HRBM100 is a medical grade polyolefin heat shrink tubing especially suited for medical applications requiring lubricity, flexibility and excellent electrical properties The product is commonly used on surgical instruments such as electrotomes and endoscopes, but can also be used in other surgical devices where the properties required are similar.
HRBM100 tubing is a cost-effective alternative to FEP and 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 105°C .
