Multi layer Extruded tubing, with high concentricity (more than 90%), enables the catheter to handle high pressures consistently and effectively. With the co-extrusion process, unlike welded tubing, our seamless precision tubing meets critical design tolerance. Ideal for the application requires handling high pressure evenly, such as a balloon catheter, for ensuring a tight fit between balloon and blood vessel wall.

Asahi Intecc – GMA (ISO 13485; Clean Room environment) offers the highest level of consistent concentricity for single-lumen extrusions. A polymer tube’s concentricity results in stronger resistance to burst pressure and ease to assemble other parts. Concentricity of our extruded polymer shafts naturally results in a consistently superior appearance, compared to the often eccentric shapes of other polymer tubings in the global marketplace. As Asahi Intecc has in-house polymer compounding capabilities with a choice of small size and middle size twin screw extruders, we can choose the equipment and the conditions to optimize the concentricity and surface conditions of our polymer extrusions.
