Aug 02, 2022
What is a medical grade silicone hose?
The medical grade silicone hose is made of imported raw materials. According to the compatibility test, the medical grade silicone hose is non-toxic, tasteless, no stimulation to the human body, and has a long service life. Therefore, it is widely used in the medical service industry. Hospitals use ventilators, medical analytics, tourniquets, etc.
What is food grade silicone hose?
Food grade silicone hose is through the FDA food grade certification of the hose, using imported pure silica gel raw material extrusion molding. High temperature resistance, low temperature, tasteless non-toxic, high transparency, long time use without deformation. Usually can be used in water dispenser, coffee machine, baby bottle straw and other fields.
Medical grade silicone, indicating medical grade certification and biocompatibility reports. Can be used for a range of medical purposes, including contact with human blood. The safety level is higher than food grade and medical grade.
Features of medical silicone tube:
1. High transparency, high hygiene level, environmental protection, high efficiency, no odor, high temperature disinfection and autoclaving;
2. Medical-grade silicone tube has good physiological inertia and will not cause harm to human tissue. After implantation in human tissue, it will not cause foreign body rejection and inflammation to surrounding tissues;
3. High tensile strength, high tear resistance, low shrinkage, good resilience;
4. High and low temperature resistance, at high temperature will not deformation, also will not produce decomposition of harmful substances, with biological inertia, biological aging resistance;
5. High level of health and environmental protection, through a series of food grade safety testing. Medical silicone tube general ability -60~300°C.
Characteristics of food grade silicone tube:
1, food grade silica gel is a kind of environmental protection silica gel, non-toxic, odorless, high transparency;
2, soft, good elasticity, kink resistance without deformation;
3, no cracking, long service life, cold and high temperature resistance;
4, with higher tear strength and superior electrical performance;
5, placed at room temperature, no yellow, no frost spray, no white, no fade, no scale in water for a long time, no smell;
