Silastic® BioMedical Grade Enhanced Tear Resistant (ETR) Elastomers

Silastic® BioMedical Grade ETR Elastomers are a series of two-part, high consistency rubber silicone elastomers composed of dimethyl and methylvinyl siloxane copolymers and reinforcing silica. High Consistency Rubbers are millable thermoset silicone elastomers that can be extruded continuously to form a desired size and shape before curing. This series of elastomers are heat-cured high consistency silicone rubbers designed for use by customers fabricating medical devices, including those intended for implantation in humans for less than 30 days

    Uses:

  • Fabrication of extruded or molded parts
  • Fabrication of medical, surgical and diagnostic devices and components
  • Can be included in short-term implants that are in place for 29 days or fewer

    Advantages:

  • Pigmentable
  • Non-blooming
  • No peroxide volatiles or residues generated during cure
  • Contains no organic plasticizers, phthalates or latex additives
  • Optional post-cure to stabilize properties
  • Sterilizable by ETO, autoclave and gamma irradiation
  • High gas permeability compared to most thermoset elastomers and thermoplastics
  • Manufactured in a dedicated healthcare facility
