Axiom® Silicone Tubing Mechanical Properties

There are several ASTM standards for measuring mechanical properties of silicone. We base our incoming material qualification on durometer, tear, elongation, and tensile standards.

Suitable for continuous operation at temperatures from -80oF (-60oC) to 450oF (230oC) and short term exposure up to 570oF (300oC). No harmful toxic or physiological effects. Chemically stable and suitable for use with many acids and alkalis. Resistant to ozone, UV and corona discharge. Low flammability and low smoke.

Can be formulated to comply with these specifications:

  • FDA 21 CFR 177-2600
  • MIL ZZ-R-765 Class 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B
  • A-A-59588 Class 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, 3A, 3B
  • USP Class 6
  • ISO 10993-A

Axiom® tubing gives you the advantage of increased:

  • Tensile strength
  • Flexibility
  • Kink resistance
  • Pressure resistance
  • Vacuum resistance
  • Torque
  • Lumen size for higher flow

Biocompatibilities

Silicones are formulated to comply with FDA Biocompatibility Guidelines for medical products. Axiom® silicone tubing has met the requirements of USP Class VI testing and compliance with the ISO-10993-A of biocompatibility.

FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.2600 relates to rubber articles intended for repeated food contact. Axiom® 50, 60 and 70 duro silicone material and tubing comply with this regulation.

Axiom® silicone tubing is odorless, tasteless, and does not support bacteria growth. Silicones do not stain or corrode other materials.
