Extruded Tubing

Microbore & Multilumen Extrusion

We can extrude tubing with high-performance materials, thin walls, tight tolerances, and complex geometries, whether you’re looking for quick-turn prototypes or full-scale production.

Microbore & Thin-Wall Tubing

Our Apollo® Sub-Ultra-Thin-Wall Tubing offers tight tolerances with walls as thin as 0.0005" (0.0127 mm).

Capabilities

  • Complex geometries
  • Up to 20 lumens
  • 3- to 5-day lead time (single lumen)
  • 7- to 10-day lead time (multilumen)

Single & Multilumen Tubing

Single multilumen extrusion by SPG

Materials

  • Standard materials including Pebax®, nylon, polyurethane and other thermoplastic elastomers
  • Engineered materials including PEEK, fluoropolymers, and additives and fillers for improved strength, lubricity, and radiopacity

Core Mandrel (Solid Rod Extrusion)

Core mandrel by SPG

Used as a manufacturing aid for braid- or coil-reinforced catheter tubing, our core mandrels feature extremely tight tolerances to maintain consistent diameter and roundness for catheter manufacturing, as well as a smooth surface for easy removal.

Material Options

  • Premium plain acetal mandrel
  • Premium acetal blend with silicone surface mandrel
  • Acetal or silicone acetal (small OD) with stainless steel wire reinforcing
  • Economy version
