Swellex™ Swelling Fluid for Silicone Tubing

Product Information

Swellex Swelling Fluid easily expands tubing for easier, faster device assembly

Applications:

  • Speed assembly of medical devices which require silicone tubing to be inserted over barbed fittings
  • Swellex™ is a safe, reliable and nonflammable alternative to flammable solvents such as hexane or toluene

Features:

  • Quick evaporation
  • No solvent residue remains after drying
  • Excellent materials compatibility
  • Dries residue-free without impacting component properties such as strength, compression or color
  • VOC-exempt status

Swellex™ is a silicone tubing swelling fluid which is a time-saving product from MicroCare Medical™. It is used to speed assembly of medical devices which require silicone tubing to be inserted over barbed fittings. When silicone tubing is immersed in the Swellex™ fluid, the tubing quickly softens and swells in a highly predictable manner. This makes assembly faster and easier when connecting thin wall tubing to barbed fittings. Once the tube is in place, the swelling fluid evaporates completely. Within minutes the tubing reverts to its original size, shape and strength, forming a tight, leak-proof grip over the barbed fitting.
