Vention Medical has created an advanced polymer that generates countless possibilities and uses within the medical device world. These five short video tutorials (just 30-90 seconds each) demonstrate how to use PET heat shrink tubing, which combines incredible strength and durability with extremely thin walls.
Vention provides tip and tricks for using its PET heat shrink tubing on a catheter.
The second video tutorial explains how to skiff and remove the PET heat shrink tubing.
The third video tutorial demonstrates how form a smooth catheter tip using PET heat shrink tubing.
PET heat shrink tubing can be used to join two catheter tubes without bothersome adhesives.
PET heat shrink tubing can increase the rigidity and stability of your catheter shaft.
Vention’s polyester heat shrink tubing is thin-walled, ultra-high-strength, optically clear or pigmented and heat shrinkable. These unique properties are made possible by a proprietary process developed exclusively by Vention Medical’s Advanced Polymers team.
The tubing can be used as is or heat shrunk for a variety of applications, using temperatures low enough to protect delicate components, yet high enough to achieve the desired result.
The ability to “draw down” the polyester heat shrink allows users to reduce the diameter of the tube by up to 70% while maintaining an ultra-thin wall and creating an ultra-high-strength tube. All of this can be done at temperatures as low as 70°C.
