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

APC Teflon® Coated Mandrels have uniform, non-flaking coating that provides smooth, slippery surface which is chemically inert and withstands up to 500°F operating temperatures. Made from stainless steel or nitinol, mandrels are tested in accordance with ASTM-1894. Wire is grit blasted before Teflon® coatings are applied from 0.00005 to 0.0008 in. thick onto wire from 0.005 to 0.45 in. dia, with ±.0001 in. final dia. tolerances. Read More
