Zeus: High-Performance Extruded Tubing, Heat Shrink Tubing and Monofilaments

Zeus is a leader in the design and production of high-performance polymer extrusions, as well as an innovator of post-production finishing and strategic supply initiatives. Zeus is the supplier of choice for precision high-performance extruded tubing, heat shrink tubing and monofilaments. We use a wide array of materials during the design and production process, and can customize our products to meet customers’ needs.

Tubing solutions for specialized performance requirements

Product design engineers look to Zeus for innovative tubing solutions that meet the performance requirements of an increasingly specialized world, such as PTFE Sub-Lite-Wall® tubing for catheter liners, fluoropolymer heat shrink for electrical and mechanical applications, high purity tubing for critical fluid handling and multi-lumen tubing for catheters and high-performance data cables.

Collaborative polymer research and development

More than a component supplier, Zeus places a premium on close collaboration with customers through its research and development division. Our in-house R&D division partners with established companies and start-ups to develop the next generation of medical devices and therapies. Our focus is on the development and precision extrusion of advanced polymeric biomaterials, including Absorv® bioabsorbables and electrospun nano-fibrous materials. Enhanced properties of Absorv® bioabsorbables include modulated degradation rates, varying strengths and stiffness, and FDA-approval for medical devices.

Zeus Aeos® ePTFE products are made by expanding PTFE. This process creates microscopic pores in the material, imparting it with unique physical properties ideal in medical devices and other applications.
Zeus has independent quality control labs in each facility. We also maintain a rigorous ISO system, offer full product traceability, have Class 7 clean rooms, and offer medical-grade inspections.
Zeus manufactures heat shrink tubing in a variety of polymer resins. Provided in the expanded state, this product ‘shrink wraps’ intricate and irregular shapes with a simple application of heat.
Zeus Sub-Lite-Wall® tubing is PTFE tubing with wall thicknesses down to 0.001in and tolerances of +/- 0.0005in. It’s available in regular and extended micro miniature dimensions and in heat shrink versions.
Zeus offers an impressive array of optimized tubing solutions for advanced applications. We produce flared and flanged tubes, as well as a host of additional secondary services.

We are currently processing these materials and providing multiple extrusion forms, including shapes and special profiles. We are also able to process Aeos® ePTFE and electrospun polymers in a 5,000ft² Class 7 manufacturing environment, which allows for the development of these advanced materials in a more controlled environment. Our Class 7 Certified manufacturing capabilities include 10,000ft² of controlled environment operating under ISO 13485 guidelines.

Tubing for advanced applications

Zeus offers an impressive array of optimized tubing solutions for advanced applications. We produce flared and flanged tubes, as well as a host of additional secondary services, including drilling, etching, bump and draw down tubing, tipping, striping, scoring, and slitting. By having Zeus perform value-added services and operations, our customers have recognized improved yields and increased manufacturing efficiencies.
