Platinum Cured Silicone Tubing

Platinum-cured silicone tubing is a type of flexible tubing made from silicone rubber that has been manufactured using a platinum-based curing system. This method of curing offers several advantages over traditional peroxide-cured silicone tubing.

Here are some key features and benefits of platinum-cured silicone tubing:

  1. High Purity: Platinum-cured silicone tubing is known for its high purity and lack of extractables, making it suitable for applications where product purity is critical, such as pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and food and beverage industries. The absence of peroxides and other curing by-products reduces the risk of contamination of sensitive fluids and processes.

  2. Biocompatibility: Platinum-cured silicone tubing is biocompatible and non-toxic, making it suitable for medical and healthcare applications, including pharmaceutical manufacturing, bioprocessing, medical device manufacturing, and laboratory research.

  3. Flexibility and Durability: Silicone rubber is inherently flexible and resilient, allowing platinum-cured silicone tubing to withstand repeated bending, twisting, and compression without cracking or degrading. This flexibility makes it easy to handle and install in various applications.

  4. Wide Temperature Range: Platinum-cured silicone tubing can withstand a wide range of temperatures, from cryogenic temperatures to high temperatures, without losing its physical properties. It remains flexible and stable even at extreme temperatures, making it suitable for both hot and cold fluid transfer applications.

  5. Chemical Resistance: Silicone rubber has excellent resistance to a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, solvents, and many pharmaceutical and food ingredients. Platinum-cured silicone tubing can be used with confidence in applications where exposure to aggressive chemicals is a concern.

  6. Low Extractables and Leachables: Platinum-cured silicone tubing has low levels of extractables and leachables, reducing the risk of contamination of the fluid being transferred. This is especially important in critical applications where product purity is paramount.

  7. Transparency: Some platinum-cured silicone tubing is transparent or translucent, allowing for visual inspection of the fluid flow and ensuring that there are no blockages or contaminants present.

Overall, platinum-cured silicone tubing offers superior purity, biocompatibility, flexibility, and durability compared to other types of silicone tubing, making it the preferred choice for a wide range of critical fluid transfer applications.
