In our daily life and production activity, we need a variety of hoses to deliver fluid. At home, we need water pipe to supplier cold and hot water. We also need a garden hose to water the plants and wash the car. While in industry, we need various industrial hoses like chemical hose and water hose for production. However, there are hoses with various materials on the market. And there are silicone hose, latex hose, rubber hose, etc. Then which one is too choose?
First, let’s learn the difference among silicone hose, latex hose and rubber hose
Such pipe is ideal for liquid, gas and other materials. Silicone hose pipe is light in weight, flexible and elastic. Besides, it can work at high temp up to 230℃. What’s more, it
Latex hoses are the tubes of different thicknesses made of latex material. They are mainly used in hospital, factory, power plant, scientific research lab and other fields.
Rubber hose is resistant to UV, ozone, high and low temp, oil, acid and alkali. Besides, it resists wear and voltage. In fact, silicone tube is also a type of rubber tube.
Since silicone hose is a branch of rubber pipe, let’s compare rubber tubing and latex tube.
Latex tube has good elasticity. Generally, the pulling force range can be 6-9 times of itself. And the resilience is 100%. Rubber pipe is a suction pipe with oil , acid and alkali resistance. Besides, it can bear high pressure and heat. It widely serves in in industry, mining and suction of liquid and gas.
Latex tubes are ideal for hospital, factory, power plant, etc. Rubber pipes are mainly used in industry and agriculture. Latex tubes are not resistant to oxidation and corrosion. But rubber hose has such properties. Thus rubber tube has a wider range of usage.
