Diabetic test strips.

Madico’s HyTek material is designed for applications that require water repellency and self-cleaning properties. It features superhydrophobicity (the ability to repel water) (contact angle > 150°) and self-cleaning properties often required in healthcare applications. It retains its superhydrophobic properties and exhibits the Lotus effect, initially and after aging. Common applications include medical diagnostic test strips.


  • Low water mobility angle to prevent Rose Petal effect
  • Print-compatible base material and coating
  • All components of construction are EU Directive RoHS compliant
