Why Is Medical Silicone Rubber So Popular?

In medical clinics, we often see various types of silicone products and accessories, such as medical silicone tubes, blood oxygen monitoring finger pads, respiratory silicone masks, needle silicone plugs, and silicone straps that are tied to the hand. Currently, the most widely used items in the medical device industry, besides pharmaceuticals, are medical devices. So why are medical silicone rubber accessories so popular?

Why Silicone Rubber Can Be Used as a Medical Polymer Material

Medical silicone rubber is an excellent medical material with a relatively low material cost, high practicality, low risk of rejection reactions, no harm to the human body, and good biological adaptability.

Medical silicone rubber products have very good medical properties, such as being colorless, non-toxic, heat-resistant, oxidation-resistant, and having high flexibility and transparency. Silicone products can solve some medical problems and meet the medical needs of patients.

Medical silicone rubber has hemostatic properties, and its toxicity test results meet medical requirements. It has good biocompatibility in clinical applications, does not cause teratogenic effects, and does not cause allergic reactions. Medical silicone rubber has excellent toughness and elasticity, good processing performance, and various processing methods, making it the preferred choice for manufacturing various medical elastomer products.

Due to the above characteristics, silicone rubber is suitable for being made into various shapes of tubes/sheets and other products. Therefore, silicone rubber is currently one of the most widely used medical polymer materials that can basically meet different usage requirements, with a trend of continuous and stable growth in its usage amount.

The Widespread Application of Medical Silicone Rubber Products in the Medical Field

Medical silicone rubber products are based on high molecular weight linear polysiloxane, with the addition of certain special ingredients, processed according to specific technological requirements to form a rubber-like elastomer with certain strength and elongation. Judging from the research and development trend of medical silicone rubber, its usage is increasing year by year, and its application range is expanding. Currently, medical silicone rubber can be used in various fields such as neurosurgery, otolaryngology, thoracic surgery, abdominal surgery, internal medicine, urology, orthopedics, and plastic surgery.

The Excellent Properties of Medical Silicone Rubber

As a high-performance medical polymer material, silicone rubber has attracted the attention of professionals in the rubber and medical fields. The reason is that using silicone as a medical material involves high technology content, low cost, high added value, and significant economic benefits. The medical properties of wholesale liquid silicone rubber can solve many medical problems and provide satisfactory treatment outcomes for patients. Silicone rubber products are widely used, easy for silicone product manufacturers to produce, and have good social and economic benefits.

As a high-performance biomaterial, medical silicone rubber has received widespread attention from professionals in the rubber and medical fields. Currently, from the development trend of medical silicone rubber products and the demand of the medical device market, different types of products and technologies are being expanded and improved. It is believed that in the future, more silicone rubber products from China silicone rubber factory will be introduced into various medical fields to meet the needs of different patients.
