Durable coating polymer ZEFFLE MZ for infectants and sterilants of medical devices
With the increasing demand for more infection control, the disinfectant and sterilization of medical devices is becoming more powerful, and the degradation of materials used in medical devices is becoming more serious.
To solve this problem, we offer durable coating materials ZEFFLE MZ that are resistant to various disinfectants and sterilants.
- Excellent chemical resistance (ex. VHP sterilization). As refer to Table.1
- It’s possible to coat on resin parts such as endoscope tube.
- ISO10993 (GLP) biocompatibility test have been passed.
- FDA device masterfile (MAF) has been registered.

Hydrogen peroxide gas plasma sterilization evaluation
Test was conducted with STERRADTM 100NX. The ZEFFLE MZ coating remained intact under hydrogen peroxide gas plasma exposure,while the acrylic urethane coating displayed cracking as shown image 1-2.

Since the disinfectant solution resistance performance of ZEFFLE MZ is very high, excellent chemical resistance characteristics can be imparted by coating materials that are not resistant to hydrogen peroxide gas sterilization and various disinfectants. In addition, since the ZEFFLE MZ does not need to be raised to a high temperature during curing, it is possible to coat general-purpose resins.
