Hytrel® Tubing for Medical Applications
Hytrel® is a specialty thermoplastic polyester-polyether copolymer manufactured by DuPont. DUKE Extrusion offers Hytrel® tubing for catheters and other medical applications.
Hytrel® tubing is highly versatile, offering a wide range of grades having the flexibility of rubber through high stiffness and hardness up to 82D. Hytrel® tubing exhibits excellent toughness and resilience, as well as high resistance to creep, impact, and flex fatigue. It remains flexible at low temperatures and is resistant to many chemicals, oils, and solvents. Hytrel® tubing also retains its beneficial properties at very high temperatures.
Hytrel® tubing is available in a wide range of durometers and is ideal for medical applications that require a balance of flexibility and toughness, such as balloons, catheter shafts, and catheter tips.
