Applications for Medical Tubing

  • Abrasion Protection for Medical Instruments
    Useful in areas where abrasion resistance is needed; improve reliability in high contact applications. (MT1000, MT3000)
  • Balloon and Stent Process Aid
    MT-LWA for use in laser-welding operations of stents and balloons, hot jaw bonding or other secondary value-add processes.
  • Laparoscopic-Electrosurgical Device Insulation
    High-performance insulation and chemical resistance
  • Protection and Insulation of Highly Flexible Joints
    Provides durability through repeated use and additional flexibility
  • Sterilization Versatility
    Support various types of sterilization to meet device and use requirements
