CovaCoat™

Our customized medical coatings deliver superior infection control, therapeutic delivery, and increased lubricity. Using our CovaCoat™ technology platform, we collaborate with customers to develop custom and proprietary medical device coatings that offer strategic marketing advantages for their product offerings. CovaCoat™ technology provides a cost-effective and proprietary photochemical process for covalently linking coating molecules to a variety of medical device surfaces for exceptional functionality and performance. Specific coating formulations signal passive or active healing responses to the device.

CovaCoat™ may be customized to provide medical devices specific properties:

  • Lubricious
  • Hemocompatible
  • Antithrombogenic
  • Biocompatible
  • Antimicrobial
  • Controlled drug delivery
  • ID/OD coating

Virtually any medical device or other surface material can be coated with our CovaCoat technology. Each formulation can be engineered to provide controlled delivery of various therapeutics. 

The CovaCoat™ process features sophisticated controls built into the coating process that provides for batch size flexibility or continuous flow production to ensure consistent outcomes. All process applications developed with ISO compliant quality systems are scaled‐up at Covalon prior to technology transfer. Medical companies can choose to apply the coatings in‐house or through a contract manufacturer.
