Viking Extrusions are one of Europe’s leading suppliers of silicone rubber inflatable seals, extrusions and gaskets that are FDA and USP VI certified for use in the pharmaceutical industry.

Silicone Rubber Properties for Pharmaceutical Applications

Silicone rubber is widely used within the pharmaceutical industry as it maintains its sealing properties at extreme high and low temperatures (-60°C to + 200°C). Moreover, silicone is inert and resistant to many chemicals making it an ideal choice for many processing applications. Viking Extrusion’s specially formulated grades of silicone are suitable for clean room applications and have the following accreditations:

  • FDA Compliant to 21 CFR 177.2600
  • WRC approved to M103580/A-H
  • EC1935/2004
  • German B f R compliance chapter XV
  • Certified to USP Class VI
  • Free from Phthalate
  • Free from TSE/BSE bi-products.

Platinum cured grades of silicone are also available. These materials eradicate the use of peroxide during the curing process and are commonly used within the pharmaceutical industry.

Our commitment to quality is reflected in our ISO 9001: 2015 accreditation. All products manufactured are produced within tight tolerances and are fully traceable back to their material batch and supplied with certificates of conformity.
