SilcoNert 2000 is precisely the same inert coating as Siltek®, by Restek. The company that does the deactivation for us is SilcoTek®, a spin-off of Restek, and run by Restek’s long time “head coach”, Paul Silvis. SilcoNert 2000 is the most popular deactivation coating in analytical chemistry, and for good reason.   SilcoNert 2000 deactivation works with acidic and basic compounds, chlorinated and organo-phorphorous pesticides, ammonia and nitrogen oxide compounds, organo-sulfur compounds, even mercury, so there is no need to swap out liners for compatibility with differential sample chemistry.   SilcoNert 2000 deactivation is more effective than other deactivation chemistries,...
