Different Grades of Silicone Rubber Products | Why Do Many People Choose Medical Grade Silicone?

In hospitals and clinics, you can usually see all kinds of plastic products, such as medical silicone tubes, silicone plugs for needles, silicone ropes tied to your hands, etc. In the current medical industry, apart from drugs, medical devices are the most common products. So why is silicone Why are rubber products so concerned?

1. Properties and structural characteristics of medical grade silicone rubber

In fact, the reason why silicone rubber products are widely used in the medical field is mainly due to their own properties and structural characteristics. For example, the rubber stopper used for sealing packaging of medical drugs requires a certain degree of elasticity, and can still maintain the original shape after acupuncture. Airtight and airtight, and no debris can fall out. However, the characteristics of silica gel itself are difficult to meet the current medical needs, which requires modifying silica gel or adding some reagents to change its own deficiencies to meet medical applications.

At present, the two most widely used materials are silicone rubber and polyurethane. Polyurethane has the advantages of good biocompatibility, excellent mechanical properties, easy molding and processing, and controllable performance; silicone rubber has physiological inertness and good biocompatibility, etc. Advantages, these two materials have been discovered in medicine for a long time, and have been continuously paid attention and researched by people in the industry. Silicone rubber is based on high molecular weight linear polyorganosiloxane with some specific components added, and then processed according to certain process requirements to make a rubbery elastomer with certain strength and elongation.

Silicone rubber used as medical material has high temperature resistance, oxidation resistance, hydrophobicity, softness, permeability, aging resistance, high transparency, physiological inertness, non-adhesion to human tissue and blood, good biological adaptability, Non-toxic, tasteless, non-carcinogenic and a series of excellent properties.

2. Silicone rubber is a medical polymer material with excellent performance

Whether it is in the rubber industry or in the medical field, it has attracted the attention of professionals. The reasons are, first, the use of silicone medical materials as high technical content, low cost, high added value and considerable economic benefits; second, the use of the medical properties of elastic silicone rubber. It can not only solve many problems in medical technology, but also enable patients to obtain satisfactory curative effects; third, silica gel has a wide range of uses, which is convenient for the production and fine processing of silica gel products manufacturers, and has good social and economic benefits.

Judging from the development trend of medical-grade silicone products, its quantity and dosage are increasing year by year, and its uses are also expanding. At present, medical silicone rubber products are widely used in various fields such as brain surgery, ENT, thoracic surgery, abdominal surgery, internal medicine, urology, orthopedics and plastic surgery, such as artificial skull, artificial nose bridge, gastric tube, artificial peritoneum, artificial finger Joints, artificial skin, soft tissue expanders, artificial breasts, etc.

Whether in the rubber and plastics industry or in the medical field, silicone rubber has received widespread attention from industry insiders. At present, from the perspective of the development trend of medical elastic silicone rubber products and the needs of the medical market, different types and technical varieties are expanding and improving. In the future, more silicone rubber products will be put into major medical applications to meet different requirements. patient needs.
