high pressure tubing is commonly used as a flush line for contrast injection in applications such as:
• Angiographic catheters
• Balloon catheters
• High pressure injection of materials suitable for implantation, which include orthopedic bone cement or other high viscosity fluids
For balloon catheter applications, high pressure tubing is manufactured with specialized processes for maintaining high purity and reduced gels so that the thinnest possible wall thickness can be obtained during the balloon forming process. A range of materials are available to meet your design requirements for flexibility and kink resistance.
For certain applications, specialty coextruded high pressure tubing is available that maintains pressure through the use of an inner liner material with high tensile strength joined to an outer layer of tough, durable material that offers greater flexibility and kink resistance.
