Teleflex Medical OEM uses a unique combination of ductility, strength, and stiffness to provide greater toughness and durability than competing polyimide-tubing designs. This becomes apparent during cyclical stress applications. In addition, repeated changes in bending, pressure, and tension do not compromise the structural integrity of our polyimide tubing.
Polyimide is a cross-linked thermoset polymer that is comprised of organic compounds that were originally developed and formulated by DuPont®.
Polyimide tubing, in general, uses a layering process to build tube walls. We use a continuous dip coat process that reduces delamination of these layers unlike inferior, less elastic tubing designs.
