The SolarFlex is made from cobalt chromium with only 10% nickel.
The SolarFlex is the only stent on the market to offer a custom design for each diameter ensuring uniformity of vessel wall support at each size throughout the range.
(data on file )
The flexibility of the SolarFlex has been compared to numerous market leaders and has shown to be the most flexible stent on the market.
The SolarFlex struts are thinner than those of most competitors (0.065mm / 0.0025").
2.5mm -> 0.84mm 2.75mm -> 0.88mm 3.0mm -> 0.90mm 3.5mm -> 0.98mm 4.0mm -> 1.05mm
A special post crimping process creates tiny cushions in the balloons material that aids the retention of the stent to the balloon and protects the stent from snaring.
