Precision Coating, a subsidiary of Katahdin Industries, has established a new medical device coatings facility at 63 Sprague Street in Boston.
The facility is a 7,500 square-foot manufacturing plant which is built with an investment of $1m to provide added capacity for medical device companies.
Precision Coating serves global health care and medical device companies for coating medical devices such as guide wires, core wires, hypotubes and forming mandrels.
In addition to its proprietary low friction polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), the company also offers other PTFE systems including zero-perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and chromic acid free coatings.
Precision Coating president Robert DeAngelis said this facility, which is designed for medical device coatings only, offers a controlled environment that manages air quality and particle count.
Katahdin Industries provides coating applications and specialized metal finishing technology and services to the medical device and industrial markets through platform-focused subsidiaries Precision Coating, Precision Fabric and Sanford Process.
