Polyimide

Hitachi High Performance Medical Solutions division does not currently offer polyimide tubing. However, we do have a strong network of resources that we will gladly refer you to if needed. We are hoping in the future to expand our offering to include polyimide.

Polyimide is a thermoset plastic that is ideal for particular high-performance medical applications requiring exceptional thermal stability, chemical resistance, and tensile strength. This makes the material an ideal choice for certain neurological devices, cardiovascular and intravascular catheters, and angioplasty procedures. It is particularly well known for its column strength making it very pushable while at the same time being both flexible and kink resistant.
