Sourcing silicone and using it as a bioproof coating.
The title sort of says it all, has anyone found any good source of silicone to use on implants? Applied silicone has a $250 1 lb jar of a long-term implant type IIRC, but a pound seems like a lot for our purposes and that is a bit spendy, anybody know a more fitting solution? I've seen some sources indicating that the main difference between temporary implant grade silicone and the long-term stuff is the liability structure of the companies selling them, does anyone have more knowledge of this? I've even heard of peroxide curing silicones working well for implants at grinder definitions of 'well' (which fall short of medical definitions slightly) before platinum curing silicones were widely available.
So, does anyone have any thoughts? What does Steve Hawarth use?
