Vascutek - World Class Medical Textiles
With 30 years of experience in medical textile technology, our people deliver quality products to our OEM partners
In our specially designed textile department, a dedicated team of experts convert polyester yarn into a wide variety of fabrics.
Vascutek has the capability of converting the yarn either by knitting or weaving on high precision machines.
The process selected is dependent on your product's requirements and its final application. The fabric can be produced in flat or tubular form.
Several products have already been developed in conjunction with worldwide OEM partners, including heart valve conduits, heart valve sewing cuff fabric, a pessary retrieval system, drug pump pouches, heart assist pump conduits and endovascular grafts.
If required, further processing of the fabric can be performed in the class 7 cleanroom facility.
Since 1999, Vascutek has been manufacturing ePTFE vascular prostheses. The custom built, state of the art facility utilises the very latest in PTFE manufacturing technology.
Advanced computer controlled manufacturing techniques and monitoring systems ensure that product of an exacting level of consistency and quality is achieved.
The sintering process, an integral part of the manufacturing procedure whereby the ePTFE is heated and stabilised, features a computer controlled innovative conveyor oven, ensuring uniformity of working temperatures and product consistency.
Vascutek has developed the continuous conveyor sintering process where the ePTFE passes through a high temperature zone that causes the molecules to coalesce.
Vascutek offer customised ePTFE products for a range of applications up to 10mm internal diameter.
