What is this?


The external diameter of the tube is 1 mm.

Medical equipment is essential for supporting our health through its use in diagnosis or treatment of diseases. Our fluoropolymer tubes are used in medical equipment.
This photograph shows our “multi-lumen tube,” which is utilized in the medical equipment to examine internal organs and provide treatment without surgical procedure.
To reduce the burden on patients, medical equipment that enters the body is required to be as small and narrow as possible. This is also true for equipment parts. “Multi-lumen tubes” are fluoropolymer tubes with an external diameter of 1 mm and with multiple extremely minute holes. These multiple holes enable the equipment to have various functions within a limited space (diameter), such as the insertion of a wire or forceps and delivery of various types of liquid.
Approximately 60 years has passed since we began manufacturing fluoropolymer tubes. Among all tubes, manufacture of the “multi-lumen tube” introduced here requires not only cleanliness, but also extremely high quality, since it is used in medical equipment. We have developed technical innovation for steady progress and manufactured products that are narrower, thinner, and of extremely complicated shapes. We intend to keep making efforts in technical innovation, to enable us to help medical equipment manufacturers, physicians, and patients by supporting the advancement of medical equipment.

*Fluoropolymer: A polymer that is superior in heat resistance, chemical resistance, sliding performance, etc.
