Avalon's unique capabilities and aggressive cost structure is their polymer solution casting™ technology, which utilizes liquid polymers throughout the manufacturing process resulting in unique and specialized designs unobtainable by extrusion technology. This technology offers the ability to add multiple components, varying wall thickness or diameter along the length of the device. With polymer solution casting the process provides the ability to embed components in virtually any configuration.
Avalon can offer single to multi-lumens, coil, braid or hypotube reinforcements, bump tubing, imaging targets, custom reinforced tips, holes or ports, lubricious surfaces all in a single piece construction. This can be manufactured to be kink resistant, flexible with variable column strength as needed.
