Chemical Resistant Hose/Tubing
Many customers transfer chemicals in their applications, but they are quite not sure whether or not their hose or tube is suitable for their applications.
The chemical resistance varies depending on the hose material (type of resin). At present, if the hose is deteriorated in a short period of time, such as hardening, swelling, or discoloration, it is time to consider reviewing the hose/tube.
The frequency of hose change will also decrease if the hose/tube suitable for fluid (chemical solution) is selected.
The below picture shows before and after MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone) is transferred.
When you check the chemical resistance of our products, please refer to the chemical resistance data.
If the chemicals used may be the name of the product or the mixture, and may not be listed in our chemical resistance data, please contact us from below. We can also provide a hose sample for chemical inclusion test.
Current Problem: Low Duration of the Hose Situations: Company A has been using a PVC hose for transporting water-based paints. However, they have to replace into a new hose frequently, which reduces the efficiency of production.
