Pharm-A-Clear™ PXS-C :: Peroxide-Cured Silicone Tubing

Pharm-A-Clear™ PXS-C – Peroxide-Cured Silicone Tubing

Excellent Mechanical Strength | Economical Alternative to Platinum-Cured Silicone

silicone tubing

Because of its excellent mechanical properties and wide range or regulatory approvals the PXS series tubing is an excellent candidate for many aggressive applications where temperature and mechanical properties meet with the need for an economical solution to platinum-cured silicone.

The PXS series tubing is considerably more cost effective then platinum cured silicone, however the compound used to manufacture the PXS series passes some of the highest regulatory standards.
