Welch Fluorocarbon’s thermoforming process can deliver extremely thin wall thicknesses down to approximately 1.0mil (.001”). Components with such thin walls are in high demand for applications where space is at a premium, such as implantable medical devices (pacemakers, implantable cardiac defibrillators, cochlear implants, etc). The following is a list of distinctive solutions that Welch Fluorocarbon’s thermoformed components can offer to the medical device industry:

  • Insulation
    Implantable medical device components for battery and capacitor insulation. An excellent pinhole free alternative to Parylene Coatings.
  • Chemical Resistance
    For applications that require a material that can stand up to the harshest environments.
  • Temperature Resistance
    Perfect for applications that require high maximum use temperatures. An excellent alternative or replacement for polyimide tapes, which are labor intensive.
  • Inertness 
    For applications that require a non-reactive material
  • Releasability
