The service life of silicone hoses

Oct 14, 2019

The service life of silicone hoses has always been a concern for us. The first step is to understand the basic physical and chemical properties of silicone products. Silicone rubber is a new type of polymer icing material, has excellent high temperature and low temperature resistance, has good physiological stability, and can withstand repeated harsh and disinfection conditions, with excellent elasticity and permanent deformation small, ozone-resistant, UV-resistant, radiation-resistant and so on.

The reasons for the aging of silicone hoses: mainly oxygen, oxides, ozone, heat, light, radiation, mechanical fatigue, the lack of processing process. The effect of ozone is strengthened, the chemical activity of ozone is strong, the destructive ness of silicone hose will increase, it breaks the molecular chain, and ozone mainly acts on the deformation of silicone rubber to produce ozone cracking phenomenon. Oxidation is also an aspect of silicone aging, oxygen in rubber with silicone molecules aging role, molecular chain break, causing changes in silicone performance. In addition, silicone in the sun, humidity, rain or soaked in water will accelerate the aging of silicone hoses. This can seriously affect the life of silicone hoses.

If you want to extend the use of silicone hose, you need to adjust the use of the environment, to minimize light heat, moisture, oxidation, ozone and other environments, if there is no way to change the environment need to use hose protective sleeve. If the silicone hose fitting is not properly installed, bending over high, also reduces the life of the silicone tube.

If you can do the above points, the use of silicone hose can be greatly extended, in the normal use of the environment, silicone hose life can reach more than 10 years.
