Zeus is the world's leading polymer extrusion manufacturer and material science innovator for the medical device industry. We specialize in precision extrusions of PTFE, FEP, PEEK, PFA, ETFE, PVDF, bioabsorbable polymers and other engineered plastics. Our product line includes heat shrinks, FluoroPEELZ™ Peelable Heat Shrink, PEEKshrink®, thin-walled Sub-Lite-Wall®, Absorv® bioabsorbables, Aeos® ePTFE, drawn fiber, Bioweb™ electrospun composites and multi-lumen tubing. Zeus also offers a full array of Optimized Tubing Solutions, including flaring, flanging, pad printing, engineered surface, etching and more. Zeus collaborates with customers to design, engineer and produce fluoropolymer and specialized plastic tubing. These extrusions deliver the material properties and exceptionally tight tolerances required for today's medical device design. Recognizing the ever-changing dynamics of the industry, our team always looks to the future. With the emergence of biomaterials, Zeus expanded our processing capabilities to develop the industry's most advanced bioabsorbable polymers. Now, our implantable technologies fuel next-generation novel devices and therapies from targeted drug delivery to wound closure and stent encapsulation. Catheter manufacturers have continuously pursued methods to easily remove heat shrink after reflow. Zeus responded with FluoroPEELZ™, an optically clear peelable heat shrink that increases yields, improves workplace safety and produces a smooth surface finish. These types of material breakthroughs eliminate barriers to ingenuity and afford our customers the opportunity to focus solely on their designs. However, Zeus doesn't stop at polymer science innovation; we are changing the way in which you prototype. In 2015, Zeus launched our Virtual Sample Locker (VSL) program. This complimentary online service provides customers with constant access to and swift delivery of catheter componentry samples. VSL enables innovators to rapidly prototype their designs without delay. Headquartered in Orangeburg, S.C., Zeus employs approximately 1,200 people and operates multiple facilities in North America and internationally guaranteeing a stable source of supply anywhere in the world.

The precisely controlled degradation of Zeus Absorv® bioabsorbables allows the material to safely disappear in the body after its intended use. THE SOuRCE BOOK | 2015 emdt.co.uk 122
