- Accelerate Your Prototyping
As the world’s leader in polymer extrusions, Zeus strives to deliver solutions to spark breakthroughs. We offer an array of extruded tubing solutions serving industries from medical, aerospace, automotive, critical fluid transfer, electrical, fiber optics, oil and gas exploration, and more.
Zeus excels at extruding tubing from various performance materials including PE, PTFE, FEP, PFA, ETFE, PEEK, PVDF, Nylons, and more. These materials surpass others when it comes to lubricity, temperature and chemical resistance, dielectric insulation, flexibility, and mechanical strength. Our extruded tubing products can be found in almost every industry worldwide.
Below are selected examples from our expansive extruded tubing portfolio covering medical and general industrial applications. Be sure to ask about customization and samples.
American Wire Gauge (AWG) and Fractional Tubing
Many applications do not need customization. Zeus has a host of AWG and Fractional tubing sizes in resins such as PTFE, FEP, PFA, HP PFA, and ETFE to meet the demands of multiple industries requiring high performance tubing. AWG tubing can have a variety of wall thicknesses. We offer standard, thin, and lightweight AWG for your application. While our fractional tubing is available in these options, we have products with a more robust wall thickness such as industrial wall, heavy wall, and heavy construction wall.
PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® Tubing
Medical device manufacturers needing easier access through the body’s tortuous pathways use our customizable PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® tubing as a catheter liner because of the extremely thin walls (0.002″; 0.051 mm max), tight tolerances (± 0.0005″; 0.0127 mm), and superior lubricity.
Engineers in the medical and fiber optic markets benefit from Zeus’ multi-lumen tubing. This tubing has multiple channels or “lumens” that are extruded within a single outer diameter (OD). This process creates multiple working channels for wires, fibers, air, or fluids which fit inside one tube-shaped form yet are separated into individual pathways. You design, we deliver.
Spiral Cut Tubing
This conventional extruded tubing is precision cut after extrusion in a spiral manner along its length creating a flexible and expandable bundling aid for wire, cables, and optical fiber management. Zeus has standard sizes in PTFE but can also make custom runs in other resins such as FEP, ETFE, PFA, PEEK, Nylons, and more.
Aeos® ePTFE Porous Tubing
This extruded tubing is made by expanding PTFE under controlled conditions during the manufacturing process to create microscopic pores in the material structure. The material is highly hydrophobic by nature, but the porosity allows air or other gasses a passageway for analytical laboratory testing applications. Extruded Aeos® tubing is our most flexible tubing and can also be used as a soft catheter liner or conduit for fiber optics.
Double Containment Tubing
For fluid management applications, the “tube-in-tube” configuration of Double Containment Tubing forges a synergy between workplace safety, easy inspection, and purity. This tubing has an outer layer of optically clear FEP and inner layer of high purity PFA. This tubing type is commonly used in semi-conductor fabrication as the plumbing line of choice to contain highly caustic fluids.
The aerospace and automotive industries use our convoluted tubing, commonly ordered as M81914, as a flexible conduit that has excellent dielectric strength. Our convoluted tubing has the resilience necessary to protect wires and optical fibers against elevated temperatures and abrasion.
