ABOUT ZEUS

Zeus Has Delivered Dependable Innovation for Almost 50 Years

At Zeus, we’re innovators. Just like you. 

We were among the first to work in the arena of minimally invasive techniques for revolutionary procedures such as neuromodulation. Our PEEK drawn fiber offers a non-metallic replacement for stainless steel. And when a major aircraft manufacturer needed an immediate design change on a harness assembly, Zeus delivered in record time.

Zeus has vast experience in medicine, aerospace, energy exploration, automotive, fiber optics and more allowing you to leap past “can’t” and into “how”.

What makes us different is that we think different. Even though we’re the world’s leading expert in polymer tubing, we’re much more than a polymer tubing company. Zeus solves problems and anticipates innovation. We’re in the business of changing lives.

Our History

Frank P. Tourville, Sr. worked in the polymer extrusion industry for ten years before creating Zeus from a desire to “do it better.” While Zeus quickly established itself as a world leader providing high-performance polymer extrusions and solutions, our rapid, sustained growth is rooted in a commitment to improving industries and lives.

Zeus is Everywhere You Are

Zeus touches just about every major industry in the world. Our products make everyday life better, faster, safer. You’ll find Zeus technology in your backyard grill and automobile. You’ll find us in the aircraft taking you where you need to go and the hand of the surgeon saving your life. Our research facilities are surpassed only by the enthusiasm and commitment of our people.

Why Choose Zeus As An Innovation Partner?

When your product and reputation are on the line, you want the best. No other company in the world delivers the consistency, dependability and unrivaled innovation of Zeus.

HOT PRODUCTS

  • Electrospun Polymer Solutions For Controlled Biological Interaction: Bioweb™ Technology
    Electrospun Polymer Solutions For Controlled Biological Interaction: Bioweb™ Technology

    Zeus offers Bioweb™ electrospinning technology that produces polymer fiber solutions with thickness ranging from nanoscale to microscale sizes. These fibers can be used to electrospin fabrics with complex shapes, and produce a broad range of fiber and fabric properties. Possible solutions include encapsulation technology, spin membranes/sheets, and 3-D structures for coating substrates of varying shapes and sizes.

  • Expanded PTFE Profiles For Medical And Industrial Applications: Aeos® ePTFE
    Expanded PTFE Profiles For Medical And Industrial Applications: Aeos® ePTFE

    Aeos® ePTFE tubing from Zeus is composed of solid nodes that are interconnected by a matrix of extremely thin fibrils. It is manufactured by expanding PTFE tubing during the manufacturing process, which alters the properties of the tubing by creating microscopic pores in the structure of the material. This tubing is the most flexible tubing Zeus offers, making it ideal for medical devices, electronic insulators, high performance filters, and other medical and industrial applications.

  • Absorv® Bioabsorbable Polymers
    Absorv® Bioabsorbable Polymers

    Bioabsorbables are capable of safely existing in the body for controlled lengths of time before absorbing without causing any harm or adverse reactions. The Absorv® biomaterial platform is optimized for the development of a wide variety of medical products for preventative care and disease treatments. The ever expanding list of applications includes orthopedic, dental, surgical, stents, and tissue engineering.

  • Why Emerging Markets Deserve More From Medical Device OEMs 

    Increased GDP and greater income per capita in developing countries means patients are becoming more proactive about their health. As a result, they can afford higher quality treatment plans and devices.

  • Tie Layer: A Breakthrough Solution To Catheter Failure
    Tie Layer: A Breakthrough Solution To Catheter Failure

    Product engineers at catheter manufacturing companies will be only too aware of the problem of delamination – the separation of material layers within the catheter.  The solution lay in the design of an additional material layer between the inner etched PTFE liner and the outer jacket material of the catheter. This extra layer would deliver the crucial adhesion required to prevent delamination, ideally without increasing the outer diameter of the finished catheter.

  • Focus On Polyimides For Medical Applications
    Focus On Polyimides For Medical Applications

    Polyimides (PIs) occupy a particular place in commercial plastics because of their ability to tolerate and function in extremely high temperatures. They are also well known for other beneficial properties including insulating capability, chemical resistance, and excellent mechanical attributes. With their combination of properties and their ability to be tailored toward application specifics, polyimides offer some of best options for performance in high heat and other difficult environments. This white paper provides a brief overview of polymide properties, their structure, and how they are synthesized for use in extreme environment applications.
