silicone tube

Whether you're manufacturing a cosmetic, a lubricant, or a medical product, there are several aspects you should consider when choosing silicone tube. Here are a few things to watch for.

Rubber extrusion

Unlike plastic tubing, silicone tubing does not soften at low temperatures and can endure temperatures from -130 degF to 600 degF. Unlike rubber tubing, it is robust and non-stick, making it perfect for outdoor applications and food processing equipment.


Silicone is a type of polymeric polymer that is made up of atoms of both silicon and oxygen. The majority of the time, it is utilized in peristaltic pumps, processing equipment for food, and medical technologies. It is a highly flexible polymer that can be colored coated, stacked multiple times, and made translucent. Other features include:


The main advantages of custom silicone tube are its longevity, resistance to high temperatures, and non-toxicity. It is also extremely resistant to kinking, making it an excellent choice for use in medical applications. It can also be used to carry liquids and powders.

Kink-resistant

When developing certain types of medical equipment, having access to a silicone tube that is not easily bent is an extremely valuable asset. It has the potential to help improve the performance of these devices and assist manufacturers in meeting the growing demand for devices that are more compact and durable.


It is possible to satisfy a wide range of medical requirements with the use of reinforced tubing of varying types. PE-50 tubing is by far the most common variety of reinforced tubing used today. It has a very thin wall but is extremely rigid. However, due to its propensity to kink, it is the tubing that sees the most use in the field of research and development.


The braided monofilament is an additional form of silicone bowl reinforced tube that is available. The tube's kink resistance is increased thanks to the tight spiral design. This is perfect for making tubes that are very small and highly flexible.



Biodegradable

Silicone, in contrast to plastic, has a life cycle that is benign to the environment. It is a long-lasting substance that is capable of withstanding a wide range of environmental conditions, including high temperatures, chemical pressure, and biological pressure.


Additionally, it can be recycled. Silicone is a compound that is formed by combining silicon with oxygen in a chemical reaction. Silica, methyl chloride, and a few other chemicals are used in its production. It finds application in a wide range of products, from baby bottles and pacifiers to dental and orthopedic implants.


Silicone tool is an excellent choice for use in the production of bottle teats, freezer bags, and other products. However, due to the fact that it does not decompose as rapidly as plastic does, it is not an ideal material for use in compost bins.


It has been demonstrated that biodegradable silicone tubes work more effectively than their non-biodegradable equivalents. [Citation needed] They also have a lower risk of injury when used.
