TOP 5 Reasons to usefilm-coat ptfe liner tubing for your next catheter design
 
 
Vention is at the forefront of the evolution of the film-coat process.
With decades of experience manufacturing polyimide tubing, we’ve further developed the film-coat process to fabricate PTFE and other thermoplastic tubing.
 
 
 
Reason #1:
Ultrathin Walls (0.0005”-0.0020”)
 
Maximize Space in your Device
 
An ultrathin PTFE liner maximizes ID and gives you
space to do more with your device, whether it’s adding
reinforcement or adding additional layers. A thinner liner
also minimizes OD, for a shaft that takes up less space.
 
Using the film-coat process, we can fabricate PTFE
liner tubing with a wall as thin as 0.0005” (0.0127 mm),
or even as thin as 0.0003” (0.0076 mm), depending on
the design.
 
In contrast, extruded PTFE liner tubing has much
thicker walls—an average of 0.002” (0.051 mm).

Real-Life Example
 
One customer was able to improve insertion force and reduce the profile of
its catheter shaft by 10% by using a film-coat PTFE liner with a wall
thickness of 0.0005" (0.0127 mm) instead of a thicker extruded PTFE liner.
