Engineering steerable and deflectable catheters can be challenging, especially when manufacturers are required to procure and bundle several individual liners into a final catheter assembly. This delicate process can be time-consuming and is prone to error in both development and manufacturing settings.
Zeus PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® multi-lumen extrusions help simplify this process while eliminating multiple manufacturing steps and complex tooling by providing engineers a single, process-ready multi-lumen extrusion.
Benefits of Sub-Lite-Wall® Multi-Lumen:
High Structural Integrity
Improved Planarity & Performance
Extremely Thin Walls
“Based on early evaluator feedback, the time to assemble a steerable catheter was greatly reduced to one-fifth of the traditional time.” – Rodrigo Silva, Product Manager, Zeus
Sub-Lite-Wall® multi-lumen tubing consists of one large lumen with one to four smaller satellite lumens. As a part of our Sub-Lite-Wall® family of ultra-thin-walled extrusions, PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® multi-lumens can be produced with average wall thicknesses ranging from 0.002” to 0.005” (0.051 mm to 0.127 mm).
Note: All multi-lumen tubing is custom ordered. Sub-Lite-Wall® multi-lumen tubing is available in PTFE only.
