Anomet’s radiopaque-clad wire enhances the clarity and visibility of stents and wire under fluoroscopy and can be manufactured with different degrees of visibility by modifying the alloy composition and cladding thickness. Suitable for use with stents, guide wires, and related devices, this clad composite wire is less expensive than solid wire with marker bands and can be manufactured to precise OEM specifications and supplied on spools. Available in sizes from from 0.05 mm to 1.52 mm O.D., the wire can incorporate gold, platinum-iridium, tantalum, tantalum-tungsten, and similar alloys bonded to high strength wires such as 316LVM stainless steel, nitinol, and MP35N with 2% or more cladding thickness. Two popular wire examples are Tantalum cored stainless steel and Gold clad nitinol. Additionally, the medical-grade wires will not flake, blister, or delaminate.
