Leading the future of silicone tubing
Patented & only available from RAUMEDIC: Low-Tack Surface for Silicone Tubing
RAUMEDIC's biopharma silicone tubing – including braided tubing - incorporates the unique Low-Tack surface treatment, which is protected by a patent.
Following the extrusion process, the SIL fluid handling tubing undergoes a specialized LowTack method where a distinct coating is applied to its outer surface.
Benefits of the patented Low-Tack surface treatment:
- Gliding force significantly lower
- Much less strain at the point of contact with the pump.
- Longer tubing lifespan due to reduced wear and lower material abrasion
- Enhanced sliding properties compared to conventional pharma tubing
- Tubing surface less sticky - making secondary processing, assembly and packaging easier.
- Reduced particle adhesion on the surface of the tubing
- Significantly reduced possibility of impurities
- Braided tubing is printable – unlike most silicone tubing in the market
- Inkjet printing is safer and cleaner than roller printing
