DESIGN SAFETY
INTO YOUR PRACTICE

PolyMed Composite Medical Tubing features extreme rigidity and outstanding dielectric insulation.

Composite tubing has a more-than-twenty-year track record of success in the operating room. Polygon’s dedicated medical engineering team uses its extensive knowledge and experience in composite science to assist you in determining the best manufacturing process, fiber architecture, resin formulations and finishing to produce the ideal product for your medical application.

Potential Applications

  • Insulated tubing for electrosurgical devices
  • Robotic surgery, such as articulating instrument shafts, forceps, cutters, etc.
  • Cannula for laparoscopic and endoscopic devices
  • Material delivery devices such as wound healing and suction irrigation
  • Oncology applications such as minimally invasive procedures and brachytherapy applicators

PolyMed composite medical tubing provides these benefits:

  • Strong, rigid structure
  • Non-conductive properties
  • Custom fabrication capabilities
  • Lightweight materials
  • Sterilization via standard procedures
  • Biocompatible materials
  • Custom marking and coating capabilities
