About Medi-Solve Coatings – The Leading Hydrophilic
Medi-Solve Coatings was started in 2005 because we wanted to give medical device makers the opportunity to get current medical coatings and specifically hydrophilic coating technologies in a fast, responsive manner. Since then we’ve expanded our technical capabilities to other markets like cosmetic gels, lubrication solutions and industrial applications. In 2012, Medi-Solve Coatings was acquired by Precision Coatings, the leader in PTFE coating. This exciting merger has enabled us to offer customers a larger spectrum of coating technologies and services. Medi-Solve Coatings is located in Natick, Ma.
