Automotive silicone hoses are used to transport gas and liquid silicone rubber products. They are composed of inner and outer rubber layers and a skeleton layer. The skeleton layer materials can be polyester cloth, aramid cloth, polyester cloth, etc. So what solvents are suitable for silicone hoses? Today, the orientflex silicone hose manufacturer will answer for you.
Generally, the characteristics of silicone hoses are similar to those of ordinary food-grade silicone rubber hoses or industrial silicone rubber hoses. However, due to the application of medical silicone rubber hoses in medicine, there are special requirements for certain aspects of silicone hoses in different situations.
Will Automotive silicone hoses hold up to brake fluid?
First of all, the silicone hose is suitable for the following solvents: weak corrosive drugs, acetaldehyde reagents, animal and vegetable oils, glucose, alcohol, hand sanitizer, blood, weak alkaline gases and other solvents. Not suitable for organic solvents such as high-concentration sulfuric acid, hydrochloric acid, sodium hydroxide, nitric acid, lubricating oil, silicone oil, mineral oil, gasoline, diesel oil, hydraulic oil, carbon tetrachloride and high-concentration ozone.
In short, if the silicone hose needs potion, and the potion has a certain acidity and alkalinity, the hose needs to be resistant to hydrochloric acid. If the medical silicone rubber hose needs to be sterilized with alcohol before use, it needs to be resistant to alcohol. If ozone is used for disinfection, the silicone hose must have a certain amount of ozone resistance.
