There are many kinds of silicone tubes, and they are common in life, including woven silicone tubes and clear silicone tubes. However, as a general user, it is not clear what is the difference between the two types of silicone tubes other than the appearance that distinguishes them. Let’s take a look at the similarities and differences between the two silicone tubes.
Transparent silicone tube: made of imported silica gel raw material, by extrusion processing. Transparent silica gel tubes are generally used to transport some organic solvents and corrosive liquids. It is commonly used as a food filling device, supporting hoses and peristaltic pumps to deliver liquids. Transparent silicone tubes are widely used in sanitary drugs, food filling and industrial applications.
Braided silicone hose: Imported food hygienic silica gel raw materials, platinum vulcanization processing. The hose complies with the US food hygiene regulations and can be used in the food and pharmaceutical industry for a long time. Widely used in food, wine, beverage, dairy products, cosmetics, toothpaste, fine chemicals, medicine, health and bioengineering and other industries.
In short, the raw materials used in both are natural silica gel raw materials, but the production process is very different. Transparent silica gel tube is produced by extrusion method, and braided silica gel tube should be vulcanized twice by platinum sulfide to ensure the fusion of hose wall and braided line, and the pressure resistance of silica gel braided tube is much higher than that of transparent silicone tube.
