Under the agreement, Jotec has gained license to use Hydromer’s proprietary hydrophilic coatings on its various Endovascular placement devices including E-asy plus Introducer Sheath.

Hydromer said the coating system becomes slippery when made wet and will ease the introduction of Jotec’s endovascular catheter and stent graft systems into the vascular system.

Hydromer executive vice president Martin von Dyck said the company is delighted with having its Hydromer coating technology applied to Jotec’s endovascular devices.

"This particular Hydromer coating system is used worldwide on other Pebax and Nylon neurovascular, cardiovascular and cardiac stent delivery catheters," Dyck added.
