FEP heat shrink tubing is used in various medical applications. FEPs 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 Optinovas trademark of a high quality, consistent extrusion for medical devices. Recommended shrink temperatures from 200˚C (390˚F). 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
