What is the Difference Between Food-grade Silicone and Medical-grade Silicone?

LSR is naturally inert, resistant to many substances, and bio-compatible, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of medical and healthcare devices.

Respiratory Devices Unlike many natural rubber/latex products, Liquid Silicone Rubber's molecular structure is composed of an inorganic backbone, and it is naturally stable, hypoallergenic, and bio-compatible, which makes it an ideal material for silicone medical devices with skin contact applications, such as respirator masks and other respiratory devices.

Fluid Management High-precision LSR medical device injection molding enables the manufacturing of perfectly uniform components directly out of the machine. Because LSR is inert and has superior physical properties it is perfectly suited for components that come into contact with chemicals, blood, and bodily fluids.

What is the difference between food-grade silicone and medical-grade silicone?

The key difference is their use. Food grade silicone is mainly used to manufacture food-contact products, however, the medical grade is of course used to manufacture pharmaceutical products and implant devices. Medical-grade silicone can meet stricter quality standards.
