We Are Innovators – Like You
At Zeus, we have been providing performance polymer extrusions to the medical community for over 50 years. We were among the first extrusion companies to provide components for minimally invasive surgical techniques. From our earliest PTFE heat shrink extrusions to our MRI-compatible LCP monofilament, our catheter components continue to advance the industry. We have provided device makers with the thinnest PTFE catheter base liners so far with our StreamLiner™ XT. This product offers a maximum wall thickness of 0.01905 mm (0.00075″). Adding our latest innovation to this, our Tie Layer promotes catheter layer adhesion and increases liner-to-jacket bond strength by at least 2½×. To help finish your catheter construction, we also provide FEP heat shrink for use as a fusing sleeve. This optically clear product is now offered in a 2:1 shrink ratio eliminating the manual stretching normally needed for FEP heat shrinks with smaller ratios. FEP fusing sleeve leaves a smooth and even surface once it is cut and peeled away from the completed catheter construction.
We offer more than just catheter components for our medical customers. Addressing an enduring need, Zeus Aeos™ ePTFE Suture Monofilament (ASM) is a permanently implantable material that can be swaged onto needles up to a 1:1 needle-to-suture ratio. Provided unlicensed, ASM allows surgeons to create their own suture lines and raise their brand awareness while they raise their level of patient care. Similarly, Zeus Bioweb™ composites are biocompatible non-woven microporous materials produced from electrospun PTFE. Bioweb™ is designed for implantable applications. This product can attain thinner profiles than ePTFE making Bioweb™ very suited for small vasculatures. Bioweb™ can be used for encapsulations, stent coverings, coatings for 3-D substrates, and a variety of other implantable applications. Bioweb is available license-free through a technology transfer agreement allowing you to cover your own stents or other implantable devices.
During our company lifetime, Zeus has sought to maintain our reputation for innovation, collaboration, quality, and a "can do" attitude that has made our partners and us successful. Today, we have expanded our tradition of innovation to arenas beyond medical markets to include automotive, aerospace, energy – oil, gas, wind, and others – fibers optics, and fluid management. We continue to look ahead and anticipate the next generation of innovations in multiple markets. Let Zeus help you with your next prototyping project.
