Silicone tube is still very common in many industries, and the types of silicone tubes are very many, common are: medical silicone tube, food grade silicone tube, industrial silicone tube, silicone shaped tube, silicone tube fittings and so on.
Each type of silicone tube is also used in different places. For example, medical silicone tubes are mainly used for medical purposes, such as medical equipment accessories and medical catheters. Medical silicone tubes generally adopt bacteriostatic design and are safer. Food grade silicone tube is mainly used in some inlet things, such as: water dispenser water pipe, drinking cup straws, diversion pipe and so on. Industrial silica gel tube is mainly used in industry, special type silica gel tube which is customized according to customer needs. Silicone tube fittings that use more.
Like automobile silicone tube, food grade silicone tube can not avoid the use of high temperature in the case of silicone tube, so how many degrees of high temperature can the silicone tube withstand?
Silicone hose is a new kind of polymer elastic material production. It has excellent resistance to high temperature (250 ~ 300°C) and low temperature (-40 ~-60°C). With good physiological stability, can withstand repeated disinfection, ozone resistance, ultraviolet resistance, radiation resistance. The general temperature resistance range of the ordinary silicone tube is -40~200°C, and the range of the special high-temperature resistant tube can reach -60~300°C. It is generally not recommended to use the silicone tube at high temperature for a long time. Even if the silicone tube is durable and used at high temperature for a long time, the service life of the silicone tube will be reduced. Normally, the silicone tube can be used for about ten years at room temperature.
