Silicone suction tubes are used for removal of secretion from mouth, trachea and bronchial tube. Manufactured from non toxic, non irritant medical grade silicone compound. Distal end is open with one lateral eye for effective drainage. Proximal end is provided with a connector for easy connection to the suction equipment. Funnel connectors are color coded for instant size identification.
Silicone rubber is an elastomer composed of silicone(present in silica) together with carbon,oxygen and hydrogen.
IN 1930, JAMES FRANKLIN HYDE RAN THE FIRST RESEARCH TO PRODUCE COMMERCIAL SILICONES.
Silicon is an element which is present in silica (sand) while silicone rubber is manufactured by extracting silicon from silica and passing it through hydrocarbons. It's then mixed with the other chemicals to create silicone.
A silicone or polysiloxane is a polymer made up of siloxane (−R2Si−O−SiR2−, where R = organic group).
