APSM 4-Ply Mandrel-Wrapped Silicone Hose
Available from NewAge Industries/AdvantaPure
Low volatile grade, platinum-cured silicone hose, produced in a clean room for critical pharmaceutical, biomedical, cosmetic, and food applications, comprises the core of APSM. The core is then slipped onto a mandrel and wrapped with polyester mesh fabric and additional silicone. It is cured into a homogeneous hose to enhance its pressure capabilities, making it ideal for discharge applications. APSM has undergone extensive physical, chemical, and biological testing and meets USP Class VI, FDA CFR 177.2600, ISO 10993, European Pharmacopoeia 3.1.9, and 3-A standards.
APSM is not intended for implantation and is not to be used for continuous steam applications.
