Utilizing state-of-the-art machinery and precisely designed manufacturing processes, we are able to control temperature, humidity and viscosity, and achieve high manufacturing yield, while overcoming the potentially problematic aspects of this techniques, such as ununiformed coating, bubbles, coating adhesion and high defect rate.
Advantages over other techniques:
- Fast prototype development
- Cost effectiveness
- Coatings with wall thickness of between 20-100 microns
- Coating Tolerance: ± 10 microns
Electrospinning is a fiber production method which uses electric force to draw charged threads of polymer solutions to fiber diameters.
The electrospinning manufacturing process comprises of surface treatment sequence that enables strong adhesion forces between the substrate and the coating layer.
The end result is a fully encapsulated cover without any exposed metal surfaces.
- Fiber diameter range: 2 – 300 [nm]
- Porosity definition: 2-40 [nm]
Differentiations in pore size can impact :
- Tissue regrowth
- Cell adhesion
The main clinical application for this technology are in structural heart and peripheral angioplasty.
