Silicone tube swelling fluids save time and money for companies using silicone tubing. The unique Swellex™ fluids from MicroCare Medical utilize proprietary solvent technology to swell and then soften molded silicone tubing and other thermoelaster materials. This  speeds manual assembly, such as when connecting silicone tubing over barbed fittings.

Swellex™ Silicone Tubing Swelling Fluid

Swellex™ S is a silicone tubing swelling fluid from MicroCare Medical which speeds the insertion of silicone tubing over barbed fittings. The fluid causes the tubing to soften and swell in a highly predictable manner. This makes assembly easier, especially when connecting thin wall tubing over barbed fittings. The solvent evaporates completely and the tubing reverts to its original size, shape and strength, forming a tight, leak-proof grip over the barbed fitting. These formulas replace flammable solvents such as hexane or toluene.
