Silicone tubes are items that are often used in production and life. However, many people have some misconceptions about silicone tubes. The blind pursuit of transparency in silicone hose is a common mistake.The transparency of silicone hose, which has a great relationship with the raw material of silicone tube. The use of silicone rubber in the production process is translucent, if it is made into a high transparent silicone tube, it will change the physical structure of silica gel itself, so as to change the parameters of silica gel, which will affect the service life of silicone tube. Identify the quality of clear silicone hose, can be judged from the following aspects. For example: test the elasticity, see the color, smell and so on.


Many people do not hesitate to buy high-transparency silica gel products at high prices, and the results are not good. As a professional silicone tube manufacturer, let’s analyze the relationship between transparency and quality of silicone tube.

What is medical grade silicone made of?

In general, medical grade silicone tubes are more transparent than food grade silicone tubes. Food grade silicone tubes are more transparent than industrial grade silicone tubes. Generally speaking, the higher the transparency, the better the silicone tube, but this is not absolute.

Because the color of  itself is translucent, if it is made into a high transparent silicone hose, it will change the physical structure of the silicone rubber itself, which will change the parameters and ultimately affect the service life of the silicone hose. In theory, it can be very transparent, but this is unrealistic, which is determined by the nature of the silicone rubber material. The silicone tube itself is foggy, unlike other PVC pipes, the transparency is very high. So everyone chooses the silicone hose, or you should choose the right silicone hose according to your actual requirements.
