Bump, taper, and draw down tubes vary in diameter over the length of the extrusion. These extrusions are commonly used when different functionality is required at the proximal and distal end of a catheter or device. Typically the smaller diameter is inserted into the body and larger diameter is connected to a device or machine. Bump extrusions are commonly used in:
Vascular Access Catheters
Delivery Catheters & Shafts
Biomerics has the capability to vary the number and size of bumps along the length of the extrusion, as well as the wall thickness between the inside and outside diameters. Combined with our multilayer and multi-lumen technologies, the potential number of configurations is endless.
Bump tubes vary in diameter over the length of an extrusion.
Commonly used in various access catheters and intravenous devices.
We can vary the number and size of bumps as well as the extrusion wall thickness.
