What Is The Difference Between Medical Silica Gel And Medical Grade Silica Gel?
Apr 22, 2018

What is the difference between medical silicone and medical grade silicone?

Let me share with you the difference between the two, so as to avoid being misled by some manufacturers.

The medical silica gel, as we call it, is a silicone that can be used in medicine, but only externally, not in the human body. This kind of silica gel may only have food grade. It can be used in the medical industry, it can contact skin, but it can't reach medical level and biocompatibility test. In other words, as long as it is not used in the body, there is no problem with this type of silica gel.

Medical grade silica gel, which is certified by medical grade and biocompatibility reports. It can be used for a range of purposes in medicine, including contact with human blood. Safety level is higher than food grade.

In general, medical grade silicone can also be called medical silica gel, but medical silica gel cannot be called medical grade silicone. If you require a very high level of security, be sure to check for biocompatibility reports or other medical reports.
