Silicone Hose, thanks to their unique physical and chemical properties, are widely used in many industries such as: pharmaceutical, biotechnological, medical, food, machine-building, construction, power industry and in many other sectors.
Silicone hose pipe are normally manufactured using hydrogen peroxide cure system or platinum cure system technology. Some highly advanced applications require hoses cured on platinum rods. In order to produce hoses using the peroxide cure system, the hydrogen peroxide catalyst must be added to silicone elastomer, then two components are mixed to obtain smooth, homogeneous mixture. When the platinum cure system is used, two silicone elastomer parts of the same weight must be mixed. One of them contains platinum catalyst and the other contains cross-linking agent.
Available in a selection of different grades and structures, Silicone tubing applications are divided among three broad groups: general-purpose, medical/food grade, and high pressure. All silicone tubes however, do feature silicone’s basic characteristics of excellent thermal qualities, low toxicity, and outstanding flexibility.
