Multi Durometer Tubing

Multi-Durometer Tubing Dual Durometer Tubing

New England Catheter’s assembly abilities coupled with our comprehensive extrusion capabilities enable the delivery of reinforced multi-durometer custom products. Producing tubes with multi-durometer sections with the addition of stainless steel braids or spiral reinforcements allows for varied kink resistance, flexibility and torque response over the length of one piece. This innovative process accompanied with braid reinforcement can produce a tube that has a stiff body section with a more flexible distal section while still maintaining a high torque response throughout the entire tube.  

Listed below are some general guidelines of our capabilities, however each order we process is custom designed and manufactured so please contact us today to get started on your project!
