Zeus Industrial Products, Inc., a polymer solutions provider and material science innovator, has expanded its StreamLiner™ family of thin, extruded PTFE catheter liners. Using a proprietary process, Zeus can now extrude liners over-the-wire (OTW) in sizes comparable to film cast tubing, but with greater strength. The new StreamLiner OTW UT, the thinnest extruded liner yet, offers a nominal wall thickness as low as 0.0004” (0.0102 mm) with a tolerance of +/- 0.0002” (0.0051 mm).
By extruding over wire, Zeus has produced the desired combination of wall thickness, flexibility, and strength. Zeus’ StreamLiner OTW products allow medical device manufacturers to develop safer, smoother and stronger catheters that can navigate deeper into a patient’s vasculature.
