Developing advanced catheters that improve patient outcomes
Cardiovascular catheters are needed to perform diagnostic testing and treat complex medical conditions. Common material solutions have reliability issues – prompting more medical equipment suppliers to leverage high-strength, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE). Yet, this material often leads to variations in extrusion behavior and problems during secondary assembly processes. DSM’s Arnitel® Care is ideal for producing safe and reliable catheters that are optimized for high-stress clinical environments and reduce operating costs for manufacturers.
