Parker Medical Grade
FEP Heat Shrink for catheter forming has a uniform recovery and a maximum constrained
elongation up to + 5 percent. This reduced elongation limits the possibility of
curling or pigtailing, to eliminate marks, ridges and thread effects. With a
faster recovery time, Parker TexLoc Medical Grade FEP Heat Shrink is responsive
in reflow applications for catheter manufacturing. It allows the heat shrink to
soften and contain the resins being reflowed beneath, forming a smooth
transition and uniform wall from one resin to the next. When using a slightly
thicker wall, two paths can be scored 180 degrees apart, enabling removal after
the reflow is complete. This reduces marring of the resins beneath from
gripping or cutting after the shrink process.
TexLoc Medical Grade FEP Heat Shrink is available in custom sizes. Your
application determines the expanded I.D., recovered I.D. and wall thickness.
The technology allows faster deliveries, even with the addition of custom
enhancements such as scoring and cutting. Samples are available upon request.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
