At Applied Plastics, our proprietary technology lets us coat fine wire with a thin, smooth coating of PTFE Natural® Fluoropolymer to achieve optimum release or slip properties. Our specialty application for this technology is coating stainless steel or nitinol forming mandrels featuring a uniform, precise, non-flaking finish. These mandrels provide a smooth, slippery surface that is chemically inert and withstands up to 288°C operating temperatures. We also apply this superior technology to hypo-tubing.
Applied Plastics coats fine wire with PTFE Natural Fluoropolymer to create forming mandrels that increase the output of plastic welding and tipping systems for producing catheters.
