There are many kinds of silicone hoses, which are very common in life, including braided silicone hoses and transparent silicone hoses. However, as an ordinary user, it is not clear what is the difference between the two types of silicone hoses, apart from distinguishing the appearance of the silicone hoses. Let's take a look at the similarities and differences between these two silicone hoses.
Transparent silicone tubing: It is made of imported silicone raw material and is extruded. Transparent silicone tubing are generally used to transport certain organic solvents and corrosive liquids. It is commonly used as a food filling device, supporting hoses and peristaltic pumps to transport liquids. Transparent silicone tubing is widely used in hygienic pharmaceuticals, food filling and industrial applications.
Braided silicone tubing: It is made of imported food hygiene-grade silicone material and processed by platinum vulcanization. The hose complies with U.S. food hygiene regulations and can be used for a long time in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Widely used in food, wine, beverages, dairy products, cosmetics, toothpaste, fine chemicals, medicine, hygiene
bioengineering and other industries.
In short, the raw materials used in both are natural silica gel raw materials, but the production processes are very different. The transparent silicone tube is produced by extrusion, and the braided silicone tube should be secondary vulcanized by platinum vulcanization to ensure the fusion of the hose wall and the braided wire, and the silicone braided tube has a much higher compression resistance than transparent silicone tube.
