Embodiments include polymeric coatings formed from poly((perfluoro)organo)phosphazene-based materials. The coatings may be utilized to coat any suitable substrates, and in some embodiments may be utilized to coat surfaces of medical implants. The poly((perfluoro)organo)phosphazene-based materials may contain some fluorine-containing groups, and some crosslinkable moieties. The poly((perfluoro)organo)phosphazene-based materials may also contain some groups suitable for covalent bonding with surfaces of particular substrates. For instance, the poly((perfluoro)organo)phosphazene-based materials may include amine-containing groups for covalently bonding to urethane surfaces.
