Europlasma has been innovating for years and we are looking forward to do this together with you!
With more than 25 years of experience in low Pressure plasma engineering and applications, Europlasma is a world leader in Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition (PECVD) treatments and coatings.
Europlasma employs some of the world’s foremost experts on PECVD and has been known for its commitment to innovation and continuous improvement.
Europlasma has extensive experience in fine cleaning (down to the molecular level) of medical devices and hydrophobic or hydrophilic biocompatible coatings.
Activation and ultra-fine cleaning of catheters guide wires and all type of medical plastics
The Europlasma PECVD process can be used for the fine cleaning of medical plastics and metals used in stents, implants and contact lenses.
The application guarantees a clean and cost-effective overall process. Because of the high energy level of the plasma, it can selectively break open the structure of chemical or organic substances on the surface of the material. Using ultrafine cleaning, undesirable substances can be completely removed from even sensitive surfaces. This results in the optimal prerequisite for medical use or later coating.
Micro-fine plasma cleaning removes even the smallest dust particles from plastics, which at first adhere firmly to the surface because of the additives. The plasma causes the particles to detach completely from the substrate. By using the chemical-physical reaction in the nano range, high-quality, surfaces are achieved.
Europlasma medical coatings
Europlasma specialises in two types of coatings for the medical industry: hydrophilic coatings and hydrophobic.
Europlasma hydrophilic coatings:
Europlasma’s hydrophilic coatings are used to reduce friction because of their excellent lubricity, mow friction or stiction on catheters, guide wires, stents, etc But they also can act as an outstanding biocompatibility coating. Our hydrophilic coating is used on textile to wrap organs for transplants to implants against rejection.
Europlasma’s hydrophobic coatings are unmatched for their water-repelling, antifouling, anticorrosion effects. We have barrier coatings that outperform parylene and they are now fully halogen (so also fluorine) free!
