Solid Rod Extrusions
Solid rod thermoplastic extrusions are used as mandrels to assist in the reprocessing of catheters, as push rods, and to deploy implantable devices in catheter shafts, among other applications.
Duke Extrusion can produce custom solid plastic rod extrusions in numerous configurations, including crescent or half-moon shapes, tapered plastic mandrels, and square profiles. We can manufacture solid plastic rod extrusions from a wide range of materials, including HDPE, PolySlix, PebaSlix, and other high-lubricity thermoplastics that aid in the removal of plastic mandrel devices.
Braided plastic mandrels and other specialty configurations are also available.
