AMI Medical Tubing 2019
November 5 - November 6
About the show
Medical Tubing 2019 will address the latest tubing and catheter developments for a wide range of medical requirements including intravenous, infusion, dialysis, respiratory, feeding, and drainage applications. It also examines the latest standards and certification requirements in this heavily regulated sector.
There are a huge variety of polymer options available for medical tubing production including flexible vinyl compounds, thermoplastic elastomers, thermoplastic urethanes, polyolefins, fluoropolymers, polyamides, polyimides, silicones, PEEK and PEBA. Inter-material competition is strong and selecting the optimum polymer grade to meet requirements such as flexibility, clarity, kink-resistance, dimensional stability, biocompatibility and cost-reduction can present a considerable challenge.
