Development of adhesion test for coated medical device

Sélley Torda László, Terdik Andrew Attila, Bognár Eszter


High biocompatibility is a basic requirement in medical technology. Polymer coatings can radically improve medical device biocompatibility, especially for surfaces like stainless steel. Adhesion is an important quality in a coating, and this was our rationale for developing a polymer adhesion testing protocol. We compared two biocompatible polymers, polyurethane (PUR) and poly-(DL-lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PDLG). Polymer layers were created on surface-treated stainless steel. The properties of different layers were compared. Adhesion of the coatings was characterised by concentration of coating solution, rate of the contacted surface and surface roughness of the carriers. PUR showed better adhesion under our test conditions.
