Rubber is considered a relatively common material. Can rubber be used as a fuel pipe? Is the rubble fuel hoses safe? Let's take a look.

What is the best material for rubber fuel hoses?

1、What is rubber?

Rubber refers to a highly elastic polymer material with reversible deformation. It is elastic at room temperature and can produce greater deformation under a small external force. It can return  to its original shape after removing the external force. Rubber is a completely amorphous polymer, its glass transition temperature  is low, and the molecular weight is often very large, more than hundreds of thousands.

Rubber is divided into two types: natural rubber and synthetic rubber. Natural rubber is processed by extracting gum from rubber trees, rubber grass and other plants; synthetic rubber is obtained by polymerization of various monomers. Rubber products are widely used in all aspects of industry or life.

2、Are rubber fuel hoses safe?

The answer is safe, and rubber fuel hoses are usually used. Because the characteristics of rubber tubes have many advantages: UV resistance, ozone resistance, high and low temperature resistance (-80 to 300 degrees), high transparency, strong resilience, compression and permanent deformation, oil resistance, stamping resistance, acid and alkali resistance, and wear resistance, flame resistance, withstand voltage, conductivity and other characteristics. Therefore, in comparison, the use of rubber is quite extensive. But there are certain risks in choosing this material. First of all, sealing is a big problem, because the rubber itself is soft, so there will be slippage at the joint, and then there will be looseness, which leads to leakage. The most frightening thing is that this danger is usually undetectable. Therefore, it is better to use hard materials (such as steel),as the material of the connector. Secondly, the rubber will age for a long time, and the pipeline may be broken and leaked. Therefore, if you want to use it, you must pay attention to regular inspections. However, no matter which materials are used, they have their advantages and disadvantages, so they must be checked regularly. Therefore, in general, rubber fuel pipes are safe, and under certain circumstances it is the most suitable.

3、What is the best material for fuel pipes?

Of course, as I said above, no matter what material has its advantages and disadvantages, the best fuel hose material depends on your needs. However, if the best material for the fuel hose is polytetrafluoroethylene or PTFE. The PTFE fuel line is made of plastic material, which is specifically called Teflon. This fuel line material is impermeable and resists fuel degradation that may form a vapor barrier. But, like anything else, it has its drawbacks. It is inelastic and therefore easy to kink. However, if you use good bending tools when forming bends and curves, you can prevent this.

The rubber fuel hose is safe, but you can choose the one that is more suitable for you. After all, the suitable one is the best.
