Freudenberg Medical today said it is expanding its tri-layer and multi-layer capabilities within its VistaMed business unit.
VistaMed’s tri-layer tubing is made on precision multi-layer extrusion lines in a Class 8 cleanroom. The tubing is designed with a low coefficient of friction and the inner lumen material and material layer allow for easy passage of guidewires through tortuous anatomical pathways.
The inner layer of HDPE material has bond integrity to the outer nylon layer and a tie layer material is used with refined processing techniques. The outer layer material is used for bonding balloons or other tubing.
“Many years of experience in tubing and catheter manufacturing combined with our continuous investment in the latest process technologies ensures that our capabilities remain best in class to meet the challenging needs of the healthcare industry,” VistaMed managing director Patrick Mulholland said.
VistaMed currently makes extruded tubing with OD ranges from 0.2mm to 20mm with tolerances as low as +/-0.0065mm, according to the company.
