Why to Consider Quality PVC Hoses

Posted: Saturday, 9 February 2013 by Franklin Borsman in

PVC hose is used for conveyance of chemicals, waste water, drinking water, vacuum system applications, slurries, cooling fluids and heating fluid, compressed air, foodstuffs, gases and ultra-pure liquids. The demand of PVC pipe is a lot all across the globe. Let’s find out the materials used for PVC hose:

  • PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride)
  • ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)
  • PP (polypropylene)
  • UPVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride)
  • PE (polyethylene) also called as HDPE, MDPE and LDPE
  • CPVC (post chlorinated polyvinyl chloride)

Benefits of PVC’s Materials: 

CPVC and UPVC: CPVC is a good material and also resistant to various paraffinic, alcohols, acids, halogens, bases, hydrocarbons and salts. However, it is not resistant to hydrocarbons, solvents, chlorinated and aromatics.

UPVC provides a great chemical resistance all around its operating temperature range. It’s some of the advantages including affordability, high stiffness and long-lasting strength characteristics. These are helpful in plastic hose piping installation and useful for various purposes.

ABS: ABS is used for conveyance of chemicals, slurries and portable water. Generally, it is used for DWV (drain-waste-vent) applications.

PVDF: PVDF is a reliable chemical resistance that means it is extensively used in the chemical industry. 

PE: Polyethylene is a safe way to conveyance of waste and portable water, compressed gases and hazardous.

PP: It is used with ultra pure waters and foodstuffs along with the chemical industry and pharmaceutical.
