Elkem Silicones exhibiting at MEDICA - COMPAMED 2022

Medical Grade Silicones for medical, biomedical and pharmaceutical applications

From November 14th  to 17th 2022, MEDICA and COMPAMED will offer an opportunity to connect with all members of the medical value chain and give an insight into the world of medical technologies. Elkem Silicones will exhibit its range of Silbione™ Medical Grade Silicones for medical, biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.

This year, Elkem Silicones is proud to launch Silbione™ RTV 4450 CLR: a brand-new product of the RTV range, especially developed for biomedical electronics and diagnostics applications. Its specific properties (optical transparency, low viscosity, room-temperature cure) support the manufacturing operations and efficiency of diagnostics and medical devices.

Our team will be in Düsseldorf to discuss product innovations, present silicone materials (Heat Cure Rubbers, Liquid silicone rubbers, Adhesives, RTVs, gels…), support the best manufacturing methods for a given design and provide safe materials for final users.
