Fluoropolymers and engineered materials

Advanced Products, Superior Performance

Fluoropolymers and engineered materials have become the preferred choice for high-performance applications across a vast array of industries. With superior characteristics, these materials have replaced metals in many applications, ranging from medical devices to aerospace. Fluoropolymers and engineered materials offer a variety of enhanced performance capabilities for medical applications, including higher operating temperatures, chemical resistance, and thin wall configurations that offer high torque strength and flexibility in a thin wall configuration. These properties are allowing engineers to advance designs in both minimally invasive and diagnostic devices. These advancements are helping to allow more procedures to be performed on an out-patient basis; minimizing patient discomfort, reducing hospital stays and helping to control overall healthcare costs.
