Advanced Coextruded Multilayer Tubing Allows Smaller, Thinner, Functional Catheter-Based Medical Devices
Medical device manufacturers developing devices for vascular and other applications are demanding polymeric tubing that boasts greater precision, tighter tolerances, and increased functionality. As tubing designs become more complex, so does the extrusion technology to produce them. Multilayer extrusion technology has been at the forefront of these advances.
Most medical tubing specifications comprise a drawing of a tube with the material, dimensions, and tolerances. Rarely do the specs include other tubing attributes or process parameters associated with the production of the tubing.
This application note provides medical device engineers ideas for applications that are ideally suited for ultra-thin-walled PET heat shrink tubing. Applications explored in this paper include variable-stiffness catheters, protective covering/coating and bundling, reinforcement, tube making and printing, and electrical insulation.
Polyimide is a versatile polymer with a wide range of desirable properties that can be used to great effect in many different microdiameter tubing applications. Thanks to the novel film-cast tubing process, medical device engineers can take full advantage of this stable, durable polymer in ways that might not be obvious at first glance.
This case study explores three medical device design challenges and how Nordson MEDICAL devised optimal solutions with the innovative use of the film-cast process with polyimide and other polymers.
