WAYNE, Pa.—Tekni-Plex China will show its latest solutions for drug delivery, intravenous therapy and interventional catheters at Medtec China, Sept. 25-27 in Shanghai.
Tekni-Plex China will be exhibiting at Hall 2, Booth A002, according to a company news release.
"Precision extruded silicone, thermoplastic and thermoplastic elastomer tubing is critical for the most advanced medical devices," said Michael Luo, general manager for Tekni-Plex China. "The China medical market is growing rapidly, and sourcing high tolerance tubing from local suppliers is increasingly important."
Promoted products will include silicone tubing used for patient-controlled analgesia pumps and peristaltic pumps for IV therapy. Its medical-grade silicone tubing is manufactured in a clean-room environment in Suzhou, China, in sizes with inside diameters ranging from 0.008 to 0.984 inches and wall thickness from 0.004 to 0.118 inches. The tubes, Tekni-Plex said, are available at tolerances as low as +/- 0.001 inch.
The company also will present melt-extruded tubing used for endovascular and other IV applications, including recently developed three-layer PEBA/bond/PE tubing for rapid-exchange balloon catheters. Radiopague striped thermoplastic polyurethane used for IV cannulas also will be promoted.
