Notes

The most outstanding properties of SILCON are its flexibility and resistance to temperature extremes. These, plus its good electrical properties and ability to self-extinguish, make SILCON an excellent choice for appliances and thermal sleeving.

 

Peroxide-cured SILCON contains no sulfur or other acid-producing chemicals, thereby eliminating the possibility of staining, corroding, or deteriorating 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 barbed fittings or unlined metal clamps could tear into the tubing wall and possibly cause a failure.

^SILCON 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.

 

Colors for industrial applications are available through minimum order — call for details.

 

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

Add length suffix to part number when ordering. Example: 100 ft. of 1/16″ I.D. x 1/8″ O.D. tubing is part number 280 0084-100.
Working pressures are calculated from burst testing using a 3:1 safety factor. Application testing is recommended.
[U] If used in an NSF application, the maximum operating temperature is limited to 350°F.
[T] Performed on hydrostatic test equipment at ambient temperature; based on the ASTM D1599 method.
ID is the critical dimension for fittings application.
