Silex and MVQ can supply and manufacture a wide range of silicone rubber tubing suitable for almost any application across most industries. We can supply tubing with internal diameters starting from as little as 0.5mm, suitable for applications such as electrical sleeving, to the much weightier industrial large-bore tubing, typically used in dielectric tubing and hot-air ducting applications through to Food and Pharma grade platinum tubes.
While we hold many of our most popular products in stock, we have a huge range of compounds and additives which allows us to produce to your specifications. This includes a wide selection of approved material for use specifically within hygiene-critical applications including Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS), Plastics in Drinking Water (Ktw), German Food Approval (Bfr) and U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP Class VI) to name but a few.
