Silicone Tubing & Medical Tube
Medical Grade Silicone Tubing, known as Silicone Tubing & Tube, Silicon Rubber Hose, which are made of elastic clear nature high temp silicone rubber materials by extruded molded tooling, silikon compression mold, LSR injection Molding, which is designed as surgical tubing, lab tubes, sanitary tubing, auto silicone hoses, pump tube, silicone coolant & radiator hose, etc.
Silicone Tubing's Major Defects
Silicone Tubing Defects Reasons
1. Splitting & Bubbles Problem: This problem appears on silicone bulb tube is mainly caused by Molding temperature & poor venting. If molding temperature is too high, air-venting is not good, and flashing of last mold doesn't clear thoroughly, splitting and bubbles problem will show up.
2. White Faded Marks problem was caused by silicone tubing hose's material & mold tool's surface.
3. Uneven Wall Thickness: this problem mainly caused by mold tool, like mold-making precision, misalignment of upper mold and down mold, datum angle & the 4 located pins are not accurate enough.
4. Black dots in the Silicone hose: If the raw material & production environment is not clean,
this problem may happen.
Silicone Tubing's Manufacturing Process
Silicone Hose is also autoclavable, odorless, tasteless, inert and has good resistance to high temperature, compression set, aging, UV, ozone, gas and moisture, etc.
Silicone Rubber Hose’s temperature resistance (-100°F to 500°F), good electrical properties (with good electrical insulating and self-extinguish ability) make it an excellent choice for electric appliance and computer appliance.
Peroxide-cured Silicone Rubber Tubing contains no sulphur or other acid-producing chemicals, which makes other materials contacting with Medical Silicone Tubing no staining, corroding, or deteriorating.
Our Company Advantages for Medical Silicone Tubing Mold-making and Production:
1. Precision Own Mold-Making Technology since 1998, one stop service for silicone extruded molded components, silicone rubber compression molded components, plastic injection molded and liquid silicone rubber molding components.
2. In-depth knowledge of elastomeric materials molded
3. In-depth knowledge of silicone rubber hose mold-making technology and tubing molded technology.
4. Rich experience in silicone hose production and the selection of fittings and clamps for hose
Notes: Take care of the selection of fittings and clamps for silicon hose because the sharp bards or unlined metal clamps could tear into the hose wall and possibly cause a failure.
5. Our company not only makes extruded tube and elastic Silicone Rubber Tubing compression tooling, also can make plastic + liquid silicone rubber hose overmolding injection mold & plastic over molded hose, etc.
