Medical Silicone Tubing 5/16 ID x 1/2 OD x 1′
MEDICAL SILCONE tubing meets USP Class VI requirements. Its low surface energy helps to resist adhesion and does not support bacteria growth. The tubing is highly elastic without the need for plasticizers, making it a preferred option for life science use. Care is recommended in the selection and application of fittings and clamps as sharp barbed fittings or unlined metal clamps could tear into the tubing wall. SILCONE MEDICAL should not be used in continuous steam applications.

*Note: SILBRADE MEDICAL may be low-pressure sterilized in-line or autoclaved up to 250°F in a normal autoclaving cycle. Silicone will eventually relax and become gummy if exposed to repeated steam sterilization or long-term high temperature or pressure. It should then be replaced.
Note: Any length of tubing that is less than an entire coil must be custom-cut and is non-returnable. Only complete, unaltered coils may be returned.
* Orders for lengths greater than 50′ will receive full coil(s). Any remaining length will be shipped as a separate segment.
