Hydrophilic Tip Guidewires


Modern Grinding can help you craft a hydrophilic tip guidewire for your next project. We have contract manufactured guidewires for international medical device brands, medical distributors, and university research

Generally speaking, hydrophilic means capable of interacting with water through hydrogen bonding; hygroscopic. Studies have showed that hydrophilic tipped guidewires perform better than alternatives in a variety of guidewire applications. Modern Grinding manufactures all components of a hydrophilic guidewire to specifications for Medical Device OEMs and product designers.

Modern Grinding can start with custom designed stainless steel or nitinol cores and can grind a wire profile to suit your needs.

In addition to hydrophilic coatings, Modern Grinding has added pressure sensors, glass materials, microcoils, flat coils, and a variety of polymer coatings to guidewires. We would appreciate the opportunity to quote out your next project.
