Catheters / IVs
Multiple indwelling catheter and IV applications are a primary market for Lubrizol’s engineered polymers due to their ability to maintain comfort while entering the body and then softening after placement. Our polymers are known to maintain strength, biocompatibility, biostability and elasticity throughout their use.
Applications within the catheters and IVs include:
- Cardiovascular Access Devices (central vein, ports and PICCs)
- Medical Balloons
- Any catheters used in urology, neurology, cardiology and gastroenterology
