May 17, 2022 (Indianapolis, IN) – Specialty Coating Systems (SCS) is pleased to announce that it will hold its next webinar on Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at 2 p.m. EDT. The webinar entitled, “Specialized Coatings for Advanced Medical Devices” will be presented by Rakesh Kumar, Ph.D., Vice President of Technology, and Dick Molin, Medical Market Manager. The webinar is now open for registration at: scswebinars.com.

Today’s medical devices perform increasingly critical roles in healthcare, with many offering improved performance and function due to the use of conformal coatings. Functional properties most frequently sought with coatings are barrier protection, electrical insulation and surface modification.

This webinar will provide deeper insight into these functional needs by offering examples of critical devices and components that benefit from high-performance coatings and will review how engineers and designers fill those needs by examining a number of specialized coatings, their processes and properties. The presentation also will provide key information and guidance regarding cleanliness and adhesion considerations.
