Zeus’ groundbreaking new FluoroPEELZ® peelable heat shrink offers medical device manufacturers a revolutionary way to increase yields and improve safety for catheter construction. With its fully encapsulated blade, our FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture allows you to safely create a precise linear tear to quickly and easily peel away the heat shrink. Zeus FluoroPEELZ® is Class VI medical grade approved.
You asked us for a peelable heat shrink – we delivered!
Catheter construction is a delicate process with no room for error. The final step of removing the recovered FEP heat shrink from over the outer shaft is often the most critical and laborious. Now, with the introduction of Zeus FluoroPEELZ® peelable heat shrink, one simple linear tear is all it takes. Just slit the end of the heat shrink with the FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture, peel it back, and move on!
FluoroPEELZ® peelable heat shrink accelerates production, increases yield, and improves safety.
Are you challenged with cost reductions? Are you seeking new and innovative ways to increase yields? Are you concerned with workers’ safety?
Now, with the new and improved FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture, the cutting blade is fully encapsulated within a metal housing. This cutting device precisely locates the recovered FluoroPEELZ® heat shrink within the device to make the initial cut. No guess work! The FluoroPEELZ® is exactly cut in the middle allowing you to begin peeling away the FluoroPEELZ® layer from the catheter.
FluoroPEELZ® brings simplicity to a complex process saving you both time and money
With the FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture, operators can quickly and easily peel FluoroPEELZ® heat shrink away improving efficiencies and work place safety. Customers using FluoroPEELZ® report reduced downstream processing, increased yields, and minimal scrap – all of which provide cost savings.
FluoroPEELZ® offers the highest optical clarity on the market
FluoroPEELZ® is the most translucent peelable heat shrink available allowing operators to visually inspect the construction during the reflow process. Inspection performed at the time of reflow eliminates guesswork and speeds the production process. In addition to its clarity, FluoroPEELZ® actually enhances reflow ability. Once removed, FluoroPEELZ® produces a smooth and void-free exterior finish.
FluoroPEELZ® delivers reliable results
With dwell times and recovery temperatures consistent with traditional FEP heat shrink, FluoroPEELZ® delivers fast and reliable results with the quality and performance you have come to expect from Zeus.
Who We Work With
Zeus partners with everyone. Whether you are in academia or associated with a global medical device and contract manufacturer or launching an entrepreneurial start-up, your project will be treated as top priority and receive our full attention.
Catheter Construction – Used over nylon or Pebax® jacketing during catheter construction, Zeus FluoroPEELZ® peelable heat shrink encapsulates the underlying jacketing while heat is applied to the outer FluoroPEELZ® layer. The applied heat also melts the underlying jacketing material allowing the jacket to reflow into the catheter braiding thus bonding the catheter base liner, braiding, and jacketing together. Once the jacket material has cured, the recovered FluoroPEELZ® top layer is removed beginning with the FluoroPEELZ® slit fixture.
