Balloon Tubing


Coronary, Peripheral, Neurovascular and Nonvascular

Lubrizol Life Science Health’s precision medical extrusion solutions optimize the clinical outcome of thermoplastic balloon tubing for the medical device industry.


Dilatation, Drug and Device Delivery, Occlusion and More

LLS Health’s balloon tubing produces high-yielding medical device balloons with uniform wall thickness, excellent concentricity, and optically clear and repeatable mechanical properties necessary for critical clinical applications. We provide medical device design assistance to ensure optimal clinical outcome.


Extrusion Carefully Stressed to Support the Introduction of a Balloon Feature

LLS Health’s fully integrated facility affords tight manufacturing controls for the critical parameters necessary to ensure optimal balloon performance.


Extruded, Tested and Inspected for Quality

LLS Health controls each step in manufacturing high-yield balloon tubing. We extrude high-quality and highly concentric tubing that meets specific dimensional and cosmetic requirements. LLS Health controls important mechanicals such as elongation and tests the tubing to ensure that required functional properties are met and defects are eliminated. After extrusion, our trained inspectors inspect the tubing to ensure quality.


High-Quality Balloon Tubing, Thin Walls and High Burst Pressures

LLS Health’s experienced team ensures that the tubing adheres to customer-specified dimensional and mechanical requirements. Our expertise includes:
