Chronoprene® Medical Tubing
Chronoprene® is a unique thermoplastic elastomer tubing used in the medical device industry due to its combination of high elongation, high flexural modulus, and tensile strength. It is significantly less permeable than silicone, yet is heat-sealable, bondable, and formable. Chronoprene® can be sterilized by radiation or ETO, and is abrasion resistant and UV stable.
Chronoprene® is available in hardnesses from 5A to 75A and can be extruded to precise I.D., O.D., and wall dimensions. It is excellent for very low durometer applications, such as catheter outer shafts (for added flexibility) or balloon tubing in occlusion balloons.
With ultimate elongation over 1500%, Chronoprene® elastomeric resins provide device designers with material properties which enable novel applications and overcome the limitations of traditional materials.
Chronoprene® is USP Class VI compliant.
