HEAT SHRINK TUBING: | HAVE YOU TRIED THESE UNIQUE USES?
 
With its strength, durability, and ultrathin walls, PET heat shrink
tubing is used for a wide range of medical device applications.
 
But did you know these unique, fun facts about PET heat shrink tubing?
 
 
 
Stays flexible at temps as low as -350° F
 
Though PET heat shrink tubing is stiff, it remains flexible at very cold temperatures, making it ideal for cryoablation applications.
 
 
 
Simple and stronger microcatheter
 
Can become a simple—yet strong—microcatheter
 
A simple microcatheter made with a PET heat shrink tubing jacket and coil reinforcement can hold > 1000 psi, making this tubing well suited for high-pressure applications.
 
 
 
 
3. Can encapsulate braid ends
 
PET heat shrink tubing can secure the ends of braided sections of a reinforced catheter shaft. The tubing provides a smooth transition over sharp edges and prevents the braid from unraveling or poking through the thermoplastic layer, without adding significantly to the profile.
 
 
 
Micro hose clamps
 
Can be used as micro hose clamps
 
With its high hoop strength, PET heat shrink tubing offers effective reinforcement. For example, narrow bands of tubing on either side of a balloon can act as micro hose clamps to support the bond and help to prevent failure under pressure.
 
 
 
 
 
5. Can be used as a mask for coating or spraying
 
During a coating process, PET heat shrink tubing can protect the areas that you don’t want to be coated or sprayed.
