In our daily life and production, we often see some hoses and pipes. While most of them are PVC hose or PE hose. In fact, both of them are the great materials for us. But which of is better? Then let me show you next.
Comparison of hygienic performance of PVC hose and PE hose
PVC pipe can be as hygienic and non-toxic as PE pipe. The most common misunderstanding about plastic products is the so-called “toxic and non-toxic” issue. PVC may be one of the deeper one. In science, for plastic products there is no question of toxic and non-toxic. But there is a question of general plastic and food hygiene grade plastic. In fact, most of the plastics are non-toxic. Thus they can be food packaging and medical supply. While they even be used to make human body parts like bones and organs.
PVC products can be both general grade and food grade. Food hygiene grade PVC products have strict requirements on the content of heavy metal in additive and vinyl chloride monomer (vcm) in PVC. But this does not mean that general grade PVC products are toxic. It just means that it is not suitable for use in the field of food hygiene. Not to mention that some people think that it can not be used and touched. In general, processed PE has fewer additives and are hygienic and non-toxic. While the controversy over PVC stems from these two aspects.
Both PVC and PE are eco-friendly materials. And you can recycle and reuse both of them.
