Swellex™ P Swelling Fluid

Swellex™ P Swelling Fluid is a unique material from MicroCare Medical that quickly swells polyurethane tubing. It is used to speed the manual assembly of medical devices that require placement of thin wall tubing over barbed fittings. When the tubing is immersed in the Swellex fluid the tubing will swell in a precise and predictable manner. Thin wall as well as softer, larger tubing is easy to assemble over barbed fittings. Once removed from the solvent, the polyurethane tubing quickly (10-30 minutes) returns to its original size, strength and color.

These formulas provide a safe, reliable and nonflammable alternative to flammable solvents such as hexane or toluene. This unique chemistry is a huge time-saver for companies assembling products with polyurethane tubing.

  • Superior solution for connecting polyurethane tubing over barbed fittings
  • Quick evaporation
  • Excellent materials compatibility
  • Dries residue-free without affecting tubing strength, compression or color
  • Nonflammable
