Marker Band Encapsulation

Marker Band Encapsulation

The need to prevent marker bands from moving on a catheter shaft has driven Pelham Plastics to develop a better solution, one that is robust, extremely precise and repeatable. Our proprietary RF process ensures the exact location of the band while fully encapsulating it within the wall thickness of the catheter shaft or sheath. One of the additional benefits of embedding the marker band is that there is nothing sharp on the ID or OD to interfere when passing a device through it or over it.

Contact Pelham Plastics with your project or send us your drawings for review to see if this process will enhance your product’s marketing potential.
