Types of Medical Extrusion:
Many types of Medical Extrusions are available from Polyflon, most being of custom design. All types are offered on spools; in coils or cut-to-length. Dependent on the style and material of extrusion, our tubing is produced in a class8 cleanroom and double bagged to maintain cleanliness. Should you require any information about our medical tubing, please contact us.
Profile Design & Material composition:
Typical profile designs include single-lumen, multi-lumen, co-extrusion and tapered or ‘bump tubing’. Single-lumen profiles can be offered as heat shrink tubing with or without ‘zebra’ spiral striping.
Various fillers can be compounded to improve tubing performance such as Barium Sulphate (BaSO4) and Tungsten (W), both of which increase component visibility under fluoroscopy.
