Three Types of Silicone Tubing Available in Medical Grades from NewAge(R) Industries


Silicone is best known for its flexibility and temperature range, making it useful for a variety of applications. Medical-grade silicone tubing is now available as peroxide-cured tubing or reinforced hose, plus platinum-cured tubing.

Southampton, Pa. (I-Newswire) February 26, 2014 - Medical-grade silicone tubing and reinforced hose from tubing manufacturer NewAge Industries handles a wide variety of applications well. Its flexibility and temperature range make it useful for medical devices, pharmaceutical processing, peristaltic pumps, respiratory and ventilating machinery, portable oxygen concentrators and other gas-related uses, blood and biological fluid handling, electrically-associated equipment, and food and beverage transfer.

Three variations of the tubing are made, with two types peroxide cured and one platinum cured. Silcon(R) Medical unreinforced tubing is extremely pliable, translucent for visual contact with the flow, and nonreactive to body tissues and fluids. It handles temperatures from 100°F to 400°F ( 73°C to 204°C) and has surface properties that resist sticking, encrustation and bacteria growth. Silcon Medical is a peroxide cured product.

Silcon Med-X provides the same benefits and performance characteristics as Silcon Medical but is platinum cured for a higher degree of purity and reduced extractables. Peroxide-cured Silbrade(R) Medical is braid reinforced for higher pressure carrying capabilities as compared to unreinforced tubing. Like the Silcon tubing styles, its smooth bore facilitates easy cleaning and system purging.

All three products are manufactured in controlled environments from silicone elastomer that is USP (United States Pharmacopeia) Class VI and FDA compliant. They contain no plasticizers which could leach out, causing flow contamination or tube hardening. The products withstand sterilization methods such as autoclaving and gamma irradiation.

Silcon Medical is stocked in 18 sizes ranging from .030" through 1/2" I.D.; Silcon Med-X in 17 sizes from .030" through 5/8" I.D. The seven stock sizes of Silbrade Medical range from 1/16" to 1" I.D. Custom sizes, colors, hardnesses and additional modifications are available; lead times apply.

Other grades of silicone tubing are stocked by NewAge Industries, and like the medical versions, all are manufactured in the U.S. Standard Silcon and Silbrade are certified by the National Sanitation Foundation for food equipment applications (NSF-51), while full-vacuum-rated Silvac(R) offers the durability of fabric and stainless steel wire reinforcement for more demanding applications.
