Urinary: Better catheter performance
Simplifying insertion and removal of urinary catheters
DSM coating technology helps make catheters slick and easier to insert. Plus our materials knowledge and processes make catheter coating more uniform – which means reduced bare spots or clumps of coating to impede progress.
Finally, DSM works with device manufacturers to simplify production. Our materials are easy to process into devices, with little need for multiple coating processes or treatments. They are UV cured to reduce manufacturing time and increase throughput. And they replace the need for gels and lubricants often needed to facilitate insertion. This saves hospitals the burden of added time and cost.
