New Microminiature Round Cable For Medical Applications

W. L. Gore & Associates
Elkton, Md. (June 2007) W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) launches an enhanced microminiature round cable for medical applications. When size and electrical integrity is critical, GORE™ Microminiature Round Cable provides one of the smallest, most durable medical cable solutions.

A variety of medical devices can benefit from GORE™ Microminiature Round Cable including electrophysiology products and small diameter flexible endoscopes, where real-estate is a premium and reliability is paramount.

Through the use of GORE™ High Strength Toughened Fluoropolymer (HSTF) and low dielectric constant expanded PTFE (ePTFE) material, GORE™ Microminiature Round Cable maintains its performance through device flexure, abrasion during routing or tracking and sterilization. GORE™ HSTF material is an advanced biocompatible dielectric material that produces superior mechanical and electrical properties. Mechanical property benefits include increased scrape abrasion resistance, cut-through resistance, and improved pinhole free performance in ultra-thin profiles.
