FEP Heatshrink Solutions

FEP heat shrink tubing is used in various medical applications. FEP’s beneficial
properties, such as lubricity, clarity, chemical resistance as well
as favorable anti-stick surface makes it an excellent choice for reflow
processing of catheter shafts, coating surgical instruments, encapsulation,
dielectric, insulation etc.
Optinova offer two versions of heat shrink tubing,
1.6: 1 FEP HS & FEP QuickShrink 2.0.
Both versions are available in customized sizes and
from our stock of specially selected dimensions.

1.6: 1 FEP Heat Shrink Tubing
The 1.6:1 FEP HS from Optinova is a cost effective heat shrink solution,
utilizing Optinova’s trademark of a high quality, consistent extrusion
for medical devices. Recommended shrink temperatures from 200˚C
Features & benefits
• Outstanding chemical resistance
• Low gas permeability
• Excellent transmission of UV rays
• Excellent electrical insulation values
• Sterilization compatibility: Gamma, ETO, e-beam and autoclave

FEP QuickShrink™ 2.0 Heat Shrink Tubing
Unique features of the FEP QuickShrink™ 2.0 are the
fast shrinking process that gives shorter production cycle
and lower production costs. Also, FEP QuickShrink™
2.0 has a low and adjustable shrink temperature between
80°C–170°C (176°F–338°F). The low shrink temperature
makes FEP QuickShrink™ 2.0 an ideal solution for
processing of materials with low melt temperature as
overheating can be avoided.
Features & benefits
• Rapid shrinking process
• Cost-saving product design
• Lower shrinking temperature
• Outstanding chemical resistance
• Low gas permeability
• Excellent transmission of UV rays
• Excellent electrical insulation values
• Sterilization compatibility: Gamma, ETO, e-beam and autoclave
