A method for the production of antimicrobial catheters includes the steps of comminuting an antimicrobial metal compound to a particle size of up to about 30 microns in diameter. The comminuted antimicrobial metal compound is suspended in a suspending agent which can be cured to form a catheter or which can be formed to provide a coating on a previously formed catheter. The suspending agent is coated to either form the catheter or to form a coating on a catheter. Upon curing of the suspending agent, an outer surface is formed on the catheter, which outer surface includes the antimicrobial metal compound, thereby imparting antimicrobial activity to the catheter.
