Silicone Rubber Seal Products

5 January 2018 Posted by: makeyourmark New Technologies

Integrated Liner Technologies (ILT) has been converting raw silicone into production rolls after marrying PTFE to the silicone for 20 years. We are the largest producer of vial caps in the world and have earned a well-respected reputation for creating silicone rubber seals, caps, and septa.

Natural Rubber Versus Silicone Rubber Seals

Silicone rubber seals are made from a synthetic material. Natural rubber, on the other hand, is produced organically from rubber tree sap. Silicone rubber has been widely used in many industries including automotive, cooking, food storage, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology to name a few. While silicone is technically part of the rubber family, it’s better defined as a combination of synthetic rubber and synthetic plastic polymer. Silicone rubber contains silicon combined with carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Pharmaceutical industries prefer silicone rubber seals for their performance and shelf life which range from 6 to 12 months on average. Additionally, silicone rubber is more resistant to fungi, chemicals, ozone, UV lights, and heat. Because of this higher heat resistance, it can be used to efficiently complete insulation. Environmentally speaking, silicone rubber is much more friendly than plastic and safer for human consumption and skin products. Because silicone rubber is considered chemically stable, it is deemed non-toxic and safe to use by medical and scientific experts. Order silicone rubber seal products by contacting us here.

Silicone Rubber Seals – Made in the USA

All products including our silicone rubber seals are manufactured in the USA. Our team of engineers along with our in-house chemist produce high-quality silicone rubber products that have made ILT a global industry leader with a trusted name amongst pharmaceutical labs. By keeping the entire process at our USA plant, we keep our overhead low and our productivity high. Our creativity and technological advancements have resulted in unique equipment and tooling not found anywhere else in the industry. We ship products worldwide through a network of loocal distribution. Find out who your local stocking distributor is by contacting us here.

Custom Silicone Rubber Septa

In addition to silicone rubber seals for pharmaceutical labs, ILT offers a wide range of products for industries including Chromatography, Environmental Testing, Headspace Analysis, Diagnostics, and Chemical Packaging. We work with instrument manufacturers to ensure analytical compliance and design for all custom orders. We offer custom silicone rubber septa in various thicknesses as well as a variety of colors. We work with our clients to produce quality silicone rubber septa caps that meet all custom requirements and expectations. We also specialize in custom septa and vial caps in other materials such as PTFE, natural red rubber, aluminum-faced silicone, and PFAS-specialized materials. ILT has revolutionized the Inter-Seal liner bonding process, minimizing potential septa fall out during transportation. This chemically inert manufacturing breakthrough allows for a true bond at the molecular level; thus, providing uniform septa and minimizing the potential for septa coring.

ILT has been a trailblazer for platinum silicone and silicone rubber septa products for over two decades. Order silicone rubber seal products by contacting us here.
