SILBRADE MEDICAL’s construction consists of a core of silicone elastomer, an open polyester braid reinforcing layer, and a cover layer of silicone elastomer. Good manufacturing procedures, including lot traceability, are applicable to all Class VI ingredients. SILBRADE MEDICAL is a peroxide-cured product.
The hose’s smooth bore, coupled with its resistance to allow material to adhere to the tube wall, facilitates easy cleaning and system purging.
SILBRADE MEDICAL is not recommended for implantable or in-body uses.
SILBRADE MEDICAL may be low pressure sterilized in-line or autoclaved up to 250°F in a normal autoclaving cycle. 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.
Care is recommended in the selection and application of fittings and clamps, as sharp barbed fittings or unlined clamps could tear into the hose wall and possibly cause a failure, especially at elevated pressures.
Peroxide-cured SILBRADE MEDICAL hose is supplied in individual, non-sterile, heat-sealed polybags and should be sterilized prior to use.
A platinum-cured, braid-reinforced medical grade silicone hose is available.Minimum quantities apply; call for price and delivery.
