Engineers depend on Applied Plastics’ lubricious and robust coated mandrels while designing, developing and manufacturing advanced imaging, access, delivery and closure systems to move effortlessly within the tortuous paths within the human anatomy.

Our coated mandrels excel in manufacturing processes that use heat to create an atraumatic tip or when bonding compliant and non-compliant balloon materials like Nylon and Pebax to catheters.

Often you can find an R&D engineer using our mandrels to for any cutting application that requires a blade such as extrusion cutting, skiving, notching and drilling for inflation or drug delivery.

Whether used in a heat or a cutting application, our customer’s are leveraging our proprietary coated products while designing and developing advanced imaging, access and delivery and closure systems in the below areas:
