Sani-Tech® Ultra Platinum-Cured Silicone Tubing

Sani-Tech® Ultra represents the next generation in ultra-pure platinum-cured silicone tubing. Quite simply, it’s a better product. Features like ultra-low extractables and longer pump life were engineered into Ultra by the experienced materials scientists of Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics to meet the stringent requirements of the biopharmaceutical market.

Fluid integrity is vitally important in many biopharmaceutical applications. Sani-Tech® Ultra formulations are manufactured and packaged in a certified clean room from the finest grade of silicone materials, and ultra-low TOCs ensure that contamination by extractables is kept to an absolute minimum, and the formulation imparts no taste or odors. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics’ silicone tubing is known for its superior pump life — and Sani-Tech® Ultra is no exception.

They are fully characterized, validated and tested to a variety of specifications including USP Class VI, ISO 10993, and EP 3.1.9. All detailed testing protocols are available on our product validation guide.
