Medical Grade FEP Heat Shrink

Medical Grade FEP Heat Shrink

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.

Parker 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.
