New Developments in Catheter Shaft Components – Part 2


This Webinar focuses on advancements in catheter shaft componentry with a deeper dive into film cast technology. Specifically, we will hone in on polyimide and lubricious polyimide.

In this presentation, a mix of polymer material science, specifications of film cast products, and engineering considerations for polyimide use will be discussed. We will also cover new developments for other catheter components such as high ratio heat shrinks for reflow operations as well as peelable heat shrinkable fusing sleeves.

An audience Q&A follows the presentation.
