New England Catheter works with clients to design custom products based on the unique product performance characteristics that are required. Braid reinforced tubing, lubricious lined catheter shafts and tubing that utilizes conductors or linear strength members are all examples of products the company can manufacture.
The company specializes in the design and manufacture of thin-wall tight tolerance extrusion, multi-lumen braided tubing and tubing with layers of thermoplastic resins bonded to layers of fluoropolymer resins. Round or flat stainless steel wire, high strength fiber materials, plastic monofilament and a number of other materials can be used as the braided reinforcement component of most tubing products.
New England Catheter has manufactured tubing as small as .035 OD up to 1.00 OD using fluoropolymers, nylon, polyurethane, Pebax®, polyethylene, PVC and most other thermoplastic compounds. We stock stainless steel wire from .0015 to .010 in diameter and flat wire from .001x.002 to .003x.012 in hard and soft tempers for braiding using 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 and 48 carriers.
