There are many variables to consider when selecting material for peristaltic and other medical/pharmaceutical tubing. In this presentation, thermoset elastomer expert Bernie Stritzke will compare the fundamental physical properties and functional application testing of silicone, TPE's and other thermoset elastomers. Using results of testing recently completed by Qure Medical, Bernie will focus on peristaltic pump tubing, as that application has stringent requirements, but the data can be used as comparison to evaluate many applications. This presentation will be valuable for engineers and others seeking knowledge about materials available for medical and pharmaceutical tubing applications.
