- Accelerate Your Prototyping
Zeus Sub-Lite-Wall® is our family of super-thin-walled extrusions with wall thicknesses of 0.005″ (0.127 mm) and below and tolerances as low as ± 0.0005″ (0.0127 mm). Our Sub-Lite-Wall® extrusions fill a critical need for applications requiring super thin walls and high-performance properties.
Sub-Lite-Wall® tubing helps design engineers in the medical and industrial sectors achieve new performance standards and increase the workspaces they can access. Material options for Sub-Lite-Wall® tubing include PTFE, FEP, PFA, and PEEK to allow for further customization options and to meet the unique performance requirements of your design.
PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® Liners
Since interventional medical devices were first designed using PTFE, Zeus’ PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® liners have been at the forefront of innovation. With industry-leading sizing, tight tolerances, and high-performance properties, Zeus PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® liners are an ideal choice for a wide variety of advanced vascular catheter designs. We offer PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® liners in a vast range of wall thicknesses and inside diameters, allowing catheter manufacturers to minimize their profile while maximizing performance.
Today, our Sub-Lite-Wall® family of extruded products has grown to also include Sub-Lite-Wall® heat shrink, Sub-Lite-Wall® multi-lumen tubing, and our Sub-Lite-Wall® StreamLiner™ series – all developed to help our customers overcome engineering obstacles, simplify production processes, and explore cutting-edge device designs.

Catheters – Our Sub-Lite-Wall® products support the critical functions and construction of a range of catheter types from steerable and deflectable catheters down to the smallest microcatheter.
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.
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.
- KEY PROPERTIES
Customization Available – Sub-Lite-Wall® is available for customization in regular and extended micro-miniature sizes and in heat shrink and multi-lumen options.
Super-Thin Walls – With wall thicknesses of 0.005″ (0.127 mm) and below, we offer among the thinnest free extruded walls 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.
