Mechanical Performance

Mechanical Performance | Environmental testingOutlined below is a list of the tests Anecto provides to ensure the mechanical integrity of a product.

All of the tests listed are available for a wide range of catheters and wires.

Catheter Tensile Test

  • A measurement of the tensile strength and elongation of the catheter joints and components.
  • We use Zwick tensile test systems equipped with various load cells from 10N to 10kN.
  • Tests performed to ISO standards or customer defined requirements.

Micro Tensile Test

  • Tensile test set-up within Scanning Electron Microscope chamber. The tester is capable of measuring the tensile strength of small section samples.
  • Tests performed to ISO standards or customer defined requirements.

Catheter Kink Resistance Test

  • The ability to maintain cross sectional profile during deformation.
  • Equipment: 3 point and 4 point bending jig inserted into Zwick tensile tester with 37°C water bath facilities.
  • For 3 point bend, ASTM F2606 “Standard Guide for Three-Point Bending of Balloon Vascular Stents and Stent Systems” is used.
