E-Z Clean PTFE = Faster Surgery

Save time and minimize cleaning disruptions during electrosurgery by using Megadyne's E-Z Clean non-stick tips.

If It Isn’t Green, It Isn’t Megadyne E-Z Clean®

  • Megadyne’s trademarked green PTFE coating is designed to save surgeons time. When cleaning is needed, only a wipe with a damp sponge is required.
  • Unlike competitive tips that often utilize polyurethane and other fillers, E-Z Clean tips utilize a pure PTFE coating that resists flaking at high temperatures.
  • With more than two-dozen tip configurations and sizes, Megadyne offers blade, needle, and ball electrodes to meet the needs of numerous electrosurgery procedures.
  • Modified tips are insulated everywhere but the distal 3-5 mm of the electrode shaft with PTFE insulation that resists splitting up to 700° F, minimizing the likelihood of damage to surrounding tissue.

Megadyne E-Z Clean electrodes are proudly made by hand in the United States of America.

EZ-Clean Non stick PTFE Electrode

E-Z Clean®
E-Z Clean® non-stick electrodes feature a proprietary polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) coating that reduces eschar build-up during surgical procedures, enabling surgeons to use lower power settings.

Stainless steel
Stainless steel electrodes require scraping and cleaning costing surgeons valuable time in the OR. Stainless steel electrodes also require higher power settings which cause thermal necrosis.

A variety of tips and styles to fit the surgeon's needs.

MODIFIED E-Z CLEAN TIPS

Modified tips are insulated everywhere but the distal 3-5 mm of the electrode shaft with  PTFE insulation that resists splitting in temperatures beyond 700° F, minimizing the likelihood of damage to surrounding tissue.

E-Z Clean PTFE vs. Silicone 

  • During higher-power procedures silicone has a tendency to degrade.
  • Little or no coating on the edge of a silicone blade causes current to be directed to the edges—thus producing uneven coagulation and varying depths of thermal necrosis. 
  • E-Z Clean PTFE tips are evenly coated with high-grade PTFE to ensure consistent coagulation.

E-Z Clean PTFE vs. Economy PTFE

E-Z Clean electrodes are coated with pure PTFE, while economy PTFE tips may use filler ingredients like polyurethane (an inexpensive PTFE substitute) to reduce manufacturing cost. In functional testing, economy tips did not perform to the level of Megadyne E-Z Clean electrodes.

  • Polyurethane breaks down at temperatures commonly seen in electrosurgery.  
  • The dangers of polyurethane flaking in the human body are unknown. PTFE has an established patient safety record proven over 25 years.
  • When economy PTFE tips flake, they allow eschar buildup, which can
    slow surgeons down and cost time and money in the OR.
