Heat Shrink Technology Advancements

The new thin-walled FEP, when used in interventional procedures, effectively delivers a guidewire. Junkosha's thin-walled FEP HST technology is a technique for interventional treatment with a guidewire, and the use of a low coefficient of friction on the FEP surface is necessary. Junkosha's thin-walled FEP HST has a shrinkage ratio of 1.25:1 and a wall thickness of 0.0025", providing guidewire manufacturers with a thin, robust, consistent solution that provides a convincing alternative. Coating or other surface treatment methods. A thin repair wall ensures that the properties of the underlying material are not affected.


We have a strong tradition in materials science and fluoropolymers, which means our solutions are at the forefront. With our thin-walled FEP HST products, we have created a heat-shrink tubing solution to meet the stringent requirements of manufacturers when designing rail wires, which require a color, durable surface.


Our primary goal is to meet the unmet needs of our customers through technological innovation. As part of this, we are being asked to find solutions that will take the “small but thin” problem to the next level. As medical professionals continue to break through the requirements of interventional technology, we are the first to use our core materials technology to design solutions that are difficult for our competitors to replicate.


The medical technology department is moving at a rapid pace, which is a challenge for equipment engineers who need to make longer guidewires with low-friction surfaces so that clinicians can walk through the blood vessels and reach previously unreachable target area. In the future, it is expected that these types of miniaturization, the use of thinner wire guide solutions will be increasingly used, as manufacturers are being asked to provide solutions that can redefine the possibilities through this technology.
