Silicone Tube & Hose - Translucent Extruded Glass Reinforced Silicone Hose

Product Code: SILR

Silicone Tube & Hose - Translucent Extruded Glass Reinforced Silicone Hose


A continuously extruded translucent reinforced silicone rubber tubing. Standard reinforcement of glass fibre braiding sandwiched between vulcanised layers of silicone rubber. A working temperature of 220°C is therefore attainable with hot air sterilization to 250°C. Vapour sterilization to 3.8 bar. Every coil is tested to recommended working pressure (Din 20024). Stock bore size range 3.0mm to 25.4mm. Silicone rubber liner material to FDA 177.2600, USP XX/XX1, BGA XV and EP VI.1.3.2 (silicone elastomer for closures and tubing).

Manufacturing Process
Manufactured using minimum quantities of 2,4 dichlorobenzoyl peroxide catalyst specifically for laboratory and medical use. Every effort is made to maintain low Dcba levels following post cure. (Peroxide free, platinum catalyst reinforced tubing can be extruded to minimum order.)
A 200% factor of safety is applied to recommended reinforced tubing working pressures. Working pressures stated are at 20°C, tempertures over 100°C will result in a decrease in working pressure, consult us for further information. Higher working pressure and variation in specification to minimum order

Compound & Material Specifications
Silicone compounds can be engineered to suit a particular requirement or specification, for example, limits of temperature, fire resistance/flamability etc.. High temperature varients can be engineered to 315°C continuous working.
Braid, pitch and gauge varied along with silicone thickness to achieve variation in pressure rating
Glass has an advantage over polyester in that it can achieve continuous temperatures of +200°C. Fibreglass is embedded in between the layers of silicone to create an extremely flexible and strong tube.
Translucent 70 shore is available off the shelf
Smooth inner and outer surface

Note: Variations in colour to BS or RAL spec numbers available to special order. Red, blue and black outer are available in all sizes.
