The silicone hose have many applications in automotive.
Fluids need to be transported throughout your car for it to keep running and for the engine to stay cool and lubricated. Also, heated and cooled air needs to finds its way into the passenger compartment.
The silicone hose could keep your car engine and other important systems running. That’s because silicone is the preferred medium for many of the hoses connecting the various working parts that make up your car.
Here below are the main benefits of the silicone hose.
l Flexibility And Resilience
l Life Expectancy
l Operating Temperature Range
l Noise And Vibration Control
1.Flexibility And Resilience
Silicone hoses benefit from superior flexibility. They’re flexible enough to fit in tight spaces.There’s not much room in an engine, and very little room inside the vehicle’s body and frame. To be able to fit connector hoses in these cramped spaces, it’s important for the hose to be flexible enough for bending without snapping.
And the advantage of super flexibility can reduce the risk that your hoses will split, harden, or become dry rotted. Whether for general automotive use, or in manufacturing and industrial applications, they’re a great choice when you need to connect parts and systems but there’s just not very much room to do so.
Silicone hoses for liquids and other liquids are very important. Silicone hose is well fixed and corroded by excessive force or vibration, aging, physical pressure, frequency, high temperature and common chemicals.
With the performance of flexibility and resilience, it’s no wonder that silicone hoses are the preferred tubing medium of choice for a wide range of automotive applications.
2. Life Expectancy
Silicone hoses last practically forever and might outlast than your cardue to their inherent heat ageing resilience. Silicone hoses have an excellent heat ageing resistance and remain in excellent working order for years.
We offer a lifetime warranty for all our branded hoses if used for the correct application.
3. Operating Temperature Range
One of the other main reasons people prefer silicone hose is the operating temperature, silicone has superior heat tolerance, not only do silicone coolant hoses work well for standard automobile engines, they’re also great for huge diesel trucks and massive heavy equipment.
If you replace the standard hose by silicone hose, it doesn’t expand and get hot under pressure. Silicone hoses are capable of carrying fluids at much higher temperatures than rubber. If you’re building a racing vehicle or adding a turbocharger to your engine, silicone is the way to go.
Different types of silicone hoses serve different purposes; there are certain hoses that are designed and built specifically to withstand super high temperatures. Many silicone hose products can easily handle up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit( 200 degree centigrade), even for continuous operation.
Specialty hoses can tolerate temperatures as high as 500 degrees Fahrenheit( 260 degree centigrade). This is very useful in the hot environment of a car engine.
4. Noise And Vibration Control
Silicone has a good ability to dampen sounds and vibrations, keeping a quiet and stable profile.
Silicone is the best material choice for performance-enhanced vehicles. If you add a nice turbocharger to your engine, you’ll get some great power, but if you forget to upgrade your hoses at the same time, you will possibly drive all that extra heat into hoses that aren’t equipped to handle it.
The silicone tube comes in a smooth glossy surface in bright red, orange and black. The colors available in the silicone tube series are often popular with car lovers. The bright blue and red pipes can actually start the engine. But if you don't like the gorgeous interior, the silicone hose is also available in black.
