Putnam Plastic Offers RilSlix Coated Mandrels and Wires That are Suitable for Multi-Lumen Catheters

The RilSlix™ Coated Mandrels and Wires can be used as a processing aid in catheter manufacturing. The RilSlix compounds are formulated with PFOA free, REACH compliant materials. The mandrels and coatings are compatible with material (stainless steel, silver plated copper, and Nitinol) in diameters ranging from 0.254 mm to 12.7 mm. They are suitable for reflow processes or continuous processes...

Extruded Tubing optimizes variable catheter shaft flexiblity.
Fluid & Gas Flow Equipment

Extruded Tubing optimizes variable catheter shaft flexiblity.

Taper-Tie™ suits catheter shafts that require- optimum flexibility on one end for forward navigation (distal) and rigidity on other end (proximal) for directional control by physicians.- Continuous manufacturing method produces catheter shaft with variable properties along length and eliminates need for manual assembly of discrete segments. Extrusion process can change from rigid to soft...

Polymer Marker Bands adhere to catheter shaft tips.
Fasteners & Hardware

Polymer Marker Bands adhere to catheter shaft tips.

Made from tungsten filled polymers, such as nylons, urethanes, and thermoplastic elastomers, Polymer Marker Bands are intended for fluoroscopic illumination of catheter tips used in minimally invasive medical procedures. Tungsten loadings range from 65-80% by weight to meet radiopacity requirements. Available with IDs from 0.014-0.200 in. and wall thicknesses from 0.002-0.030 in., bands eliminate...
