Thin-walled pipes

Our PTFE Liner tubing features ultra thin wall (0.0003″), maximizes lumen potential of your catheter device for smooth delivery. The continuous-spooled process on the silver-plated copper-core mandrel realizes the streamlining .

Inner diameter: 0.15 mm – 5 mm
Outer diameter: 0.3 mm – 6 mm

The torque coil, a component for the medical device, is a highly flexible coil consisting of multiple layers with very fine wires. The coil is ideal for high-speed rotation in very tortuous routings or anatomies. Typical applications .

Inner diameter: 0.13 mm – 4 mm
Outer diameter: 0.21 mm – 5.22 mm

The ACT ONE, metal tubing component for the medical device, possesses a high torque transmission compared to polymer braided tubes and higher kink resistance and flexibility compared to hypo tubes. It’s ideal for application .
