Putnam Plastics has developed an  advanced tri-layer tubing technology that significantly improves tensile and burst strength, while reducing elongation. Super-Tri™ tubing is made with a proprietary extrusion process and aids in the prevention of wire lock-up in catheters where guidewires are used.

Super-Tri tri-layer tubing technology utilizes the same material combination as traditional tri-layer tubing while providing superior performance characteristics. As the requirements for medical catheters and devices evolve, the need for innovative extrusion solutions has never been greater. For example, Super-Tri tubing assists in issues that have evolved from higher rated burst pressure balloons catheters. Compared to traditional tri-layer tubing, Super-Tri tubing has decreased elongation by 750% and increased burst strength by 98%. This makes this tubing technology ideal for balloon catheters requiring high pressure balloons. The significant reduction in the elongation and increased tensile strength considerably decrease the potential for guidewire lock-up. In addition, the Super-Tri tubing technology meets the same sizing, tolerances, and material configurations as traditional tri-layer tubing.
