Medical Healthcare

RD Rubber Technology is a custom liquid silicone rubber manufacturer for the healthcare industry, offering a variety of liquid silicone and silicone rubber parts for healthcare applications such as respiratory therapy and ventilators, IVs, biopsy, medical device equipment, surgical instruments, pharmaceutical production, and other medical devices. We work closely with our medical device customers from the prototype phase of a project through final production.

Our project team begins with a complete and thorough manufacturing engineering review, recommending the most effective and efficient molding processes. We also suggest manufacturing processes and material options to better maximize compatibility with the rubber molding process.

Complete product and material traceability is a basic part of our quality system, from material selection through the molding process to the date the parts are shipped. Certification of conformance is included with every shipment. As our entire product is custom, confidentiality is essential in our communications. We routinely sign non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements with our customers and we are NIST 800-171 compliant.

Learn how our products serve critical functions in the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical device industries.


PharmaceuticalPharmaceutical applications range from drug discovery and development to the full production of chemical, biological, and radiological products. These applications often involve aggressive chemical environments that demand ultra-high-purity sealing components. Such operating conditions present a challenge for sealing materials and their producers. 

Meeting increasingly rigorous pharmaceutical regulations requires innovation and expertise.  RD Rubber works closely with our customers’ technical teams to achieve sufficient material and manufacturing standards. 

The success of pharmaceutical companies depends on the reliability of their equipment.  Our customers require effective sealing performance and integrity for single use and for multiple cycles. .

Pharmaceutical sealing products must demonstrate:

  • Non-degradation of material, which could otherwise cause contamination
  • Resistance to microbial growth
  • Resistance to autoclaving or chemical sterilization
  • Zero leaching of constituent elements like waxes or oils

RD Rubber Technology supplies chemically resistant seals and gaskets intended for use in numerous pharmaceutical applications.


Bio-PharmaceuticalRD Rubber Technology offers liquid silicone rubber (LSR) molding and liquid injection molding (LIM) products for biopharmaceutical applications. These materials enable biopharmaceutical device designers and manufacturers to enhance functionality for critical applications such as needle-free access valves, seals, stoppers, O-rings, and assembled parts.

RD Rubber’s LIM and LSR molded products offer these benefits to the biopharmaceutical industry:

  • Endure repeated sterilization: Thanks to their high thermal and chemical stability, biopharmaceutical-grade silicone products maintain performance after multiple rounds of sterilization using ethylene oxide, steam, e-beam, or gamma radiation.
  • Biocompatibility: Generally compatible with medications and body fluids, silicone is skin-friendly and atraumatic. 
  • Comfort and ergonomics: Silicone provides a soft grip, elasticity, and minimal insertion force without plasticizers or other additives. 
  • Optical transparency: Silicone is high-clarity and transparent.
  • Long service life: Even after puncturing, silicone recovers and maintains its resilience. The material also reduces fatigue and withstands varying levels of stress.
  • Compliant with regulations: The silicone produced by RD Rubber is tested to meet or exceed USP Class VI and/or ISO 10993 biocompatibility standards. 

Biopharmaceutical applications for silicone rubber products include vaccine production, cell media harvesting and fermentation, high-purity water transfer, bioreactor processes, single-use systems, sterile filling, filtration, and peristaltic pump transfer.

Medical Device

Medical DeviceDue to the chemical makeup of liquid silicone rubber (LSR), it cures quickly and completely and will not degrade unless heated to very high temperatures. The material can withstand repeated sterilization, making it effective for numerous medical device applications. 

Medical-grade rubber must be biocompatible, resist chemicals and high temperatures, have good electrical and mechanical characteristics, and be translucent and be manufactured in a contaminant-free environment.

Some of the applications for silicone rubber parts include:

  • Blood pumps
  • Insulin pumps
  • Caps
  • Plugs 
  • Syringes
  • Single-use pharmaceutical production equipment
  • IV systems
  • Oxygen supply systems
  • Anesthesia breathing regulators
  • Vaccine production equipment
  • Pain relief
  • Orthodontics
  • Ophthalmic lenses
  • Blood separation systems
  • Dialysis
  • Blood analysis
  • Ventilators
  • Laboratory test equipment
  • Ultrasound equipment
