All About Urethane Medical Balloons

Urethane Medical Balloon:

There are compatible and incompatible urethane balloons and catheters on the market for various medical applications.

Urethane Balloons are made through an extrusion tube molding process, so they usually have two legs attached to the balloon. You can find more information about urethane medical balloons via https://www.pobamedical.com.

Non-Compliant Dilatation Medical Balloons

Ultra high-strength, thin-walled

Fabricated from PET and Nylon

Used for PTCA, PTA, stent delivery, and other dilatation procedures

Compliance range: 0-10% (typical)

Optically clear (or colored)

Transmit light over a very broad spectrum including ND: YAG lasers (PET)

Sizes range from 0.5 to 50 mm in diameter in virtually any working length

The unique transition extrusion process allows thin-walled balloon parts to be extruded in a single row.

Burst pressures typically range from 15-400 psi (1-27 atm)

Not all Medical balloons are equal! It is not enough to produce thin-walled balloons. The wall thickness or thinness in the cone and neck area is just as important as a thin body, and in most circumstances, a thin neck and cone are critical for achieving low profile and flexibility (trackability).

Semi-Compliant Dilatation Medical Balloons

High-strength, thin-walled

Can be fabricated from PET, Nylon, Polyurethane, other thermoplastic elastomers

Used for PTCA, PTA, stent delivery, Kyphoplasty, and other dilatation procedures

Compliance range: 10-20% (typical)

Sizes range from 0.5 to 50 mm in diameter in virtually any working length

Burst pressures typically range from 15-375 psi (1-25.5 atm)
