Here’s a look at why silicone is an ideal material for your application.  

What is Silicone? 
Silicone rubber is an elastomeric thermoset that utilizes siloxane chemistry to provide unique material properties. It is known for its low thermal conductivity, low chemical reactivity, biocompatibility, thermal stability, and high gas permeability.   

Why choose Silicone for the Medical industry?
Silicone is a material of choice for medical device design engineers when creating components requiring exceptional biocompatibility, high tensile strength, low compression set, chemical inertness, and sterilization compatibility.
