Silicone Rubber Medical Application

Silicone rubber is widely used in medical applications due to its exceptional properties and biocompatibility. Different types of silicone rubber formulations are specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of medical devices and healthcare applications.

Our broad portfolio of silicone elastomers for silicone rubber medical applications has been tested against biocompatibility standards. The distinctive properties of silicone elastomers – purity, clarity, strength – coupled with ease of processability, have resulted in their use in a broad range of medical device applications, for instance, medical grade silicone for casting, scars, molding and injections. Our silicone materials exhibit exceptional stability over a wide range of temperatures, lending themselves to use in applications requiring repeated sterilization performance. Typical applications include:

• Dental/surgical devices
• Fluid and drug delivery devices
• Septa / stoppers / laboratory accessories
• Medical tubing
• Dialysis o-rings
• Seals / o-rings / valves
• Respiratory/anesthesia
• Medical equipment keypads

Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) is a versatile material that has found extensive use in various industries, including the medical industry. It is a high-performance polymer that has revolutionized medical manufacturing by providing superior characteristics such as biocompatibility, durability, and flexibility. In this article, we will explore what LSR is, its applications, and how it has transformed the medical industry.
