This silicone is ideal for areas where stability and non-reactivity are crucial. It is especially useful near human tissues or when handling delicate medications. The non-toxic nature of medical grade silicone ensures that it does not interact adversely with human body tissues and fluids, maintaining safety and efficacy across a wide range of applications.
