Silicone Medical Balloons
Our proprietary OptimaX® Silicone Balloon-Forming Process, provides industry-leading longevity, durability, and performance under harsh stomach conditions.
Our proprietary OptimaX Silicone Balloon-Forming Process results in highly acid-resistant silicone balloons with superior performance that last up to 5 times longer than currently available balloons used in enteral feeding devices.*
Our transfer molding process produces balloons with ≤2:1 ratio when measured from the center of the shaft.
Our balloons are available as individual cuffs or bonded to a silicone extrusion to form a catheter subassembly.
* Testing for the reported data was conducted per ASTM F2528-06, Procedure G – Simulated Gastric Fluid 5.49-5.58, acid test for enteral feeding devices with a retention balloon. The “5 times longer” statement is based on results recorded at 40 days compared with the results of the second leading performers-available at the time of testing. Sizes ranging from 16 to 20 French were randomly placed in the acid tanks and results were recorded on a daily basis.
