The Prospect Of Liquid Silicone Rubber As A Medical Material

Release Time: Apr 15, 2018

The demand for liquid silica gel will increase with the increase in the demand for home health equipment and disposable equipment. The aging population in the United States, for example, will increase the demand for urinary equipment, such as catheters, and personal diagnostic equipment. The sanitary, low allergy and easy to clean and disinfect liquid silicone rubber are beneficial to the medical health facilities in the outpatient clinic.

As for polycarbonate liquid silicone rubber sealing part of positive pressure ventilation on the mask, is more and more used to suspend the disease in the treatment of sleep related breathing, this material sealing effect is good, with comfortable on the skin, easy to clean and sterilize and inhibit the growth of bacteria. The biocompatibility of liquid silica gel makes it not allergic to skin tissue. The finished product can also be designed to be transparent so that the nursing staff can determine whether or not they are anxious or uncomfortable by observing the facial expression of the user.

At the same time, liquid silica gel plays a more and more important role in the development of needles without needle syringes, which can help reduce the amount of needles in the treatment process. For example, a liquid silicone rubber check valve packed with polycarbonate wrapped in a vein tube can directly release drugs while avoiding subcutaneous needles and avoid contamination.

The growth trend of equipment miniaturization needs the accurate miniature model of injection molding machine, but this increases the demand of liquid silicone rubber at the same time, because the properties of liquid silicone rubber will not be affected by the size of moulded products. Another area of growth is the use of liquid silicone rubber in composite products, which combine silicone rubber and active ingredients.
