How to Use Junflon® PHST
in Catheter and Guidewire Manufacturing
Problems with traditional method
Removing traditional FEP-HST tubing smoothly is a serious problem in Catheter Manufacturing. FEP-HST tubing is used to weld, laminate, tip and other processes. It is necessary to remove by “skiving”, this takes a long time and there is a possibility that the catheter can get damaged. Meanwhile, JUNFLON®Peelable Heat-shrink Tube makes it easy to peel away by just inserting a 10mm slit on one end of the tube.
PHST provide you with the following benefits.
PHST’s shrink force and temperature is suitable for polyamide-welding. It is possible to replace traditional FEP-HST easily because PHST’s shrink characteristics are essentially the same as traditional FEP-HST tubing. Also, PHST is manufactured from materials which meets USP Class Ⅵ plastics requirement.
PHST has been used successfully in the Polyamide-Welding process of Catheters and Guidewires. The following shows typical applications.
