Extrusion Wire and mandrels with Teflon® coating used as manufacturing aid for Cardiovascular Catheters

A line of extrusion wire and forming mandrels with Teflon® coating used as manufacturing aid only for cardio-vascular catheters, balloons and related devices where a clean inside diameter is absolutely critical, is available from Applied Plastics Company Inc, of Norwood, Massachusetts.

Applied Plastics’ Extrusion Wire is fabricated using a proprietary etching process that eliminates flaking and permits over 25% elongation to assure a catheter’s clean I.D. Supplied on spools or cut to length, this fine extrusion wire features a 0.05 coefficient of friction, allowing manufacturers to increase their cardiovascular catheter output.

Providing a slippery, anti-stick surface, Applied Plastics’ Extrusion Wire can be produced using stainless steel, nitinol, platinum, and silver plated copper core wire. Sizes can range from 0.001” to 0.070” dia. with a 0.0001” per side Teflon® coating. Applications include cardiovascular and epidural catheters, formed balloons, and other bio-compatible devices.

Applied Plastics’ Extrusion Wire and Mandrels with Teflon® coating are priced according to core wire, coating thickness, length and quantity. Samples, price quotations, and literature are available upon request.

Superior medical devices require superior coatings.

Our proprietary PTFE Natural® coated mandrels offer unmatched benefits.

low-co-friction

Low Coefficient of Friction

PTFE Natural® coatings provide a coefficient of friction generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load and sliding speed.

heat-resistance

HEAT-RESISTANCE

PTFE Natural® coatings can operate continuously at temperatures up to 550°F and can be used for intermittent service up to 600°F with adequate ventilation.

non-stick

Non-Stick

Non-Stick Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a PTFE Natural® coating. While tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.

chemical-resistance

CHEMICAL RESISTANCE

Chemical environments usually do not affect a PTFE Natural® coating. Only molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents are known to affect this coating.

robust-coating

ROBUST COATING

The proprietary PTFE Natural™ coating process enhances the substrate bonding surface to provide optimum lubricity without flaking or cracking.

non-wetting

NON-WETTING

Since PTFE Natural® finishes are both hydrophobic and oleophobic, cleanup is easier and more thorough.
