Natvar, a Tekni-Plex business, will unveil its latest medical tubing innovations at Life Sciences Forum, event, which will take place in between 15 and 16 October in San Jose, Costa Rica.
Natvar is recognized as a leader in traditional PVC tubing solutions including multilayer combinations featuring polyethylene and EVA, as well as anti-kinking options. Its recently-launched microextrusion tubing solutions will also be featured at Life Sciences Forum.
Microextrusion tubing has been developed in recent years to service a wide variety of demanding neurovascular interventional therapies and surgical applications.
Natvar’s microextrusion medical tubing can be made from cost-effective thermoplastics and other highly-engineered materials.
Because it can consistently hold tight tolerances, it is an ideal alternative to more expensive materials such as glass and fluoropolymers.
Natvar’s technical expertise enables it to microextrude monolayer, coextruded, multi-lumen tubing or profiles in a variety of thermoplastic (PVC, urethanes, TPEs) materials and wall thicknesses ranging from .003 to .005 inches. It can be coextruded in up to four layers.
Natvar is an innovative global supplier of medical tubing solutions for a broad spectrum of medical device products that target hospital, physician, dental healthcare and in-home use.
Its global footprint is supported by five manufacturing facilities located in the United States, Costa Rica, China and Belgium. Natvar’s precision-crafted tubing solutions are used by leading medical device companies around the world for applications such as intravenous therapy, dialysis, cardiac surgery and many others.
