Component Supply offers silicone tubing in the dimensions indicated on the chart below. This silicone tubing does not contain sulfur or any other acid-producing chemicals, so the risk of staining, corroding, or deteriorating other materials is mostly eliminated. Even over an extended time, this tubing is highly resistant to UV, ozone, gases, and moisture. It is not recommended for implantable or continuous steam applications. However, it can be low pressure steam sterilized in-line or autoclaved at up to 250°F in a normal autoclaving cycle with limits. When exposed to repeated steam sterilization or long-term high temperature or pressure it will eventually relax, become gummy and need to be replaced.
