High Pressure Medical Tubing
High pressure tubing is available in a variety of braided configurations, including stainless steel or nitinol wire, as well as polymer filaments, such as nylon, PET, PEN, Kevlar™, carbon fiber, Spectra™, Vectran™, and other materials.
For space-critical applications, polyimide tubing may be added as a composite material combined with braid or coil reinforcement as a variety of thermoplastic jacket materials for designs that require high-pressure tubing with thin walls.
High Pressure Medical Tubing Applications
Duke Extrusion’s high pressure tubing is ideal for use in numerous medical device applications. It is commonly used as a flush line for contrast injection in applications such as:
- Angiographic catheters
- Balloon catheters
- High-pressure injection of materials suitable for implantation, which include orthopedic bone cement or other high viscosity fluids
For balloon catheter applications, high-pressure tubing is manufactured with specialized processes for maintaining high purity and reduced gels so that the thinnest possible wall thickness can be obtained during the balloon forming process. A range of materials are available to meet your design requirements for flexibility and kink resistance.
For certain applications, specialty coextruded high pressure tubing is available that maintains pressure through the use of an inner liner material with high tensile strength joined to an outer layer of tough, durable material that offers greater flexibility and kink resistance.
