  • Easy removal with minimal trauma
  • High permeability to gases
  • Autoclavable without significant changes in physical properties

Silicone Sheeting Applications

  • Emergency surgical repair of trauma injuries
  • Abdominal wall closures
  • Surgical repair of fractured orbital floors, nasal septums, perforated ear drums, and urethral strictures
  • Research laboratories
  • Cell growth
  • Scar healing

Silicone Sheeting Packaging

  • A single silicone sheet is sandwiched between clean room grade polyethylene sheets to facilitate handling and cleanliness
  • Packaged in a resealable poly bag that can hold unused portion
  • Supplied non-sterile

Silicone Sheeting Biocompatibility    
Biocompatibility tests, which meet or exceed USP Class VI Plastics tests, have been performed on the elastomers from which this medical grade silicone sheeting is produced. Every production lot of elastomer is tested for levels of trace metals and for absence of cytopathic effects using a tissue culture test. Results are based on a comparison with defined USP negative controls.

Silicone sheeting has been utilized in a wide variety of scheduled and emergency surgical repairs. The purchaser should thoroughly test products made in part or otherwise incorporating Anthony Products Medical Grade Silicone Sheeting to determine the acceptability of the products in a specific application
