Platinum-Cured Silicone Tubing Offers Purity for Fluid Transfer
Silcon® Med-X silicone tubing and reinforced hose is ideally suited for applications in the medical, biomedical, pharmaceutical, laboratory, surgical, food, beverage, and health and beauty industries. Company produces both peroxide and platinum cured silicone tubing. The platinum-cured version offers the fewest number of extractables, which are compounds that can be drawn out of tubing and adversely affect the fluid flowing within. It also contains no plasticizers that can leach out and cause flow contamination or tube hardening. Using purer tubing in processing and transfer applications means the end product is purer as well. The elastomer used in Silcon Med-X meets USP (United States Pharmacopoeia) Class VI requirements, and the tubing is produced in a controlled environment. Silcon Med-X is soft, pliable, and will not support bacteria growth. It is supplied in individual, heat-sealed polybags.
