Tube Extrusion

We are experts in manufacturing medical grade PVC tubing in a wide variety of configurations, grades, and durometers. Our solutions also extend into other polymers and coextrusions commonly used in single-use medical device applications. These include polyolefins, such as polypropylene and polyethylene, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). Our coextrusions of polyolefin lined PVC tubes are world renowned for medical gas and fluid transmission applications.

Medical Single Lumen Tubing

We offer an extensive range of extruded tubing manufactured from commercially established thermoplastics and elastomers used in medical applications.

Our material selection includes PVC Compounds, Cellene TPE Compounds, as well as other materials such as polyolefins, polycarbonates, silicone, and other high performance materials. Our proven extrusion technology and advanced equipment are able to extrude to very tight tolerances and specifications.

Medical Multi-Lumen Tubing

Our multi-lumen tubing can be configured according to the specific design requirements required by our customers and the end application of the device. Application areas include:

  • Respiratory
  • Suction/Irrigation
  • Neurology
  • Dialysis
  • Urology

Our material selection includes PVC Compounds, Cellene TPE Compounds, as well as other materials such as polyolefins, polycarbonates, silicone, and other high performance materials. Our proven extrusion technology and equipment are able to extrude to tight tolerances and specifications. We customize the tubing to meet our customer specifications, including diameter, thickness, material, lumen geometry and rating.

Medical Multi-Layer Tubing

Multi-layer tubes are designed to impart specific properties to a device/product that would not be possible by using a single material. Examples of tube configurations include:

  • PVC Outer Layer Construction
  • TPE Outer Layer Construction
  • PU Outer Layer Construction
  • PU Outer Layer with Gas Barrier
  • Polypropylene Based Outer Construction
  • Custom Configurations

Our multi-layer tubing is available in a variety of material constructions and can utilize various materials including PVC Compounds, Cellene TPE Compounds, polyurethane, polypropylene, EVOH, and other high performance materials. Our multilayer technology choices include tubing configurations with up to 5 layers. Most of the standard configurations include a bonding or tie layer to mitigate the risk of any delamination during tensile shock. Several of these unique product designs are patented. In addition, our extrusion process has 100% inline inspection of the tubing ID to ensure the fluid path is occlusion free.

Medical Fluid Management and Pump Tubing

Our medical pump tubing is available in a range of materials from FlexChem SR, FlexChem, ElastiChem, Cellene TPE, silicone, as well as other high performance materials to meet the stringent demands of the application.

Medical Wire Embedded Tubing

PVC medical tubing with embedded wires provides data and fluid transmission simultaneously in a single tube.

Medical Bubble and Transition Tubing

Bubble and transition tubing eliminates the need for plastic connector fittings.

Medical Coiled Tubing

Coiled tubing provides unparalleled elongation, while maintaining consistent fluid or gas flow channels.
