Low Coefficient Wire


Custom tight-tolerance Teflon coated wire is manufactured, cut, and straightened in-house for optimum quality control. PTFE Natural Coated extrusion wire and forming mandrels are custom manufactured in 0.001 to 0.070-in. dia. sizes with final diameter tolerances of ±0.0001 to ±0.0005 in., depending upon diameter. Suitable for core wires, guidewires, stylets, and mandrels, these non-flaking coated wire products can be cut to length and straightened from 6 in. to 20 ft.


The wire and forming mandrels exhibit 0.05 coefficient of friction when tested in accordance with ASTM-1894.  Manufactured by a proprietary process to enhance the bonding surface and prevent flaking, this coated wire can be produced using stainless steel, nitinol, platinum, and silver-plated copper core wire.
