REACH Compliance and Medical Silicones

Specialty Silicones Products (SSP) makes ultra-clean silicones that are used with medical devices and equipment. The base material in our SSP 2390-series elastomers meets USP Class VI requirements for biocompatibility. These platinum-cured silicones also meet FDA CFR 177.2600 requirements and comply with the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive. Increasingly, however, we’re also asked about REACH compliance.The purpose of this article is to clarify [...]


EMI Conductive Silicones with Third-Party Test Data

How do you decide which EMI conductive silicones to specify and purchase? If you’re like most engineers, buyers, and product managers, you need to see third-party test data in order to trust a supplier’s products. Price, minimum order quantities (MOQs), and delivery times are important, of course, but there’s no substitute for independent testing, especially if you need EMI conductive silicones that meet standards like MIL-DTL-83528 for military gaskets or UL 94 V0 EMI gaskets [...]
