Zeus Industrial Products Inc. announced the launch of their new PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall Streamliner series. Sub-Lite-Wall is part of the Zeus family of extremely thin-walled extrusions (below 0.005″/0.127 mm) 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″ (0.01905 mm).
“Zeus customers have leveraged the capability of our Sub-Lite-Wall products for decades of catheter design and development, from guide sheaths for varying flexibility and strength down to the smallest microcatheter,” says Bob Jennings, senior vice president of medical sales and marketing at Zeus. “The StreamLiner series goes a step further in that the products enable device engineers to increase catheter lumen space and effectively lower the overall profile of the device. This makes it an exciting addition to a portfolio of design options for next-generation minimally invasive therapies.”
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.
