Advances in Medical Devices
Becoming a MedTech Innovator
Cardiovascular Engineering
Clinical Trials
Drug Delivery Devices
Emerging Technology Forum
Global Regulation
Human Factors
Live Clinical Cases
Neuroengineering
Surgical Robotics
Three-in-Five Competition
Valuation Competition

Electroplating can be employed to enhance medical device functionality in a myriad of ways. For example, electroplated metals can be used to conduct heat & electricity, offer good wear and corrosion resistance, create antimicrobial and biocompatible surfaces, and enhance device features such as radiopaque markers and catheter braiding.​

 

 
ProPlate® will be showcasing three new catheter coating innovations, Torq-Lok®, Vizi-Band® and Meta-Poly™.
 
Vizi-Band® is a radiopaque marker coating innovation. It is a proprietary metal coating process that atomically bonds directly to a catheter, guide wire, stent, or similar component. The highly radiopaque and biocompatible metal coating can be selectively applied to any section of the desired component, with endless options for customization depending on the application and intended use. Vizi-Band® is a replacement for traditional marker bands with potential performance and cost advantages.

Torq-Lok® is a catheter braid innovation. It is a proprietary process that atomically bonds metal to each braid pic crossing fusing them together, as one. Torq-Lok® enhances traditional braided catheters performance by substantially increasing torque response, torque to failure and twist. Other benefits include controlling radial forces, minimizing end fraying, improving pushability, minimizing elongation, and kink resistance, without substantially impacting shaft flexibility or significantly increasing braid dimensional profile.

Meta-Poly™ is a proprietary plating process that atomically bonds metal directly to a polymer substrate without the use of toxic chromic acid. Although medical device uses for Meta-Poly™ are vast it is especially exciting for catheter applications. With utilization of this innovation manufacturers can precisely add radiopaque markers and current conducting paths onto polymers. The type of metal is tailored to the application, and Meta-Poly™ can be selectively applied to the desired component, with endless design options.
