The difference between ordinary and platinum cured silicone hose
To put it simply, platinum cured silicone hose is a silicone hose vulcanized with platinum catalyst. It has no odor, high transparency, and is specially used for food contact purposes. It belongs to the highest grade of silicone hoses. Generally, silicone hoses are divided into three categories: industrial grade (ordinary) silicone hoses, medical grade (platinum cured) silicone hoses, and food grade (platinum cured) silicone hoses.
The difference between ordinary silicone hose and platinum cured silicone tubing: ordinary silicone tubing is vulcanized with silica gel and double 2 and 4 vulcanizing agent, which is odorous, easy to process, high in output, and suitable for machinery industry; while platinum cured silicone tubing is silicone and platinum vulcanizing agent. It is vulcanized at the same time, tasteless and non-toxic. Its processing technology is complex, the production output is relatively low, and the production cost is relatively high. It is widely used in food and medical.
With the development of technology, the production level and production process requirements are becoming more and more strict. At present, most of the silicone hoses on the market are non-toxic, odorless, environmentally friendly and pollution-free. They have been strictly tested by SGS, passed RoHS, FDA, biocompatible specification report, etc. Ordinary industrial grade silicone hose is mainly used for special chemical industry such as wire casing, precision instrument, oil pipeline, household appliances, etc., electrical and other special environmental protection carriers. Platinum cured medical or food grade silicone tubings are mainly used for such as: medical grade silicone hose connectors, infusion tubes, medical catheters, small household appliances (coffee pots, kettles, irons, rice cookers, frying pans, disinfection cabinets, water dispensers, fruit pulp machines, bread machines, gas appliances, water heaters, etc.) and other mechanical products. No matter what level it is, it plays a major role in industry and daily life.
