PTFE Natural® Coated Mandrels
As an experienced PTFE coating supplier, we apply a robust PTFE coating to provide a consistent and lubricious surface finish on straight, custom tapered and multiple step mandrels. Our manufacturing team is experienced in coating complex grind configurations and transitions based on your needs. In addition, we can provide PTFE coating removal services. We can manage the entire supply chain or you can send us your ground mandrels.
Bonding, Forming, Tipping and Welding Mandrels:
- Catheter shaft and distal end features requiring exceptional mold release and high operating temperatures during the manufacturing process
Reflow Processing Mandrels:
- PTFE Natural® coated mandrels can withstand operating temperatures intermittently up to 550°F and provide exceptional release during catheter reflow processes
- Ideal due to coating durability while supporting multi-lumen applications
- Ideal to measure inside diameter of metal and polymer tubing

Our proprietary PTFE Natural® coated mandrels offer unmatched benefits.
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.
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.
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 environments usually do not affect a PTFE Natural® coating. Only molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents are known to affect this coating.
The proprietary PTFE Natural® coating process enhances the substrate bonding surface to provide optimum lubricity without flaking or cracking.
Since PTFE Natural® finishes are both hydrophobic and oleophobic, cleanup is easier and more thorough.
