Zeus Sub-Lite-Wall™ tubing is our family of ultra-thin-walled extrusions with wall thicknesses from 0.005″ (0.127 mm) and below. This premium engineered tubing maintains tolerances as low as ± 0.0005″ (0.0127 mm). Typically available in PTFE, Sub-Lite-Wall® tubing can be formed in both regular and extended micro-miniature dimensions and heat shrink versions. Sub-Lite-Wall® is also available in FEP, PFA, and PEEK resins allowing further customization for your product and application.

New From Zeus

Introducing Sub-Lite-Wall™ StreamLiner™ XT! This new micro-dimensional PTFE catheter liner tubing improves upon our already best-in-class wall thickness to 0.00075″ (0.01905 mm) to create the ultimate in micro-size catheters. Made with our LoPro™ technology, product has the thinnest walls in the industry. We offer a higher level of customization and opportunity for our customer partners to explore new device design capabilities.

Please note that the sizes listed below are a guide for PTFE tubing and Heat Shrink. Size options vary for FEP, PFA, PEEK, and other fluoropolymer resins for Sub-Lite-Wall™ tubing. You can define your own specifications with the assurance that Zeus can meet your requirements in extruded or heat shrink versions.

  • APPLICATIONS

    Balloon and Stent Protectors – Zeus’ novel stent encapsulation technology provides a safe and biocompatible means for controlled implantation of stent devices. Our polymer covering mimics the body’s extracellular matrix minimizing the possibility of rejection.

    Batteries – Zeus heat shrinks are a popular choice where efficiency and dielectric strength are most important for battery coverings. These heat shrinks remove the waste and inconsistency of tape and can be installed quicker and easier than wrapping.

    Catheter Lead Delivery – Our Sub-Lite-Wall™ products support the critical functions and construction of a range of catheter types from guide sheaths for varying flexibility and strength down to the smallest microcatheter.

    Dental – Our white colored PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall™ heat shrink has gained widespread favor as a covering for braces to increase smile appeal.

    Endoscopy – Our Sub-Lite-Wall™ inner liners for catheters provide the utmost in lubricity, electrical performance, chemical resistance, and are UV sterilizable. Because of their extremely low coefficient of friction, these liners are ideal as inner walls through which instruments can be passed.

    Fiber Optics – Zeus provides fiber optics coatings in a wide range of options including our Sub-Lite-Wall™ to protect your valuable transmission components. Aside from their protective benefits, our coatings provide added strength to your optical fiber cables and wires.

    HPLC – For sophisticated analytical and purification applications, the integrity of your system’s flow path is of critical importance. Our extremely thin walled coatings and tubing can stand up to the pressures, temperatures, and chemical exposures for your application and help you move your science forward.

    Introducer Sheaths – These devices provide the means for getting your intervention where it is needed. Our sheath construction components provide lubricity and flexibility while maintaining small diameter size preferred for these devices.

    Sensors – Heat shrink options are a convenient and efficient way to protect and insulate valuable sensors from harsh environments. Zeus Sub-Lite Wall™ heat shrink provides multiple customization options for your exact operating conditions allowing for extended life of your sensor components.

  • KEY PROPERTIES

    Customization Available in PTFE, FEP, PFA, and PEEK – Our Sub-Lite-Wall™ tubing is available for customization in regular and extended micro-miniature sizes and in heat shrink options.

    Extremely Small Wall Thickness – With wall thicknesses of 0.005″ (0.127 mm) and below, we offer among the smallest wall thicknesses available. These extrusions typically maintain tolerances of ± 0.0005″ (0.0127 mm).

    Multiple Sterilization Options – PTFE, FEP, PFA, and PEEK are all amenable to multiple sterilization protocols for use in medical or laboratory environments.

    Uniform Inside and Outside Diameters – For consistency and reliability, you can be assured that your Sub-Lite-Wall™ tubing will conform to the exacting specification you require.
