What does medical grade silicone mean?

Medical silicone is a widely used biological material in cosmetic surgery.
Medical silicone has a variety of forms, such as liquid silicone oil, silicone, foam-like silicone sponge, and elastic solid silicone rubber, etc.

A medical silicone application form is solid silicone rubber. Silicone rubber has good biocompatibility, no irritation, no toxicity, no allergic reaction, very little rejection reaction;

Medical silicone has good physical and chemical properties, it can maintain its original elasticity and softness when contact with body fluids and tissues, it also not to be degraded, Medical silicone is a very stable inert substance. It can withstand high temperatures and be disinfected.
Medical properties of medical silicone were discovered in 1945.
Entering the 1960s, there have been many reports about medical silicone as a human implanted material and medical products application abroad

In particular, the application of medical silicone in pacemakers and heart valves, which not only enables thousands of patients to gain new life but also contributes greatly to the development of other medical products. ( gives birth to thousands of patients)

In the 1960s and 1970s, many medical silicone rubber products (silicone rubber breasts, knuckles, eye socket soles, trachea intubation, ear profile, hydrocephalus drainage tubes, peritoneal dialysis tubes, airbag dissection catheters, catheters, etc.) were put into clinical application.

Silicone rubber is a very good performance of polymer medical materials, it used as medical artificial materials, it is a relatively low cost, practical, it not easy to appear rejection reflect, no harm to the human body, good biological adaptability, not with the human body’s capillaries pasted up. medical silicone does not have any harm to the human body, it also has good biological adaptability and it not with the human body’s capillaries pasted up.
