Advantages of fluoropolymer medical materials

Fluoropolymer materials play an important role in medical market, due to their excellent properties such as surface energy, biological stability, mechanical property, chemical resistance. In medical industry, fluoropolymer materials usually can be used as catheters, probes, cardiovascular grafts, heart patches, ligaments for knees, sutures, blood filters, tubings, dental floss, barrier packaging films for drugs.

Properties benefit to medical applications

Low friction


Chemically inert


Non Porous


Same refractive index as water

Can be safely autoclaved or subjected to irradiation


  • Our fluoroplastic parts are designed for blood sampling equipment, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) systems, anesthesia equipment, etc.
  • Tube/Hose are designed for medical laboratory equipment.
  • Heat shrink probe covers find use in encapsulating temperature and microwave sensor devices.
  • Since PTFE is highly inert and nontoxic, it finds use in medical applications such as cardiovascular grafts, heart patches, and ligaments for knees.
  • PCTFE films can be laminated to a variety of substrates, such as PVC, polyethylene-terephtalate glycol (PETG), amorphous polyethylene terephtalate (APET), or polypropylene (PP), which can be used for packaging of drugs, and for medical devices, where there are high moisture barrier demands.
  • PTFE or blends of PTFE and PFA or PTFE and FEP are used to coat for medical devices.
  • We create solutions to medical device manufacturers, including gas bags, small bore tubing, fluid containment bags and self-supporting structures for water and blood purification.
  • In order to meet the growing demand for product purity, cleanability, durability and lower maintenance costs, helping many pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers need to flexibly produce a variety of products, fluoropolymer coatings can play a vital role effect.
