Due to the excellent properties of silicone tubing and the characteristics of environmental protection, non-toxic, harmless and tasteless, in recent years, silicone tubing get more wide applications.
Silicone tubing is also widely used in medical support. Generally speaking, ordinary food-grade silicone tubing will slowly turn yellow after a period of use, and physiological inertia will be weakened under long-term use. In terms of medical treatment, the requirements for silicone tubing are very strict and must ensure that it will not hurt the human body. So the general food-grade silicone tube is far from reaching this requirement.
Medical silicone tubing belongs to platinum vulcanization, using imported gas phase adhesive as raw material and forming vulcanization agents at high temperatures rapid vulcanization. The medical silicone tubing produced in this way typically has the characteristics of environmental protection, high efficiency and odorless, high transparency, yellow resistance, long service life, excellent physiological inertia, aging resistance, and so on. With an inner diameter of at least 0.3mm, it passes the biocompatibility test rigorously. There will be no adverse reactions after implantation. So it is more and more widely used in medical care.
