Liquid silicone rubber will be an indispensable item in the medical industry

Release Time: Mar 15, 2018

With the increasing recognition of medical materials used in the medical device industry, the unique properties of liquid silicone rubber extend its application scope. As these features are more widely known, new applications and expanding markets are still driving liquid silicon rubber to be more widely used in medical devices.

Liquid silicon rubber machine is widely used in the field of liquid silicon products, such as medicine, food, baby products, diving supplies, electrical insulation accessories and cable accessories, etc.

The biocompatibility and low sensitivity of liquid silicone rubber make the risk of anaphylaxis in the use of the rubber to the lowest. And because of its hygienic nature, bacteria and fungi are almost impossible to grow and spread. These features make it an ideal material for short-term and long-term transplant equipment.

Liquid silicone rubber is elastic, durable and transparent, and can be irradiated with ultraviolet light and resist tension.  Unlike traditional rubber, liquid silicone rubber can withstand extreme temperatures and will not deform from -55 C to 200.  Because of this characteristic, the instruments made of liquid silicone rubber can be sterilized in high pressure.

Liquid silicone rubber also has unusual permanent compressive deformation properties, which can be made into different wall thickness in the same component. In addition to the durability and plasticity of the material, these features make it a key component of medical equipment.

In a large number of synthetic rubber, silicone rubber is the best in it. It is tasteless non-toxic, not afraid of the characteristics of heat and the cold, at three hundred degrees Celsius and ninety degrees Celsius when "keep cool", "natural", still without losing the original strength and flexibility. Silicone rubber also has good electrical insulation, oxygen resistance, aging resistance, anti-aging resistance, anti mildew resistance, chemical stability and so on. Because of these excellent properties, silicone rubber has played an important role in modern medicine.

Application of liquid silicone rubber in medical industry

1, silicone rubber noise prevention ear plug: wear comfortable, can very good barrier noise, protect the ear film.

2, silicone rubber fetal suction device: easy to operate, safe to use, can be fetal head size deformation, attracting fetal fetal scalp will not be sucked up, can avoid scalp hematoma and intracranial injury and other ills, can greatly reduce the pain of childbirth of dystocia pregnant women.

3, silicone rubber artificial blood vessels: with special physiological functions, it can be intimacy with the human body, and the human body does not exclude it. After a certain period of time, it will be perfectly integrated with human tissues.

4, silicone rubber tympanic membrane patch: thin and soft, good smoothness and toughness. Is an ideal material for repairing the eardrum, and the operation is simple, the effect is quite good.

5, in addition, there are silicone rubber artificial trachea, artificial lung, artificial bone, silicone rubber duodenal tube, and so on, the efficacy is very ideal.
