For higher temperature and pressure applications or those with a need for improved kink resistance, we also offer our Pharm-A-Clear™ R, platinum-cured braided silicone tubing. Pharm-A-Clear™ R is constructed using an inner and outer platinum-cured silicone shell with a polyester inner braiding. The inner core is a softer (50 durometer, shore A) material for flexibility, while the outer shell is slightly harder (60 durometer, shore A) for strength.
Our tubing is Animal derived ingredient Free (ADIF), meets USP Class VI, FDA CFR 177.2600, and ISO 10993 Requirements. Pharm-A-Clear™ R is manufactured in an ISO Class 7 clean room. Please contact us us for our extensive validation package.
Pharm-A-Clear™ R stands up to repeated sterilization cycles including, but not limited to, ethylene oxide (EO), autoclave, steam in place (SIP), gamma irradiation, and e-beam irradiation. Although this hose has one of the longest service lives in it’s class, after repeated exposure to high temperature sterilization cycles the hose will become “gummy”, at which time it should be replaced.
