EXERA® precision grade ETFE polymer coating is a biocompatible coating added in an extrusion process when precise coating is required. It can be made in any wall thickness larger than 0,02 mm (0.0008”) where typical tolerances are ± 0,01mm (±0,0004”). Thinner wall thickness on request.
With our very good concentricity and dimensional control we can offer an extrusion process that’s not a common capability globally. Extruded coating with EXERA® precision grade ETFE polymer coating is offered on most metals over 0.07mm (0.003”) in diameter.
EXERA® precision grade ETFE polymer coating is a copolymer of ethylene and tetrafluoroethylene. ETFE resins has excellent resistance to abrasion and stress cracking.
EXERA® ETFE coating is used in extrusion straight tubing, coated wire and cable. It’s used in applications where electrical isolation at elevated temperatures, high degree of mechanical toughness, chemical inertness and/or low friction is required.
Typical applications include sensing leads, handheld devices, implants, robotic connectivity and other microelectronic medical devices since it can operate in wide-temperature ranges, has low water absorption and performs well with ETO (ethylene oxide), autoclave and gamma sterilizations.
