HTBM100 medical grade heat shrink tubing is manufactured from a PVDF material. This semi-rigid tubing offers superior electrical, chemical, cut-through and abrasion resistance, whilst being highly flexible and extremely lubricious.
HTBM100 is qualified to the stringent requirements of USP Class VI, and as such is approved for use ‘in-body’, making it ideal for medical and surgical devices such as Endoscopes and electrotomes. The product can be sterialsed using either Gamma or ETO methods and has a continuous operating temperature of 175°C .
