Santoprene® is a proprietary type of thermoplastic rubber elastomer, manufactured by Advanced Elastomer Systems L.P. Santoprene® is a polyolefinic material, produced by a proprietary dynamic vulcanization which produces rubber particles dispersed throughout a continuous matrix of thermoplastic.. This material combines the performance characteristics of vulcanized rubber and the processing ease of thermoplastics. Santoprene® has properties that make it very tolerant of temperatures, chemicals and environmental abrasion. Santoprene® is available in a range of hardnesses. The most popular hardness grade for small-bore peristaltic pump use is 64 Shore A. This gives the best combination of easy occlusion and good material recovery for effective long-life pumping. Other grades are available for alternative applications. Medical grades of Santoprene® have a DMF file lodged with the US FDA, and are approved to USP Class.
