Medical Tube Extrusion
Medical extrusion involves the process of forcing molten thermoplastics through a die to achieve a desired shape upon cooling. Polyzen is a trusted leader in the extrusion of medical grade tubes. Our capabilities include extrusion of small diameter tubing used for catheters, drainage tubes, drug delivery, and much more. These extrusions are available in single and multi-layer material configurations.
Small tubes used for minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic procedures often require materials with unique performance properties, including radiopacity and hydrophilicity. Our material science experts are available to develop custom polymer formulations to ensure optimal product performance and extrusion quality. Our in-house tool room provides quick turnaround of tight-tolerance dies for prototype and production extrusion runs.
