ASEPCO’s Silicone Diaphragms
Patented Weirless Radial-Diaphragm™ Valve Design
|Medical-grade, platinum-cured Silicone is widely accepted in pharmaceutical and biotech applications and is often used throughout the plant. Like all of our diaphragm materials, our Silicone diaphragms meet USP Class VI and FDA 21 CFR 177.2600 standards. We provide two different finishes with our Silicone diaphragms. The first, and most common, is our white diaphragm, which is made with Q7-4765 and 0.25% titanium dioxide. The other is clear with no titanium dioxide. To get specific chemical compatibility information about Silicone and other elastomers, we suggest that you refer to the Cole-Parmer Chemical Compatibility Database. To get more information about silicone, look at some of the suggested resources on the Datasheet & Resources tab.||Benefits of this material:
