Liquid Silicone Rubber As The Prospect Of Medical Materials

Oct 24, 2017

Liquid silicone rubber demand will increase with the increase in demand for home health equipment and disposable equipment. For example, the aging population in the United States will increase the demand for urinary devices and personal diagnostic equipment such as catheters. Liquid silicone rubber hygiene, hypoallergenic and easy to clean, disinfected characteristics are favorable for outpatient medical and health facilities.

Liquid silicone rubber as a polycarbonate positive positive pressure ventilation mask on the sealing part of the more and more used in the treatment of sleep apnea disease, this material is good sealing effect, used in the skin is also comfortable, easy to clean and Disinfect and inhibit bacterial growth. The biocompatibility of liquid silicone rubber makes it no allergic reaction with skin tissue. Finished products can also be designed to be transparent, so that caregivers can determine whether they are anxious or uncomfortable by observing the user's expression.

At the same time, liquid silicone rubber in the development of needleless syringes play an increasingly important role, it can help reduce the amount of treatment during the needle. For example, a polycarbonate-coated liquid silicone rubber check valve mounted in an intravenous injection tube can release the drug directly without the use of a hypodermic needle while avoiding contamination.

Increasing demand for miniaturization of equipment requires an accurate miniature model of injection molding machines, but this also increases the demand for liquid silicone rubber because the properties of liquid silicone rubber are not affected by the size of the molded product. Another area of growth is the use of liquid silicone rubber in composite products, which combine silicone rubber and active ingredients.
