Peroxide-cured silicone tubing contains no sulfur or other acid-producing chemicals, thereby eliminating the possibility of staining, corroding, or deteriorating other materials it contacts. It is extremely resistant to ozone and U.V. over long time periods.
Care is recommended in the selection of fittings and clamps for silicone as sharp barbs or unlined metal clamps could tear into the wall and possibly cause a failure.
Silicone is not recommended for continuous high heat steam applications.
Silicone tubing may be low pressure steam sterilized in-line or autoclaved at up to 250°F in a normal autoclaving cycle. However, if exposed to repeated steam sterilization or long-term high temperature or pressure, silicone will eventually relax and become gummy. It should then be replaced.
