Stripping/Recoating Service renews fuse welding/tipping mandrels.

March 20, 2014

Forming Mandrel Strip and Recoat Service strips Parylene® and PTFE coatings from forming mandrels (0.020 in. dia and up) and applies PTFE Natural™ coating. Featuring smooth, anti-stick surface that withstands up to 300°C continuous, with excursions to 371°C, PTFE Natural-coated forming mandrels provide 0.05 coefficient of friction per ASTM-1894 to simplify catheter removal in fuse welding and tipping operations. Process enhances bonding surface while also prevents flaking and cracking. Read More
