Apollo Medical Extrusion now offers single- and multi-lumen medical microtubing extruded from medical-grade Veradel HC A-301 NT polyethersulfone.
Apollo Medical Extrusion now offers single- and multi-lumen medical microtubing extruded from medical-grade Veradel HC A-301 NT polyethersulfone.

Solvay announced that Apollo Medical Extrusion now offers single- and multi-lumen medical microtubing extruded from its medical-grade Veradel HC A-301 NT polyethersulfone (PESU).

US-based Apollo fabricates a broad range of microtubes for catheter, endoscopy and laparoscopic instruments. According to the company, Veradel HC A-301 PESU helps to expands design options for microtube applications that demand a combination of rigidity, transparency and sterilization.

"We typically present the polymers in our portfolio as solutions, but we're introducing Veradel PESU to them as an idea generator," said Jonathan Jurgaitis, Senior Process Engineer at Apollo Medical Extrusion. "It's stronger than polycarbonate, more transparent than PEI and it enables multi-lumen microtube configurations that stainless steel cannot achieve."

One Apollo customer, Jurgaitis added, had been cutting stainless steel tubes and welding them together again to fabricate a component that Apollo was able extrude from Veradel HC A-301 PESU in one step, saving significant production time and expense.

Solvay is seeing increasing interest in Veradel HC A-301 PESU's potential for new medical device designs.

"While PESU is not intended to replace stainless steel in structural components, it introduces more flexible design options in applications where specifying stainless steel might over-engineer the part," said Jeff Hrivnak, Business Manager for Healthcare at Solvay's Specialty Polymers global business unit. "The material's high flow rate is well-suited for extruding thin-walled microtubes with complex geometries, and it offers the highest stiffness of all of Solvay's sulfone polymers."

Solvay’s medical-grade PESU polymer has been tested under ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards for cytotoxicity, irritation and acute systemic toxicity, and it is compatible with steam sterilization and chemical sterilants.
