Medical Heat Shrink Tubing

worlds thinnest, smallest, strongest heat shrink tubing

Vention is known for having the thinnest, smallest, and strongest medical tubing in the world. We are the exclusive supplier of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) medical heat shrink tubing, which uses a proprietary process developed by Advanced Polymers.

Thinnest, Yet Strongest

PET medical heat shrink tubing combines incredible strength and durability with extraordinarily thin walls. In addition, PET heat shrink tubing can be “drawn down” to reduce tube diameter by up to 70% while maintaining an ultrathin-wall and ultrahigh-strength tube. Learn more about how to size and process heat shrink tubing in our Technical Information.

PET heat shrink tubing is used for a wide range of medical device applications and as a manufacturing aid. In a recent white paper, Vention CTO Mark Saab revealed 5 ideal applications for thin-wall heat shrink tubing:
