Silicone in the pharmaceutical sector
Silicone in the pharmaceutical sector is used successfully in multiple products for daily use. Given its low reactivity it has been widely used in the pharmaceutical industry, for example, in the manufacture of capsules to facilitate the ingestion of some medications.
There are countless medical products in which silicone is a component. It is a material commonly used as a container or storage medium (syringes, bottles for the preservation of blood derivatives, extraction tubes ...). It also has applications in heart valves, dialysis, drainage systems ...At the pediatric level, we can also find everyday uses such as pacifiers, teethers, mucus extractor, dental protectors...
In Merefsa we can design any project, test and customize according to the needs of our customers.
Mechanics:Due to its excellent deformation behavior, it is ideal for maxillary correction, prostheses, easily sterilizable pediatric products. Its flexibility allows the passage of fluids adapting to all kinds of shapes.
Thermal: unbeatable response to temperatures -60 ° C to 300 ° C makes it essential in situations of high temperature fluid transfer.
Chemistry: thanks to specific formulations of hardness, color, transparency etc. It can adapt to any design that is needed. Given its chemical stability, it allows to work in contact with highly corrosive materials. Platinum silicone is used in laboratories that require extreme working conditions, high mechanical resistance, transparency, sterilization and hygiene. Fluorosilicones can work with most solvents.
Where is it used?
It is mostly used as a fluid exchanger container, as in syringes and drains, dialysis exchangers, prostheses, pediatric applications and all those in need of sterilization and atoxicity.
Another application is the silicone for molds as an alternative to latex in the manufacture of molds for its flexible and non-stick properties.
Applications:Blood collection tubes, drains, self-filling tubes (test tubes, test tubes ...), prostheses of all kinds, molds, liquid containers, pacifiers, teethers, sex toys, mucus extractors, valves, tube joints, etc ...
