NewAge Industries, Southampton, Pa, has introduced Silbrade Platinum braid-reinforced silicone hose, which is platinum-cured to achieve high purity with few extractables. Offering increased pressure capabilities compared to unreinforced silicone tubing, the hose is suitable for laboratory uses, blood and biological fluid handling, deionized water transfer, thermal protection, and use with electrically associated equipment. Platinum curing results in minimized extractables, enabling a purer flow of product within the hose. The hose is designed to be nonreactive to body tissues and fluids, and it will not support bacterial growth. It is also able to resist extreme temperature variation, from –73°C to 204°C. Silbrade Platinum is made in the United States and stocked in sizes from 1/4 inch to 1 inch ID. The company also stocks barbed fittings and hose clamps in several materials.
