High Shrink Ratio – Zeus FluoroPEELZ® peelable heat shrink can accommodate larger tapers and catheter diameter transitions with shrink ratios up to 2:1.
Easily Removed – With the FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture, the tear process is easily begun with a precisely centered cut at the end of the recovered FluoroPEELZ® heat shrink.
Safe – The FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture contains a fully encapsulated blade completely shielding operators from contact with the cutting edge during normal use. The FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture also precisely centers the blade for cutting; this eliminates the need for operators having to manually re-cut the end of the heat shrink to start the peeling process.
Reduces Downstream Processing – The foolproof nature of FluoroPEELZ® and the FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture minimize rework and make the normal production process more expedient. Reduced processing means money saved!
Visual Inspection After Reflow – Because FluoroPEELZ® is transparent, production personnel can see the result of the reflow process as it happens. Detection of defects early in the production process allows corrective actions to be initiated sooner minimizing lost production time and product.
Smooth Catheter Surface Finish – The lubricious nature of FluoroPEELZ® prevents it from adhering or interacting with the underlying jacketing material of the catheter. This result is a smooth catheter finish when the FluoroPEELZ® is peeled away.
Moderate Recovery Temperature – We recommend beginning the FluoroPEELZ® recovery process at 420 °F (215 °C). This temperature is significantly lower than many other polymer heat shrinks insuring that a mandrel or liner made of PTFE will not reflow during the heat shrink process of catheter construction.
