Micro Catheters

Through our Apollo Medical Extrusion company, the Spectrum Plastics Group has a reputation for some of the thinnest wall sections in the industry (0.0005 walls on microbore Nylon tubing), enabling high performance micro catheters.

  • Both braided & coiled configurations
  • Radiopaque marker bands
  • Atraumatic tips
  • Printed shafts
  • Torque enhancements
  • Super-lubricious engineered resin 

 

Low Profile Delivery Systems

The growing trend in intravascular reconstruction is the continued thinning of catheter walls and devices with ultra-low profiles. Thin-wall high pressure dilation balloons; sub-ultra-thin-wall extruded tubing; embedded ultrafine wire-reinforced tubing; low-profile steerable tips, microcatheters with ultrathin-coat PTFE lubricious inner liners combined with hydrophilic lubricious coatings to support improved vascular device delivery and the adoption of radial (beginning at the wrist) versus femoral access points.
