LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer)
For intravascular and minimally invasive medical procedures, LCP monofilament provides superior performance as catheter reinforcement braiding. LCP fiber is particularly preferable for procedures which preclude the use of metals such as MRI. Using LCP monofilament braiding results in a catheter with excellent torquability, pushability, and deflectability at the distal end.
Our LCP fiber braiding can be used in lieu of metals such as stainless steel, nitinol, and tungsten that are typically used in catheter construction. Our LCP fiber possesses excellent tensile strength, is Class VI approved, and can be autoclaved.
