Extrusion (Over-Coating of Mandrels/ Over-Jacketing of Hypotubes)
In over-coating/over-jacketing, a core mandrel or hypotube (can be a braided component, profiled mandrel or hypotube) is fed through an extruder to coat a layer of thermoplastic polymer.
VistaMed can provide coatings as thin as 0.001", depending on size of substrate. We can overjacket laser cut hypotube for balloon catheter applications also. VistaMed work with numerous materials, including but not limited to Polyurethane, Pebax®, Polyamides, and various Blends.
We will work with you to determine the ideal over-coating/over-jacketing material for your unique application. Contact VistaMed with your requirements.
