Product Details

Silicone has a long history as being one of the most commonly used materials in the healthcare industry. The biocompatibility of silicone and its physical properties make silicone highly desirable for tubing or molded parts in medical devices

However, silicone can be challenging to attach over barbed fittings or to mate molded silicone parts. This is because while silicone tubing is very flexible it does not stretch easily. Also, silicone tubing has a tacky surface which makes sliding a silicone tube over a fitting seem down right impossible

One effective answer is to use the environmentally-friendly, high-performance option for silicone swelling: the popular SwellEx™ silicone swelling agents from MicroCare Medical. Using proprietary VMS technology, the SwellEx™ fluid swells the silicone but also protects that the physical properties of the silicone. In fact, the silicone completely recovers back to its original state once the fluid evaporates with no degradation of its physical attributes. After exposure to the SwellEx™ fluid, the tubing recovers to its original dimensions once the fluid evaporates, resulting in a secure, leak-proof seal on the fitting or part. Key benefits include:

Excellent materials compatibility

Evaporates without residues

No effect on component properties

VOC exempt

REACH Compliant

Inimical to bioburden / non-pyrogenic

Ultra-low GWP

SwellEx™ fluids are available in gallon/3.9 liter bottles, 5-gallon/19 liter pails, and 55-gallon/200 liter drums
