W. L. Gore & Associates launched an enhanced microminiature round cable for medical applications that include electrophysiology products and small diameter flexible endoscopes. Through the use of proprietary high strength toughened fluoropolymer (HSTF) and low dielectric constant expanded PTFE (ePTFE) material, this cable maintains its performance through device flexure, abrasion during routing, or tracking and sterilization. The cable is made of a biocompatible dielectric material that produces optimal mechanical and electrical properties with benefits that include increased scrape abrasion resistance, cut-through resistance and pinhole-free performance in ultra-thin profiles.
