Silicone Tubing - Versilic™ SPX-50 High Strength


Versilic™ tubing, produced from a proprietary combination of silicone elastomers, provides durability and versatility in a range of applications.

High-strength silicone tubing ideal for veterinary, medical and pharmaceutical applications. Versilic™ tubing, produced from a proprietary combination of silicone elastomers, provides durability and versatility in a range of applications.

Designed for Demanding Requirements Peroxide-cured Versilic™ Silicone Tubing Formulation SPX-50 is designed for use in applications where flexibility, resiliency and durability are required. Produced from a proprietary combination of silicone elastomers, Versilic Silicone Tubing optimizes critical physical properties such as tensile strength, elongation and compression set, resulting in a more physically durable product.

The Versilic™ Silicone's smooth inner surface reduces the risk of particulate entrapment and microscopic buildup during fluid transfer.

Consistently Reliable Results

Every lot of raw material used in the manufacture of Versilic Silicone Tubing undergoes a series of in-house physical property testing before use. This stringent evaluation of ingredients helps to provide the repeatable quality found in every foot of Versilic Silicone Tubing. Annual testing on actual tubing samples is performed for reaffirmation of adherence to USP Class VI Criteria. Heavy metals extraction analysis, as well as, cytotoxicity testing is performed to confirm the tubing’s biocompatibility.

Complies with Regulatory Guidelines

Versilic Silicone Tubing complies fully with the requirements of the USP Class VI Criteria and is entirely non-toxic, non-hemolytic and non-pyrogenic. It also meets 3-A Sanitary Standards, FDA 21 CFR Part 177.2600 Criteria and NSF 51 Standard.
