About rubber tubing and hose
Silicone tubing has long been used for car. Another of silicone’s major features — resistance to extreme temperature variations — has enabled its use in applications where a flexible tubing is needed to handle temperatures not possible with other plastics or rubbers.
A rubber-like thermoset material, silicone tubing and hose is extremely pliable and elastic, and it is not altered by the effects of weather. It generally exhibits inertness toward U.V., radiation, and ozone making it an excellent choice for electrically-associated applications.
Latex natural rubber tubing has been extensively in the health care industry for many years. From there it has expanded into the food, toy, instrumentation, and sporting goods fields.
Known for its extreme flexibility, latex is among the most flexible and elastic rubber materials in use today. Resiliency is another quality of latex tubing, allowing it to maintain memory after repeated bending, stretching, of pulsating forces.
Latex also withstands repeated sterilization with either steam, Ethylene Oxide, or gamma radiation. There are no added plasticizers, coagulants, or fillers to migrate and contaminate the stream or cause tube hardening.
TPR (Thermoplastic Rubber) combines the processability of plastics with the flexibility and durability of rubbers. Typically more light weight and formable than rubber, TPR has been growing in acceptance for many applications over the last decade.
TPR provides outstanding compression characteristics, making it an ideal fit for use with peristaltic pumps. The material also offers excellent resistance to flex fatigue and tear. It maintains good flexibility to temperatures approaching -80°F.
