PEEK tubing for catheter-based devices

Versatile PEEK Tubing

PEEK is becoming an increasing popular choice for catheter-based devices. With excellent strength and heat endurance, PEEK is one of the few polymers that can replace metal, even in high-temperature sterilization applications. This versatile material allows designers to heat form, tip, taper, flare, or flange complex catheter designs. Visit our Online Store for PEEK extrusions, in stock and ready to ship within 24 hours. Contact us to discuss custom medical extruded tubing, including single-lumen, multilumen, and multilayer tubing items.

Medical Extruded Tubing: Process Parameters and Equipment Play Critical Role in Performance Characteristics

According to Vention CTO Mark Saab, sometimes process parameters and extrusion equipment are more important than the actual dimensions of the tube.

State-of-the-art extrusion equipment

In-house Equipment & Expertise

Vention brings state-of-the-art extrusion equipment together with materials and engineering expertise to develop specialized extruded tubing for the most demanding interventional and surgical applications. We offer:

  • Best-in-class tolerances
  • Fastest medical polyurethane line in the world (> 300 million feet annually)
  • Automatic closed-loop feedback systems that allow us to maintain constant melt pressure to minimize process variation
  • Validated processes to support customer compliance
  • Cleanroom environment for all commercial extrusions
multilayer extruded tubing with the industry’s tightest tolerances

Coextruded Multilayer Tubing

Vention can produce extruded tubing with up to 3 layers of different materials to create tubing with enhanced performance characteristics. Chemically dissimilar materials can be extruded together using a proprietary tie layer. We’re proud to say we can produce the tightest tolerances in the medical extruded tubing industry.

Benefits of Coextruded Multilayer Tubing

  • Can create extruded tubing with different interior and exterior surfaces
  • Materials with different properties can be combined to optimize tubing performance
  • Active materials can be located in the optimal layer
  • Bondable materials can be used inside or outside to facilitate device assembly
  • Can be custom made to your specifications
