Platinum-Cured Silicone Tubing from NewAge® Industries Offers Purity for Fluid Transfer


Well Suited for Medical, Pharmaceutical, & Food Applications

Southampton, Pa. - NewAge Industries manufactures silicone tubing that's platinum cured for the highest degree of purity. Called Silcon® Med-X, it's one of the company's medical grades of silicone tubing and reinforced hose. Silcon Med-X is particularly suited for applications in the medical, biomedical, pharmaceutical, laboratory, surgical, food, beverage, and health and beauty industries.

NewAge produces both peroxide and platinum cured silicone tubing. The platinum-cured version offers the fewest number of extractables, which are compounds that can be drawn out of tubing and adversely affect the fluid flowing within. It also contains no plasticizers that can leach out and cause flow contamination or tube hardening.

Using purer tubing in processing and transfer applications means the end product is purer as well. The elastomer used in Silcon Med-X meets USP (United States Pharmacopoeia) Class VI requirements, and the tubing is produced in a controlled environment. Silcon Med-X is soft, pliable, and will not support bacteria growth. It is supplied in individual, heat-sealed polybags.

Silcon Med-X is nonreactive to body tissues and fluids, although it is not recommended for implantation or in-body uses. The tubing may be reused after sterilization by autoclave or gamma radiation. Silcon Med-X is stocked in 17 sizes ranging from .030" through .625" (5/8") I.D. Other sizes, durometers, and colored Silcon Med-X are available through custom order. Barbed fittings, including those made from FDA-approved polypropylene, are stocked along with a variety of clamps.
