Notes

The construction of SILBRADE PLATINUM involves a liner of silicone elastomer, an open polyester braid reinforcing layer, and a covering of silicone elastomer. The braid reinforcement allows for increased pressure usage over unreinforced silicone tubing. SILBRADE PLATINUM contains no plasticizers.

 

SILBRADE PLATINUM’s surface properties resist encrustation and will not support bacteria growth. It is nonreactive to body tissues and fluids.

 

Care is recommended in the selection and application of fittings and clamps as sharp barbed fittings or unlined metal clamps could tear into the hose wall, possibly leading to hose failure.

^SILBRADE PLATINUM should not be used for steam transfer or continuous steam operation. Steam-for-sterilization is the only recommended exposure to steam. If exposed to repeated steam sterilization or long-term high temperature or pressure, silicone will eventually become gummy. It should then be replaced.

 

SILBRADE PLATINUM is supplied in individual, heat-sealed polybags.

 

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