FluoroSLIX® Fluoropolymer Medical Tubing

FluoroSLIX® is the softest extruded thermoplastic medical tubing product on the market. When compared to urethane and Pebax®, FluoroSLIX® fluoropolymer tubing can withstand higher temperatures (550°F) and provides greater stretching flexibility. Since FluoroSLIX® can withstand hotter conditions, it is ideal for catheters that require high insulation properties.
