Lenzing PROFILEN® PTFE film and tapes – the biocompatible barrier
The attractive core properties of PROFILEN® PTFE yarns have been successfully used and appreciated for many years in various fields of medical technology and the corresponding products. The strong demand impressively showed us the great potential of PTFE. And so, we also included the precursor product, PTFE film, in our product range. Since then, our medical film has found preferred use in products that must not adhere or fuse with human tissue.
You too can rely on Lenzing PROFILEN® PTFE film and tapes for your medical products! The extremely variable high-performance plastic proves unrivaled in a wide range of medical products – from biocompatible textiles to implants, vascular prostheses, membranes, etc. PTFE film owes this versatility to its special material properties, which can be influenced as required, its technically diverse processing options and its long service life. PTFE film and tapes are extremely chemically resistant and well tolerated.
The most outstanding property of this medical film, however, is its smooth, anti-adhesive surface. This reduces displacement forces during surgery, the undesirable adhesion of biofilms and the formation of blood clots. In addition, PTFE film can be bonded to other components such as in artificial heart valves, endoscopes, stents, etc. by means of bonding or welding.
You need physiologically safe PTFE film for your high quality medical product? Our medical grade film and medical grade tapes open up a wide range of creative design options for you. We produce PTFE films in various thicknesses and different densities (0.4 to 1.1 g/cm³). Strength and elongation can also be varied.
Whatever your company’s field of activity, medical grade PTFE film from Lenzing Plastics is a material that will leave a lasting mark on your products, raise them to a whole new level of quality and quickly make them popular with your target group.
We would be pleased to develop for you or together with you a medical film or corresponding tapes that will meet, if not exceed, the requirements of your product. In all likelihood, the appropriate PTFE foil is already in our portfolio or we will design it specifically for you.
