Platinum Cured Silicones
The Platinum Cured Silicone Hygienic Seal
When considering silicone seals, platinum cured is the most favorable over peroxide cured. The curing method used on the silicone has a direct affect on the amount and type of extractables the hygienic seal will emit. Peroxide curing will always have residuals from the curing additive. Its conversion, Benzoic Acid, will result in an unwanted surface condition causing product contamination.
Platinum curing eliminates this problem and minimizes reactions with the respective process fluids. All Rubber Fab silicone hygienic seals are post cured and will not cause cell mutation or growth retardation. They maintain and uphold ultrapure water and CGMP process fluid standards. WHAT YOU PUT IN, YOU GET OUT.
High purity platinum cured silicone hygienic seals are the ideal choice for use in production facilities of fine pharmaceutical, biotechnology, high-purity water, injectables, food and beverage products. Rubber Fab’s platinum cured silicone seals withstand temperature extremes, radiation, corona, moisture and steam. Due to its smooth finish, platinum cured silicone resists product adhesion. These odorless, tasteless, non-toxic seals maintain product integrity and can be autoclaved, irradiated and gas sterilized. And because there is no Benzoic Acid residue, Rubber Fab’s platinum cured silicone hygienic seals provide you with the ultimate, high pure, contact surface.
Superior Tear Resistance
Rubber Fab manufactures all latinum silicone hygienic seals from milled gum silicone. When compared to LIM (liquid injection molding) silicone, milled gum silicone seals have superior resistance to tearing and deformation.
