Lubrizol’s Medical & HealthCare is one of the technology leaders for resins in extruded medical tubing for a wide variety of applications which include catheters, high pressure tubing, access tubing and feeding tubes. All tubing is produced on a custom order basis to ensure exact customer dimensions and configuration and is subject to strict quality control criteria at each stage of production. Our manufacturing facility is ISO 9001 certified for the manufacture of polymers for medical and specialized engineering applications.
Lubrizol provides polyurethanes that allow extremely small diameters (.005 in.) and very complex lumen configurations to be extruded. Specialty operations, such as radiopaque stripe co-extrusion, specific radiopaque loadings or exact color matching allows manufacturers to order tubing that meets their desired specifications.
