Silicone Extrusions – Our GeoTrans® Process Extrusions
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions patented GeoTrans® processes are synonymous with silicone extrusion innovation. GeoTrans® pioneered the technology of movable die and mandrels allowing us to produce tubes with transitional geometry.
Here are just some of the extruded designs possible with our patented GeoTrans® technology:
GeoTrans® Extruded Balloon
Silicone balloons are common to many medical devices. A preformed balloon segment is typically bonded to a catheter shaft at a position where a small opening allows inflation by saline or air. GeoTrans® balloons are formed in a single extrusion step as an integral part of a catheter shaft eliminating significant costs associated with secondary operations and inspections. We can produce GeoTrans® balloons in a range of sizes and inflation pressures to fit your requirements.
GeoTrans® Single to Multi-Lumen
With our GeoTrans® lumen transition technology, we produce tubes in which the single lumen tube transitions into a multi-lumen tube.
GeoTrans® Stop Lumen
Our Geo-Trans® Stop Lumen Tubing eliminates the need for secondary operations such as applying a room temperature vulcanized silicone plug to close the lumen. Our single or multiple lumen tube can have one or more lumens stop and restart, depending on requirements.
GeoTrans® Bump Tapered Tubing
Our Bump or Tapered GeoTrans® tubing is used for applications requiring a variable outer diameter and either a constant or variable inner diameter. The variations and applications are endless. The bump/tapered tubing can be used for a catheter where the intravenous section is smaller, minimizing disruption in blood flow.
GeoTrans® Advanced Wound Drain Technology
GeoTrans® wound drains set the industry standards for function and reliability. Using patented GeoTrans® processes, we manufacture and stocks various sizes of both the 4 channel and saw-tooth design.
