Applied Plastics Co., has introduced a line of bendable, PFOA free Teflon coated nitinol forming mandrels for fuse welding and tipping operations that withstand very high temperatures.
Applied Plastics Nitinol PTFE Natural Forming Mandrels are kink-resistant, making them ideal for fuse welding and tipping operations for long, small diameter medical tubing. Featuring a smooth surface with a 0.5 dynamic coefficient of friction to prevent sticking, these highly bendable forming mandrels are chemically inert and can operate up to 500° F (260° C).
Available in 0.0003″ to 0.035″ dia., with ±0.0001″ to ±0.0005″ tolerances, depending upon size, Applied Plastics Nitinol PTFE Natural Forming Mandrels can be supplied in custom lengths. A proprietary surface preparation process before applying the PTFE Natural coating assures it will not flake, crack, or peel and PTFE Natural grey has zero PFOA.
