DSM’s ComfortCoat® hydrophilic coatings are applied using an industry-leading process with ready-to-use coating reagents, offering the longest shelf life, excellent durability, high lubricity and low particulate release, delivering superior value in a broad range of medical devices.

Hydrophilic coating eases catheter introduction and removal to improve patient outcomes

DSM, a global leader in biomedical materials science, today announced a successful collaboration with vascular catheter developer and manufacturer PendraCare resulting in the launch of the PRIMUM guiding catheters.

PendraCare uses ComfortCoat® hydrophilic coating, a proprietary DSM technology, in its line of PRIMUM guiding catheters. The hydrophilic coating aids in smooth catheter introduction and positioning by lowering friction in tortuous and calcified anatomy and reducing the risk of vessel wall trauma, while significantly extending PRIMUM guiding catheter’s effectiveness over prolonged procedure times.

PendraCare’s PRIMUM guiding catheter takes advantage of the ultra low friction hydrophilic coating to ensure more accurate tip positioning. The no slip-stick effect results in more accurate positioning in ostial lesions and reduced catheter friction results in real 1:1 torque control of the tip. The properties and unmatched characteristics that DSM’s proprietary ComfortCoat coating provide include excellent lubricity, superior durability and adhesion as well as proven biocompatibility thereby making it an excellent material choice for catheters and guidewires in vascular, neurological, urinary and other applications.

Over 75 million catheters
