Silicone for Medical Technology
For applications in the field of medical technology, Siltec manufactures silicone components that are specifically designed to meet the needs of a sensitive industry. Siltec offers materials that comply with conventional pharmacopeia, such as USP Class VI and EP 3.1.9, as well as conformities, e.g. FDA §177.2600. In addition, parts of ISO 10993 can be fulfilled, e.g. cytotoxicity. The materials can be sterilized using different methods, for example, by means of steam sterilization at 134°C.
Siltec manufactures molded parts from liquid silicone rubber (LSR) and from high-temperature vulcanizing (HTV) silicone rubber, as well as extruded products, such as tubes for intensive care and laboratories. Through in-house compounding, a variety of colors, hardness levels, and additional material properties can be offered specific to the needs of the customer. Our flexible equipment portfolio enables the manufacturing of intricate micro-components as well as material-intensive components and parts with large dimensions. Siltec offers to inspect and package the manufactured components in a controlled environment.
Surgical Devices and Accessories
Due to its structural purity, silicone rubber is ideally suited for use in the operating room. Silicone components for surgical devices and accessories include sterile sealing systems or seals for surgical devices, monitors or operating panels. Siltec manufactures accessories based on customer specifications for numerous areas of medicine, such as neonatology, pediatrics or adult care. Complex requirements are also reliably met based on our many years of experience.
Laboratory and Sterilization Accessories
Laboratory and sterilization accessories are often subjected to sustained loads due to heat and pressure. The ability to disinfect and sterilize them as well as their high chemical resistance are among the core requirements. Siltec provides elements, such as seals for sterile containers or tray systems for mechanical instrument preparation. Our portfolio also includes packaged sealing systems for tabletop devices or large devices that are used in the central sterile supply department (CSSD).
Intensive Care and Consumables
Respiratory masks or breathing tubes for intensive care as well as tubes and tracheostomy tubes for long-term respiratory assistance are constantly in contact with patients. Therefore, they must have particularly good physiological properties.
Siltec reliably implements specific requirements, such as the use of X-ray contrast medium or the manufacturing of components with different properties in the 2K process.
Diverse packaging options, such as individual packaging or packaging under controlled conditions, are available for intensive care and consumables.
Baby Care Articles
Silicone products that are used for babies must meet particularly high requirements. Molded silicone parts are used in drinking bottles, such as bottle nipples, soothers, and pacifiers. For milk pumps, Siltec products are used as valves, tubes and tube systems, as well as seals and duckbills. Siltec offers materials that comply with the food industry in accordance with FDA §177.2600, BfR XV and Directive (EC) 1935/2004, as well as biocompatibility in accordance with parts of ISO 10993 (e.g. cytotoxicity).
