Sub-Lite-Wall StreamLiner XT for catheter design
Zeus Industrial Products Inc. announces the launch of its PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall Streamliner series. Sub-Lite-Wall is part of the Zeus family of extremely thin-walled extrusions (below 0.005"/0.127mm) and the StreamLiner series represents the latest breakthrough in the company's already best-in-class catheter liner. The new product line enables even greater advancements in catheter design aimed at improving patient care and clinical outcomes.
Zeus Sub-Lite-Wall StreamLiner XT tubing is the first offering in the StreamLiner series, featuring an impressive maximum wall thickness of 0.00075" (0.01905mm). The new liner features Zeus' LoPro technology, leveraging more than 50 years of experience in developing state-of-the-art polymer manufacturing processes to achieve the thinnest extruded components in the industry.
As a free extrusion, Zeus Sub-Lite-Wall Streamliner XT also affords a stronger and more robust catheter liner with reduced deployment force compared to liners made using a dip-coated process.
