I don't know the answer to your question but I ask you this: do you have reason to believe that regular old hardware store silicone sealant will not be suitable for your application?

Why in the world are you asking this question on the Internet? If you are working with medical devices that interface directly with bodily fluids and patients, surely there are regulations for what kinds of materials can be used. Doesn't your company have people who know this information?

I suggest you call the manufacturer's representative for the companies that make these sealants. They should be able to give you knowledgeable advice. Thread is closed.
