Silicone rubber is an ideal material for medical devices. Used in tubing and catheters, silicone rubber is outstanding in reducing infections and easing the removal of catheters after extended use. This is due to silicone's non-wetting surface which minimizes blood clotting, tissue adherence and encrustations. Product examples include catheters, drain tubes, Foley main shafts and balloon cuffs, feeding tubes, and peristaltic delivery tubes. Other examples are o-rings, hem seals, guidewire seals, connectors, Septa, valves, infusion sleeves, and introducer tips. Complete device assemblies include nasal splints, occluders, drains and thoracic catheters and others.
