Our mission is to provide safe, effective and affordable coatings for your medical devices, without resource depleting CDA/NDA’s, licensing fees or royalties.
Our vision is a medical device community where everyone requiring a coating, despite their expertise or resources, has a coating that will meet their performance needs.
Coatings2Go® provides coating solutions to our clients directly, in an efficient and cost-effective manner through:
- A combination of patented and non-patented product offerings,
- Packaging options, and
- Secure and fast online ordering and shipping.
This means our customers find effective solutions to their device requirements and coating needs, with ease. Products are then directly shipped to them, in less time and at a lower cost than it would normally take to even get started with all the CDA/NDA, licensing and royalty hassles, and expenses of existing industry standards.
Coatings2Go® LLC is an affiliate of Surface Solutions Labs,® Inc. Coatings2Go® has a proven track record of providing high-quality, innovative coating technologies and solutions to the medical device industry.
