A method for providing a medical apparatus with a protective, lubricious coating is described. The method comprises providing a coating solution which contains a protective compound such as a urethane, a slip additive such as a siloxane, and optionally, a crosslinking agent for the protective compound such as a polyfunctional aziridine, coating the solution onto a surface of a medical apparatus and allowing the coating to set. The resulting surface coating is lubricious, tough and flexible. The coating is well suited for use with materials used as components of balloon catheters.
