The Duraglide™ family of dry film lubricants from MicroCare Medical (New Britain, CT) is custom-blended for single-use medical devices and mechanical assemblies destined for the operating room that function outside of the body, such as catheters, cutting tools, staplers, hypotubes, and other “surface to surface” complex assemblies. Featuring “microdispersion” PTFE technology, Duraglide deposits a thin, smooth, fast-drying lubricant film over a surface, which reduces the force required to actuate, or execute, the device by 25 to 30 percent. The lubricants also offer nonflammable handling, storage, and use, materials compatibility, and environmental properties meeting EPA regulations.
