Notes

SILCON MEDICAL tubing meets USP Class VI requirements. Its low surface energy helps to resist adhesion and does not support bacteria growth. The tubing is highly elastic without the need for plasticizers which make it a preferred option for life science use.

 

Care is recommended in the selection and application of fittings and clamps as sharp barbed fittings or unlined metal clamps could tear into the tubing wall.

Peroxide-cured SILCON MEDICAL tubing is supplied in individual, non-sterile, heat-sealed polybags.

 

SILCON MEDICAL should not be used in continuous steam applications.
