Fostalon(TM) 5000 Series of flexible nylon compounds fill a void in the flexural modulus data between 80,000 and 120,000 psi, and insure the compounds are dimensionally stable, with minimal shrinkage after extrusion. The series is fully compatible with radiopaque fillers such as barium, bismuth, and tungsten, targeting it for use in medical product applications such as catheters, hubs, and shafts.
