Medical balloons are found across a wide range of medical devices, and are typically used for placement, delivery, centering, stent placement, occlusion, angioplasty, pressure monitoring, and many other medical applications. At Biomerics, we design and develop balloons and balloon catheters for the cardiovascular, GI, radiology, and urology markets.
We have the ability to manufacture medical balloons using blowing, casting, and RF welding. Our capabilities enable us to provide customers with non-compliant, semi-compliant, and compliant balloons in a wide range of material configurations. Through our vertically integrated structure and our expertise of polymers and extrusion, we can quickly and efficiently develop and test new balloons. We have the ability to custom design balloon properties based on materials, shape, and process, and we partner with customers to engineer the dimensional properties, compliance, chemical resistance, elasticity, surface finish, burst pressure, and tear strength of the final balloon.
Common balloon materials include:
- Polyurethane (Quadra™)
- Silicone Urethane Co-Polymers
