Some people think that silicone hose oil resistant, and some people think that silicone hoses are not oil-resistant, so whether they are oil-resistant. Today I will share the answer with you.
Firstly,The silicone hose is not oil-resistant,Silicone hoses are porous. That’s why you don’t use silicone for fuels and oils. The material of this tube is relatively good, and the practicality of this tube is relatively high, and the scope of application is relatively wide.
Secondly, the silicone tube is a complex of silica and water, which is an inorganic substance, so it will not have similar compatibility with the engine oil, and will not cause the silicone tube to age.
Third, the oil resistance of silicone is still good. Some parts of the power system in foreign countries need to be sealed, oil and high temperature resistance. They used to be seals, but now they are all changed to silicone seals, but it depends on your actual needs. What is the oil like? If the requirements are too high, you can only find the manufacturer to customize the silicone hose.
Six advantages of silicone tube:
1. Silicone hose is colorless, odorless and non-toxic, and is widely used in the medical industry;
2. It has the characteristics of high and low temperature resistance and oil resistance;
3. It has excellent electrical insulation properties, aging resistance, chemical stability, oxidation resistance and weather resistance, and radiation resistance.
4. It has physiological inertia, good air permeability, high and low temperature resistance, can be used for a long time at -60 ° C ~ 250 ° C, has excellent high temperature resistance (250-300 ° C) and low temperature resistance (-40-60 ° C) performance, has good Physiological stability.
5. The operating temperature range of silicone rubber can be from -100°C to 350°C. It has excellent thermal oxygen aging resistance, ozone aging resistance, light aging resistance and weather aging resistance; it has good electrical insulation.
6. Silicone tubes are widely used in modern industry, defense industry and daily necessities. Conductive silicone rubber that can be used in the electronics industry, can be widely used in aviation, electronics, petroleum, chemical industry, machinery, electrical appliances, medical, ovens, food and other industrial sectors, good electrical insulation sealing, liquid conveying materials.
To sum up. Silicone hoses are not oil resistant.OrientFlex is a technology-based company with the expertise to explore, develop, design and test silicone hose products.
