Coated Forming Mandrels

Description

A line of Teflon® coated forming mandrels for catheter fuse welding and tipping operations that are designed to optimize I.D. quality and production speed are available. Applied Plastics’ PTFE Natural® Forming Mandrels feature a smooth surface that provides a 0.5 dynamic coefficient of friction to prevent sticking, block tubing from shrinking, and simplify catheter removal.

Allowing over 25% elongation without flaking or failure, these extrusion mandrels are chemically inert and can operate up to 315°C (600°F) continuously. Offered in stainless steel or nitinol, Applied Plastics’ PTFE Natural® Forming Mandrels can be supplied precut in 0.005” to 1.0” dia. sizes with ±.0001” to ±.0005” tolerance, depending upon size.  PTFE Natural® grey is available with zero PFOA.  A proprietary surface preparation process before applying the PTFE Natural® coating assures the coating will not flake or crack. Applied Plastics’ PTFE Natural® Forming Mandrels are priced according to size and quantity.  Samples and quotations are available upon request.
