The Technological Wonders Of Clear Plastic Tube

Over the last few years, the need has grown for very small diameter, Clear Plastic Tube that can withstand chemical and temperature extremes. The main markets needing this type of technological miracle were the medical, industrial, laboratory, pharmaceutical, semiconductor, and home health care industries, all of whom were hard pressed to find affordable microscopic bored tubing for products requiring fine control or protective insulation. Originally created and produced in Europe, the products are still produced today in three plants and sold around the world. Perfect for medical, laboratory, and pharmaceutical needs, this tubing caught on quickly in applications for laboratory testing, intravenous solution delivery, and arterial infusion, primarily because the material is so resistant to outside forces.

No matter what use it is put to, the plastic remains untouched. Recently, the semiconductor industry found success in using it as insulating material for delicate circuitry, and the burgeoning home health care field was expanded by incorporating this technology into home IV and arterial infusion kits. One of the things that make this product so popular is its customization. It can be produced with any bore size possible, and has even been made with a bore diameter of less than that of a human hair. It can be produced in a way that makes it lightweight and flexible for installation in machinery, and still be made as rigid as necessary for suction devices and semiconductor insulation. The formulation leaves the material completely unaffected by blood, chemotherapy solutions, acids, caustic liquids, gases or other chemical compounds. It is also heat and temperature resistant, which makes it a wonderful carrier material and insulator for small electrical circuits everywhere. And, best of all, it can be attached to filters and links quickly, yet remains rigid enough to resist wear and tear, breaks and punctures from constant use and machine stress.

In medical and pharmaceutical applications, this tubing meets all ISO requirements for biocompatibility, and is considered to be non-toxic, non-hemolytic, and non-pyrogenic in nature. This makes it perfect for use in dialysis machines, chemotherapy applications, catheters and more recently for use in at-home and hospital IV procedures. It has also found a home as insulating material in medical machines like probes, fiber optics, IV drip machines, balloon angioplasty and stent delivery devices. It can easily be sterilized an unlimited number of times, by germicides, saline solutions and even in gas sterilizers. Its customized rigidity makes it perfect for the transfer and drawing of blood, blood gases, and other chemicals, while its smooth bore precludes the buildup of any contaminants that may alter the results of laboratory tests it is used in.
