QUALITY SILICONE FOR LONG LIFE
Silclear blend and process specially formulated high grade medical silicones optimised for maximum strength, tear resistance and optical clarity. Different formulations are used for different Silclear products, which means that each product has the best possible material properties for the job. Careful control of all manufacturing parameters and good manufacturing practices ensure that all Silclear products are of the highest quality. The visual clarity enables easy monitoring of milk and vacuum lines for cleanliness and milking equipment maintenance.
| FLEXIBLE AND STRONG
Silclear is flexible, easy to install and does not go stiff and brittle even down to minus -70°C below freezing! It is not deteriorated at all by UV light, ozone or temperatures up to 170°C. As Silclear tubing is lighter than conventional rubber tube, pull on the cluster is lessened, reducing slippage, and improving teat contact. The proven durability means that Silclear will give you a host of benefits at a lower overall cost.
EXTENSIVE PRODUCT RANGE
It is now possible to fit Silclear throughout the milking parlour, from the cow through to the tank!
