PEI offers high quality braided medical tubing that is available to meet your custom needs. Close tolerance, braid reinforced tubing is available in various configurations. We can braid using round or flat, single or double ended wires as small as .001". Various materials can be used to make the braided reinforced tubing including stainless steel, beryllium copper, and silver, as well as monofilament polymers. The braid can be wound with various pics per inch over many thermoplastic substrates such as nylons or polyurethanes. The benefits of braided catheter shaft are its high torque-ability and kink resistance.

By changing several factors during the braiding process, the characteristics of the tube can be altered to fit performance requirements. This braided catheter shaft tubing meets very high quality standards. After braiding is complete, a second extrusion is applied on top of the braided tube to encapsulate the braid and provide a smooth finish. Walls as thin as .007" can be achieved when a braid reinforced tube is required. Our braided catheter shaft can be spooled or cut to lengths depending on your requirements.

Custom extruded medical tubing, high quality standards, rapid order turnaround and a company-wide commitment to total satisfaction; it's the perfect combination. It's what you want, it's what you need! There are just a few of the reasons why Precision Extrusion, Inc. is the leader in the extruded thermoplastics industry.
