Extruded Medical Grade Tubing
We manufacture precision medical tubing solutions for a wide range of single-use medical device applications. These include intravenous (IV) administration, hemodialysis devices, insulin delivery, cardiopulmonary bypass equipment, wound drainage and much more. Our medical grade tubes are used in hospital, clinic and home settings worldwide.
We offer precision extruded tubing for endovascular catheters and minimally invasive devices. We also manufacture custom medical tubing for diagnostic and interventional devices from a wide range of thermoplastics.
Thermoplastic polymers are made up of long linear chain molecules. The materials are easily processed into different types of products and are one of the most important classes of plastic materials used in the medical device industry.
Polyolefins combine polyethylene and polypropylene thermoplastics which are manufactured by the polymerization of ethylene and propylene respectively. The versatility of polyolefins has made them one of the most prevalent plastics in use today.
