CARPINTERIA, Calif.—NuSil Technology L.L.C. has introduced a low-flow, high-consistency fluorosilicone grease for health care applications called MED-6731.
The silicone grease is composed of a dimethyl methyltrifluoropropylsiloxane copolymer and can be used in applications that require a solvent-resistant grease, NuSil said.
It may be used as a high-vacuum grease around glass, ceramic and ground glass joints, according to the company. NuSil said most components are molded from a dimethyl silicone, so MED-6731 was designed not to absorb into or swell the component.
