The structure of ePTFE is composed of a number of solid nodes interconnected by a matrix of very thin fibrils. The spacing between nodes and fibrils – which can be manipulated during extrusion – allows the material to excel in applications requiring microporous qualities.
We continue to assist medical device engineers in bringing their design concepts and ideas to reality. We work closely with numerous manufacturers to assist them confidentially in the development of new products and technology. We also actively engage in many other arenas to facilitate and support advancements for our non-medical and industrial partners.
Through extensive investments in research and development, Eco has advanced a wide range of ePTFE processing capabilities. Our ability to control broad aspects of the manufacturing process allows us to shape the physical and mechanical properties of ePTFE. The result is a unique material composed of a number of solid nodes interconnected by a matrix of thin fibrils. This matrix is what allows our ePTFE to excel in such diverse applications as sutures to desiccant packaging where microporous qualities are especially important.
