Why Is Medical Silicone Rubber Tubing Unique in the Field of Medicine?

Medical-grade silicone is a type of silicone resin that has the characteristic of being able to safely contact living tissue, also known as biocompatibility. Silicone is a synthetic polymer used in many medical devices due to its flexibility, heat resistance, low toxicity, and chemical reactivity. Medical-grade silicone is used in medical devices such as bandages, feeding tubes, and medical implants.

The physical and chemical properties of silicone and its medical uses differ based on its composition and structure. Biocompatibility is a characteristic of medical-grade silicone material that can be used as part of medical devices without harmful effects on patients. Many materials are not suitable for medical use due to their toxicity or chemical reactivity, or because they trigger immune responses in patients. The biocompatibility of a material varies depending on how it affects different parts of the body. Medical-grade silicone is manufactured in a carefully controlled environment to prevent material contamination that could compromise the biocompatibility of the final product.

Medical silicone rubber tubes are based on linear polyorganosiloxanes with high molecular weight

They form tube-shaped products that are non-toxic, odorless and do not produce harmful substances harmful to the human body. They also do not cause irritant reactions to the human body during use, making medical silicone rubber tubes widely used in medicine.

With the development of technology, medical equipment is constantly being updated, and a variety of medical devices are constantly emerging. Medical silicone rubber tubes are also constantly developing. Although they have not been in use for a long time, they have become very important medical products and are difficult to replace at present.

Medical silicone rubber tubes have a certain elongation and strength

Medical silicone rubber products are highly oxidation resistant, hydrophobic, permeable, highly transparent, resistant to aging and high temperature, non-adhesive to human tissues and blood, and have good biological adaptation and physiological inertia. The most important feature is that they are non-toxic, odorless, and do not produce carcinogens, making them widely used in biomedical applications.

Medical silicone rubber tubes, as a high-performance medical polymer material, have attracted widespread attention in the medical field

Medical silicone rubber tubes can not only solve many medical problems, but also help patients achieve satisfactory therapeutic effects. The raw materials for rubber are widely available and easy to produce and refine, with good social and economic benefits. The use of rubber for medical materials has high technical content, low cost, high added value, and significant economic benefits. Therefore, the scale of use of medical silicone rubber tubes has continued to expand, and they are currently widely used in medical fields such as otolaryngology, thoracic surgery, urology, and orthopedics. Polyurethane elastomers have soft and hard chains alternately embedded with many polar groups, which not only have good biocompatibility, but also have high compatibility with blood.

Due to its excellent characteristics, it is widely used in artificial lungs, bone adhesives, heart pacemaker insulation wires, dental materials, insertion materials, family planning, and other fields. As medical equipment in the field of medicine continues to evolve and optimize, medical-grade silicone rubber tubes are still able to stand out among these diverse medical devices, which is enough to illustrate their excellent properties.
