High BuRSTing Pressure, pliable and FLEXIBLE

VESTAMID® care for catheters

For catheter materials, mainly dilatation catheters, the mechanical properties are particularly important: The finished catheter must be easy to thread but must not buckle and never burst.

 VESTAMID® Care ME and VESTAMID® Care ML ensure that these requirements are satisfied through a combination of pliancy and flexibility with strength, toughness, and high bursting pressure.

High quality and low processing tolerances in the extrusion process make VESTAMID® Care ME and VESTAMID® ML excellent materials for catheter production. The specialty polyamide12 compounds and elastomers are especially resistant to chemicals, compatible with body fluids, and innocuous. They meet the medical products requirements of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the European Union, and can be sterilized by conventional methods.
