The most outstanding properties of SILCON are its flexibility and resistance to temperature extremes. These, plus its good electrical properties and ability to self- extinguish, make SILCON an excellent choice for appliances and thermal sleeving.

  • Raw materials meet FDA requirements per FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 for use with food contact surfaces
  • Able to resist extreme temperature variation: -100°F to 500°F (350°F maximum for NSF applications)
  • Translucent natural color for visual contact with the flow
  • Resilient, stretchable, and resistant to compression set
  • Reusable — will withstand repeated sterilization^
  • Odorless, tasteless, and inert
  • Good electrical and weatherability properties — resists U.V., ozone, gases, and moisture
  • Listed by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF-51) for food equipment materials*
  • Conforms to 3-A Sanitary Standards for Number 18-03 (Multiple Use Rubber and Rubber-Like Materials)
  • Free of BPA, latex and phthalates; RoHS compliant

Peroxide-cured SILCON contains no sulphur or other acid-producing chemicals, thereby eliminating the possibility of staining, corroding, or deteriorating materials it contacts. It is extremely resistant to ozone and U.V. over long time periods.

^SILCON may be low pressure steam sterilized in-line or autoclaved at up to 250°F in a normal autoclaving cycle. However, if exposed to repeated steam sterilization or long- term high temperature or pressure, silicone will eventually relax and become gummy. It should then be replaced.
*If used in an NSF application, the maximum operating temperature is limited to 350°F.
**Values listed are typical and are meant only as a guide to aid in design. Field testing should be performed to find the actual values for the application.

SILCON is not recommended for implantable or in- body uses or for continuous steam applications.

Other silicone tubing products from NewAge Industries offer similar temperature ranges and are available in medical, industrial, and NSF-listed grades. Styles include peroxide or platinum-cured, unreinforced or braid-reinforced tubing and a heavy-duty, vacuum-rated reinforced hose. Made in USA.
