Everyone knows that in this battle against the epidemic, the use of various epidemic prevention supplies is inseparable, including masks, medical respirator masks, goggles, etc. The materials for making these anti-epidemic products are non-woven fabrics, plastic PVC, TPE, silicone rubber and so on. Silicone rubber products include high temperature silicone rubber and room temperature silicone rubber. Among them, high temperature silicone rubber has excellent biocompatibility, odorless and non-toxic, high temperature resistance and sterilization, good tear strength, good product fluidity, and easy processing.
1. The role of mask silicone medical products in the medical industry
Masks are the main necessities. At present, masks are divided into various grades. Among them, medical silicone masks are mainly made of high-temperature silicone rubber into a nose clip and wrapped in non-woven materials, or directly integrated with non-woven fabrics and plastic PVC on the outer layer. Form the sealing ring, or directly make it into a replaceable filter box mask, or make it into a mask headband. Its good sealing, extensibility and processing performance can make the shape of the mask easy to fit the human face, suitable for various face shapes, and effectively isolate droplet saliva pollution; the filter box is directly fixed to the sealing silicone mask, thus reducing the replacement of accessories, and simplifying maintenance; the good resilience and soft touch of silicone rubber can also reduce ear and head discomfort when wearing a mask.
