Notes

The construction of SILBRADE enables silicone tubing to handle increased pressure applications. SILBRADE offers outstanding resistance to temperature extremes and is made from raw materials that meet FDA requirements.

 

The flexible design and construction of SILBRADE also allows excellent bend radii and permits installation in restricted spaces without impeding flow.

 

SILBRADE, a peroxide-cured product, contains no sulfur or other acid-producing chemicals thereby eliminating the possibility of staining, corroding, or deteriorating other materials it contacts. It is also resistant to ozone and UV over long time periods.

Care is recommended in the selection of fittings and clamps, as sharp barbed fittings or unlined metal clamps could tear into the hose wall and possibly cause a failure, especially at elevated pressures.

 

^SILBRADE may be low pressure steam sterilized in-line or autoclaved at up to 250°F 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.

 

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

Cut coils are available; charges do apply — call for details.
Add length suffix to part number when ordering.
Example: 100 ft. of 1/8″ I.D. x .365″ O.D. tubing is part number 290 0072-100.
Working pressures are calculated from burst testing using a 3:1 safety factor. Application testing is recommended.
ID is the critical dimension for fittings application.
