SILBIONE® RT foams are liquid materials enabling the production of silicones foams, with low density and open cells. They are certified as biocompatible and comply with healthcare and medical highest standards: ISO 10 993-1 and USP Class VI tests (Cytotoxicity, skin irritation, skin sensitisation). With all these properties, the SILBIONE® RT Foams fit perfectly with the healthcare market, in terms of technical needs, regulatory requirements and formulation flexibility.
"BLUESTAR SILICONES uses a patent pending technology to manufacture silicone foams with distinct characteristics which differentiates it from competitor products and meets the regulatory, technical and functional requirements of the polymers used in medical devices industry. The foam has advanced physical properties like lower density, higher flexibility and breathability along with increased biocompatibility." says Shomik Majumdar, Vice President – Chemicals, Materials and Food – Frost & Sullivan.
BLUESTAR SILICONES can customize the SILBIONE® Silicone foams to fit with OEMs specific requirements and provide tailor-made silicone foams with extreme performances. "The hardness, flexibility and breathability of the polymer can be customized and changed within a particular range by controlling the process reaction. This addresses the challenge faced by most medical devices manufacturers in selecting the best fit polymer for a particular application.
The properties of being light weight, flexible and resistant to weathering make it an ideal polymer for use in home care medical devices. The foams can also be used in applications like skin and wound care, prosthetics and comfort care. The use of BLUESTAR SILICONES foams in various applications enhances its ability to be a product of choice for most healthcare related OEM’s." adds Tridisha Goswami. Research Analyst.
