There are compliant and non compliant balloons & catheters available in the market for a wide range of medical applications. Varying from “standard” cylindrical balloons to cone shaped or dogbone shape balloons. Balloons are produced using a blow molding process from an extruded tube, so they typically have two balloon legs.

Our supplier TSS produces molded and extruded silicone balloons  & catheters , manufactured to your specification.
For other balloons, we can refer to other manufacturers.

 

Non-Compliant Dilatation Medical Balloons

  • Ultra high-strength, thin-walled
  • Fabricated from PET and Nylon
  • Used for PTCA, PTA, stent delivery, and other dilatation procedures
  • Compliance range: 0-10% (typical)
  • Optically clear (or colored)
  • Transmit light over very broad spectrum including ND: YAG lasers (PET)
  • Sizes range from 0.5 to 50 mm in diameter in virtually any working length
  • Burst pressures typically range from 15-400 psi (1-27 atm)

Remember: Not all Medical balloons are equal! It is not enough to produce thin-walled balloons. The wall thickness or thinness in the cone and neck area is just as important as a thin body, and in most circumstances, a thin neck and cone are critical for achieving low profile and flexibility (track ability).

 

Semi-Compliant Dilatation Medical Balloons

  • High-strength, thin-walled
  • Can be fabricated from PET, Nylon, Polyurethane, other thermoplastic elastomers
  • Used for PTCA, PTA, stent delivery, Kyphoplasty and other dilatation procedures
  • Compliance range: 10-20% (typical)
  • Sizes range from 0.5 to 50 mm in diameter in virtually any working length
  • Burst pressures typically range from 15-375 psi (1-25.5 atm)

 

Compliant Medical Balloons

  • Low pressure, thin and thick-walled
  • Fabricated from Polyurethane, Nylon elastomers, and other thermoplastic elastomers
  • Used for occlusion and anchoring in a variety of medical procedures
  • Compliance range: 20-100% or more
  • Sizes range from .5 to 60 mm in diameter in virtually any working length.
  • Burst pressures typically range from 0-30 psi (0-2 atm)
  • Typically used to replace latex and silicone balloons in critical high-value medical devices.

 

Silicone Compliant Medical Balloons

  • Low pressure , thin and thick walled and
  • Closed end balloons
  • Specific shapes and features achieved by molding
  • Compliant range over 100%
  • Via unique GEOTrans process thin wall balloon section can be extruded in line
