Silica gel products of different levels, why many people want to choose medical grade silica gel!
In hospitals and clinics, you can usually see all kinds of rubber products, such as medical silicone tubes, silicone plugs for needles, silicone ropes tied to your hands, etc. In the current medical industry, apart from drugs, medical devices are the most common products, so why is silicone Products so much attention?
1. The reasons why silicone products are widely used in the medical field
The reason why silicone rubber products are widely used in the medical field is mainly due to their own properties and structural characteristics.
For example, the rubber stopper used in the sealed packaging of medical medicaments requires a certain degree of elasticity, the original airtightness and airtightness can still be maintained after acupuncture, and no debris can fall off. However, the characteristics of silica gel itself are difficult to meet the current medical needs, which requires modifying silica gel or adding some reagents to change its own deficiencies to meet medical applications. The technical requirements of silicone in the medical industry are higher, so professional silicone products suppliers are needed.
At present, the two most widely used materials are silicone rubber and polyurethane. Polyurethane has the advantages of good biocompatibility, excellent mechanical properties, easy molding and processing, and controllable properties; Due to the advantages of physiological inertness and good biocompatibility of silicone rubber is used in treatment of people, these two materials have been discovered in medicine for a long time. Moreover, it has been continuously concerned and researched by people in the industry.
2. Characteristics and applications of medical silicone products
Silicone rubber is based on high molecular weight linear polyorganosiloxane, adding some specific components, and then processing it according to certain process requirements to make a rubbery elastomer with certain strength and elongation. Medical custom silicone products have high temperature resistance, oxidation resistance, hydrophobicity, softness, permeability, aging resistance, high transparency, physiological inertness, non-adhesion to human tissue and blood, good biological adaptability, non-toxic, odorless, A series of excellent properties such as non-carcinogenic.
As a medical polymer material with excellent performance, silicone rubber has attracted the attention of professionals both in the rubber industry and in the medical field. The reasons are, first, the use of silicone medical materials as high technical content, low cost, high added value, and considerable economic benefits; second, the use of the medical properties of silicone rubber. It can not only solve many problems in medical technology, but also enable patients to obtain satisfactory curative effects; third, silica gel has a wide range of uses, which is convenient for the production and fine processing of silica gel products manufacturers, and has good social and economic benefits.
Judging from the development trend of silicone medical devices, its quantity and dosage are increasing year by year, and its uses are also expanding. At present, medical silicone rubber products are widely used in various fields such as brain surgery, ENT, thoracic surgery, abdominal surgery, internal medicine, urology, orthopedics and plastic surgery, such as artificial skull, artificial nose bridge, gastric tube, artificial peritoneum, artificial finger Joints, artificial skin, soft tissue expanders, artificial breasts, etc.
