A new facility has recently been purchased for the production of ePTFE medical components. The property is located approximately 20 miles south of the Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
Tough and stiff yet flexible ePTFE-PTFE composite can be laser machined or razor carved to form inert medical components.plus
Phillips Scientific has the capability of manufacturing ePTFE suture thread as well as tipping and attaching the thread to eyeless needles.
The Nitinol wire stent (below) was fabricated for encapsulation with ePTFE (above). The superelastic properties of Nitinol allow the tube to be collapsed into a small diameter guide tube.
