New Developments in Catheter Shaft Components


This webinar is focused on catheter shaft componentry with a deeper dive into polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) liners and fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP). Information provided will contain a mix of polymer material science, specifications of extruded fluoropolymers, engineering considerations for fluoropolymer use and processing of those. We will also cover new developments for PTFE as well as FEP heat shrink including the ultrathin (less than .001” wall thickness) extruded liners and peelable heat shrink.
