Large diameter PVC layflat hose is a great hose for water transfer in many apps. But you should aware that it has temp limit. As a plastic hose, PVC lay flat hose can not bear too much high temp. But some flat hoses can work at higher temp because they have special formula or structure. While let me show you the temp limit of lay flat hose next.
PVC layflat hose can become stiff and less flexible at low temp. As a result, it may be more prone to crack or damage when exposed to extreme cold. While the special low-temp limit can vary. But you’d better use the PVC hose above 0℃.
PVC layflat hose can also not bear high temp. Because over heat can cause the PVC to soften, deform, or even melt. Then lead to hose failure. The high-temp limit is about 65℃. Thus you should use it to transfer water within 65℃.
No matter what you use the hose for, you have to consider the temp limit. If your app involves extreme temp such as in hot climate or near heat source, you need a special hose. While this hose should can bear high temp. For example, rubber hose or silicone hose.
