Wait, is that Clean?

Surface preparation is a critical manufacturing process that enables sealing, bonding, painting, coating, printing and cleaning. By utilizing appropriate surface preparation processes medical device manufacturers can speed production, ensure product safety, and decrease the likelihood of recalls.

Despite the critical nature of this process the majority of manufacturers are still relying upon outdated surface evaluation methods such as dyne and water break. These current methods lack precision, allow for subjective interpretation, and are often destructive.

Check out the BTG Labs infographic below to explore the strengths and weaknesses of different surface preparation methods.
