:
Plexiglass windows, eyeglasses, sunglasses, intraocular lens implants, protective eyewear, molded parts, tactical gear, medical devices and more…


A soft, lightweight metal often favored for its ductility and resistance to corrosion. Aluminum is non-ferrous, highlight conductive, non-absorbent, and relatively inexpensive.

Common applications:
Structural and electrical components, packaging and containers, medical devices and more…


Glass, or silicon dioxide is clear, durable, and easy to produce. Notable for its excellent optical qualities and scratch resistance.

Common applications:
Windows, lenses, containers, freezer and food display, LEDs, medical instruments and more…

Nickel Titanium

Nickel Titanium, or nitonol, is an alloy known for its exceptional shape memory and superelasticity, allowing it to be easily deformed and recover its shape. It is highly biocompatible with a wide range of medical and industrial uses.

Common applications:
Orthopedic implants, stents, orthodontics, actuators, springs, medical devices and more…


Nylon is a versatile thermoplastic polymer ideal as a fiber in fabrics, twines, and ropes. It is elastic, non-absorbent, and easy to clean.

Common applications:
Implants, catheters, packaging, sterilized films and bags, medical devices and more…


PEBAX, or polyether block amide, is a flexible thermoplastic. It has excellent mechanical properties, able to deform and reform while resisting wear and impact damage.

Common applications:
Catheters, tubes, packaging, medical devices and more…

PET (Polyethylene terephthalate)

PET, PETE is a common thermoplastic polymer resin of polyester.

Common applications:
Blow molded bottles, food packaging, and more…


Polycarbonate (PC) is a lightweight and durable thermoplastic. It is an excellent electrical insulator, making it ideal for electronics, and has comparable clarity and optical qualities to some kinds of glass.

Common applications:
Electronic component housing, protective eyewear, swim goggles, displays, lenses, greenhouse panels, skylights, LEDs, tactical gear, drug delivery system, medical devices and more…


Polyurethane is a durable and resilient polymer. It can be used for soft foams or rigid, injection-molded parts.

Common applications:
Structural components, catheters, tubes, implants, packaging, electronics, medical devices and more…


Polyvinyl chloride, commonly referred to as PVC or colloquially as vinyl, is one of the most widely used  plastic polymers. It is available in both rigid and soft forms, and is used in a wide range of industrial and medical applications.

Common applications:
Medical tubing, pipes, electrical components, medical devices, packaging, seals, surgical wire and more…


Silicone is a soft, synthetic polymer typically produced as gels or soft solids. Silicone is highly biocompatible, water resistant, and breathable, making it ideal for many medical, industrial, and household uses.

Common applications:
Tubing, intraocular lenses, packaging, implants, catheters, balloon catheters, medical devices and more…


Steel is an iron carbon alloy favored for its tensile strength, as well as its relatively low cost. It is used for a wide variety of structural applications, and corrosion-resistant stainless steel is the most common material for cutlery and instruments.

Common applications:
Medical tools, guidewires, needles, electronic components, architectural components, instrument panels, implants, sensor probes, panel displays, catheters and more…


Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a thermoplastic polymer commonly marketed under the brand name Teflon. PTFE is especially notable for its low-friction, “non-stick” surface.

Common applications:
Implants, electronic components, catheters, tubes and more…


Titanium is a lustrous transition metal with low density and high strength. Titanium is extremely resistant to corrosion and has a high strength to density ratio.

Common applications:
Prosthetics, surgical instruments, implants, landing gear, hydraulic systems, medical devices and more…


Co-polymers are polymers made by reaction of two different monomers, with units of more than one kind.

Common applications:
Sunscreen, resins, packaging, styrofoam, medical devices and more…

Multi-Material Components

Multi-material components are hybrid parts of dissimilar materials.

Common applications:
Surgical tools, catheters, implants, electronic components, instrument displays, medical devices, LEDs and more…
