A method of producing laminated inflatable, substantially inextensible expander members having composite properties enhancing their use on intravascular catheters, such as angioplasty catheters is described. Diverse polymeric compounds of differing properties are coextruded to create a multilayer parison (40). The parison (40) is subsequently drawn and expanded in a blow molding operation to yield an expander member exhibiting enhanced properties including lubricity, burst strength, limited radial expansion, bondability, and rupture characteristics.

Title
Multilayer extrusion as process for making angioplasty balloons.
