A Trusted Medical Coating Partner

Merit Medical’s spool-to-spool precoating process for medical wires was developed in 1990 and has been tested and refined for more than two decades. The trusted coating technology was acquired by Merit Medical from the Netherlands-based company MCTec in 2006 and became known as the Merit Medical Coatings division.

As of January 2014 the advanced technologies and processes formerly offered through the Merit Medical Coatings division, including the world-renowned spool-to-spool coating technology and coming on-line soon as an added benefit will be a new Discrete Coating line will be offered through the global Merit Medical OEM division.

This combined offering means expanded capabilities, a larger and growing global sales and support network and a greater ability to customize products for our OEM customers.
