Medical Tubing Products

Polyzen offers state-of-the-art, small diameter tube manufacturing for minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic devices as well as large, thin-wall blown tubing for protective sleeves. In-house material formulation, tool and die development, prototype extruders, and production equipment are available for a wide range of medical device applications. Our testing and validation experts ensure all tubing meets performance and regulatory requirements necessary for marketed medical devices.

Catheter Tube Extrusions

Extrusion of small-diameter, thin-wall tubing used for minimally invasive medical catheters is a special area of expertise at Polyzen. Our extrusion equipment is capable of producing tube diameters from 0.005 to 0.350 inches. Common wall thicknesses for many vascular catheters range from 0.001 to 0.004 inches, depending upon material and design configurations.

We also offer blow molding of extruded tubes to produce a range of catheter balloons as well as injection molding of hubs, lures, and other catheter components. In-house bonding, insert-molding, and assembly allows us to provide complete catheter solutions for prototype evaluation and large-scale production.

Medical Tubing Materials

Polyzen’s custom tube manufacturing capabilities allow for the use of many standard and custom polymer formulations. Examples include thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs), thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), polyamides (nylons, Pebax*), ethylene vinyl acetates (EVAs), polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), polypropylene, and polyethylene. Our in-house compounding capabilities allow us to enhance properties of these polymers with radiopaque fillers, custom colors, stabilizers, and more.
