Covalon to Showcase Centaur™ Low Particulate, Lubricious Coating at MD&M West

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 5, 2018-- Covalon Technologies Ltd. (the "Company" or "Covalon") (TSXV: COV), an advanced medical technologies company, today announced that it will be featuring its commercially available platform technologies, including the recently launched Centaur™ coating as first-time exhibitors at North America’s largest annual MedTech event. MD&M West will take place at the Anaheim Convention Center, from February 6-8, 2018.

In a third party in vitro simulated vascular insertion study designed to measure the levels of particulate, Covalon’s Centaur™ coating resulted in statistically significantly lower levels for all particulate sizes relative to the same uncoated catheter. This contrasts with other industry leading coatings that can generate nearly twice as many particles as the same uncoated catheter. Covalon’s Centaur™ coating technology specifically targets and is ideally suited for a growing segment of the medical coatings market focused on improving lubricity while maintaining coating durability.

In addition to Centaur, Covalon will be featuring CovaClear™ its proprietary dual antimicrobial silicone adhesive platform, which can effectively kill 99.99% of the bacteria that it comes in contact with, reducing the risk of infection as well as diminishing the likelihood of developing a medical adhesive related skin injury or MARSI, a clinically relevant and potentially avoidable event. Both platforms are available for licencing and are applicable across a variety of fields-of-use.

MD&M West connects thousands of advanced design and manufacturing professionals from the world's largest collection of medical technology suppliers with executives who are ready to forge business partnerships.
