ME-92® Medical Coatings are a cosmetically and clinically pristine surface enhancement that can be applied to most instruments and devices manufactured today. High surface hardness and enhanced wear protection ensure extended device life in the toughest environments. The anti-microbial and hydrophobic nature of the coating surface safeguards against bioburden while able to withstand many hundreds of autoclave sterilization cycles without staining or discoloration. Absolute adhesion to the substrate is guaranteed and thin deposits ensure tolerances, balance, and instrument weight remain true to design. 

Biocompatible Chromium Coating for Ferrous and Non-Ferrous Metal Surfaces

The ME-92® Coating offers the Industry’s Most Versatile Lineup of Biocompatible Chromium Coating Options for ferrous and non-ferrous metals in three finish options:

THREE FINISH OPTIONS:

  • ME-92 Satin
  • ME-92 Non Reflective
  • ME-92 Platinum

ME-92® SATIN

(shown on left applied to a base of stainless steel) Applied to tens of millions of devices, ME-92® Satin is our standard-bearer finish. As with all our finishes, it is bonded directly to the base material, is highly ductile and will not separate from the base material when twisted, flexed or impacted. Designed to enhance the overall performance of surgical devices; galling and fretting elimination, improved wear resistance, increased surface hardness, arrests corrosion from sterilization and laser marking, non-stick easy to clean surface, biocompatible and looks new after hundreds of uses. Unlike other coatings, removal and reapplication of our ME-92® Satin coating will not affect the base material or surface finish.

ME-92® NON REFLECTIVE

(shown on left applied to a base of stainless steel) Designed specifically for use in Laparoscopic and Endoscopic surgery procedures, ME-92® Non-Reflective coating reduces high-intensity light reflection and glare while providing the same reliable, biocompatible features of our full product line. Laser marking and repeated sterilization protocols will not degrade the color. Unlike other coatings, removal and reapplication of our ME-92® NR coating will not affect the base material or surface finish.

ME-92® PLATINUM

(shown on left applied to a base of stainless steel) A highly polished surface deserves a high quality coating. From maintaining cutting edges on polished drills and reamers to sealing and protecting a polished instrument with a tough, durable finish our ME-92® Platinum finish takes polished stainless steel to the next level. Our Platinum finish provides a long-lasting, clean, new appearance for premier devices and instruments. Unlike other coatings, removal and reapplication of our ME-92® Platinum coating will not affect the base material or surface finish.
