What are silicone hoses?

As an important part of the car, the automotive silicone tube is distributed in the engine, chassis and body, and other parts, and plays the role of transporting oil, gas, water, and power transmission, and the safety and performance of the car.

 

What are the characteristics of silicone hose?

The following are the characteristics of a silicone hose:

1. Silicone hose is strong and durable:

Silicone is very strong, which means it can be more durable than rubber when used to make hoses. While you might pay more for silicone hose, the material’s long life ensures it’s a worthwhile and cost-effective investment.

2. Silicone hose is resistant to cracking:

Silicone is more resistant to cracking, cracking, or rotting than rubber. This makes it a very reliable and flexible option.

3. Silicone hoses deal with temperature fluctuations:

Silicone can withstand pressure and extreme temperatures. This means it won’t get hot or crack under pressure. In fact, silicone hose can be exposed to hotter liquids than rubber. If you need a turbocharged engine or racing hose, choosing a material that can withstand the heat is critical.

4. High-performance silicone hose:

Research shows that silicone hose has stable performance and excellent performance, and is a reliable choice for vehicles with high-performance requirements.

How to make silicone hose?

 

Get all raw materials to mix
In this case, manufacturers need to reinforce fabrics, silicone rubber, pigments
Silicone hose has several layers made of various materials. The type of material used for each layer will ultimately determine the quality and strength.
Pour the color pigments into the silicone rubber. It takes a while for the compound to change its original color.

Calendering
Because the substance is spread under a roller press. Here, the machine will go through the compound and turn it into a flake, which ensures an even consistency across the sheet.

Shape
First, install the correct mold, put the prepared material into the mold according to the number of layers requested by the customer, and do the same cycle.

Package
The wrapping process involves wrapping tape around each hose to ensure the hose is fully covered. This packaging gives the hose a glossy finish.

Vulcanization
All our silicone tubes are placed in a vulcanization box for high-temperature vulcanization, and the vulcanization is completed after cooling, and the silicone tubes are taken out of the mold.

Prune
The end of each hose is secured on a lathe, using a sharp blade at high speed each hose is then trimmed to provide a razor-sharp clean finish.
After cutting you can clearly see how much of the inner layer is.

Detect
We also have 3D inspection tools that are more precise. Every hose is handcrafted and inspected if our quality control team finds any defects or incorrect construction. After all silicone hoses pass the quality test, they are ready to enter the market.

Finished Product
Manufactured from high gloss, high-quality performance silicone hoses, our products adhere to the strict product quality standards of ISO 9001 and IATF 16949.
We are experts in silicone hoses for unmatched quality and service. Manufactured to the highest specifications and subject to strict quality control, our automotive hoses are extremely reliable.

 

Will Silicone Hoses Improve Engine Performance?

The answer is yes
Silicone has better heat and UV resistance than rubber. Silicone rubber is a very stable material that can withstand extreme temperatures and resist hardening, cracking and rot. If for some reason the hoses don’t properly cool the engine, your vehicle will have trouble running. With silicone hoses, you can make sure the coolant stays safe inside the pipes. It will definitely improve the performance of the engine.
