Wacker to Exhibit Liquid Silicone for Producing Radiation-sterilizable Valves at COMPAMED 2011
- Aug 8, 2011
At this year's international trade fair for high-tech solutions for medical technology, COMPAMED, Munich-based chemicals company WACKER will be unveiling a new liquid silicone rubber for radiation-sterilizable silicone valves used in medical devices. The product, available under the name SILPURAN® 6610/40, serves in the production of biocompatible silicone valves whose slits do not close up or "heal" during radiation sterilization. The new silicone rubber allows such valves to be made without the use of additional auxiliaries. For instance, silicone valves ensure that infusion systems administer the correct dose of liquid medication. COMPAMED 2011 takes place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from November 16 to 18.
