In terms of volume, silica gel is used in the field of medical pipe in the world. The material of silicone braided hose is different from that of PVC pipe. The main material of silicone tube is silica, while PVC is polyvinyl chloride.

The difference between silicone braided hose and PVC hose

  1. They use different materials
  2. They have different application scopes
  3. They are used at different temperatures

Food-grade silicone hose is made of silicone material that meets the requirements of food-grade, and catalytic synthesis is carried out by peroxide to ensure that the hose produced will not fall off. Food silicone hose is suitable for food filling hose, especially for alcohol, beverage, edible oil filling. It has good high temperature resistance, tear resistance and flexibility, and can swing for a long time, so it is also the ideal hose for peristaltic pump.

Silicone tube has good chemical properties, good electrical insulation, weather resistance, environmental protection non-toxic material, colorless and tasteless, and PVC hose has good electrical insulation, good chemical stability, self-extinguishing, and low water absorption, but the use of dibutyl phthalate is toxic.

Silicone tube has ozone aging resistance, weathering resistance, arc resistance, corona resistance and other properties, but its cost is high, often used in rice cookers, disinfection cabinets, water dispensers and other household electrical places.

And their scope of application is different, woven silicone tube is used in aviation, electronics, petroleum, chemical, machinery, electrical, medical, oven, food and other industrial sectors, and PVC pipe is used in building materials, packaging, medicine and many other industries. And silicone tubes are odorless, but PVC has an odor because of additives.

Because of different industries, their use temperature is different, the use temperature of braided silicone tube from -60℃ to 200℃, the delivery temperature of PVC pipe can not exceed 45℃.

The above is the difference between silicone braided pipe and pvc hose. If you think it is useful, please forward it to the friends around you who need it.
