Fluoropolymers in Medical Catheters

Fluoropolymers are commonly used for the construction of medical catheters.  Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is the material of choice for low friction, inner liners of guide catheters used in cardiology and neurology.  Fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) is used for vascular access sheaths and shrink tubing.
