Transparent Silicone Tubing.

  • Rubber Tubing
    Industry: Pharmaceutical and life sciences, Chemical Plants, Fluid Handling

Silicone tubing is used in various industries like Pharmaceutical,medical,cosmetics, food processing, chemical plants and many more. Even though the cost of silicone elastomer is higher than other polymers, but its preferred choice by engineers, designers and users especially in high-end applications. The unique property of chemical resistance or chemical inertness is due to Siloxane molecule, which is imparted in the elastomer. With this property silicone has another exclusive property that it is can be manufactured to give crystal clear transparency makes it ideal for usage in fluid handling of critical unit processes.

 

Silicone tubing are manufactured or cured using two types of cure systems.

 

1)   Peroxide based cure system

Peroxide based cure systems were traditional types of cure systems.

 

Advantages:

a)Peroxide based silicone curing is cheaper

b) Imparts better physical properties than platinum based silicone

Disadvantages:

a)If the product is not post cured properly peroxide rises to the surface of   tube over time. That might cause contamination.

b)The transparency of the tube is affected.

 

2)   Platinum Based Cure systems

These are the more advanced curing system is which platinum is the cure initiator and accelerator.

 

Advantages:

a)    Crystal clear silicone tubing can be manufactured

b)    These kind of tubing have no contamination due to substrate.

c)     Also has flame retardant properties so can be used of anesthetic tubing.

d)   FDA compliant and recommended for food and medical usage.

 Disadvantages:

a)    Comparatively costlier than peroxide based silicone tubing

b)    Physical properties are not as good as peroxide based tubing
