silicone tubing

Made in USA

 Silicone Tubing
  • Made from FDA-sanctioned ingredients
  • Able to resist extreme temperature variation: -100°F to 500°F[U]
  • Translucent natural color for visual contact with the flow
  • Resilient, stretchable, and resistant to compression set
  • Odorless, tasteless, and inert
  • Good electrical and weatherability properties — resists U.V., ozone, gases, and moisture
  • Certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF-51) for food equipment materials[U]

NSF certified

Recommended Fittings & Clamps
  Notes

The most outstanding property of SILCON silicone tubing is its resistance to temperature extremes. These, plus its good electrical properties coupled with the ability to self-extinguish, makes SILCON an excellent choice for appliance and computer applications.

Peroxide-cured SILCON tubing contains no sulphur or other acid-producing chemicals, thereby eliminating the possibility of staining, corroding, or deteriorating other materials it contacts. It is extremely resistant to ozone and U.V. over long time periods.

Care is recommended in the selection of fittings and clamps for SILCON as sharp barbs or unlined metal clamps could tear into the wall and possibly cause a failure.

SILCON is not recommended for implantable or in-body uses or for continuous steam applications.

SILCON silicone tubing may be low pressure steam sterilized in-line or autoclaved at up to 250F in a normal autoclaving cycle. However, if exposed to repeated steam sterilization or long-term high temperature or pressure, silicone will eventually relax and become gummy. It should then be replaced.

Custom sizes, colors, shapes, and other durometers are available through minimum order. Repetitive cutting, fabrication, and overbraiding (for higher pressure capability -- also see SILBRADE® ) are all available. Platinum-cured silicone, medical grade SILCON MED-X & SILBRADE MED-X are also available. Samples of stock material are available upon request.
