PVC clear hose has many advantages when compared with other materials such as rubber, silicone and PU.
PVC clear hose is more cheap than rubber hose, silicone hose or PU hose. Thus it’s an economic choice for many apps. In another hand, low cost makes you can use it in bulk.
PVC clear hose is transparent and clear. Thus you can clearly watch the medium flowing inside it. In some special apps, it’s a necessary demand.
Light in weight
PVC clear hose is light in weight and easy to handle. Thus you can transfer it easily. Besides, the install and recycle are also simple. Therefore, you can save much time.
PVC clear hose offers good chemical resistance to many common chemicals and fluids. Include acid, alkali and some petrol products.
Such hose is more durable and can bear repeated flex and bend without crack or degrade.
Tempe and pressure resistant
PVC clear hose has moderate temp and pressure resistance. Thus it’s suitable for many general purpose apps.
Some PVC clear hoses are designed to resist the effects of UV. Thus they are more suitable for outdoor apps.
In comparison, rubber hose offers higher temp and pressure resistance than PVC clear hose. But it’s more heavier and more expensive. Silicone hose offers higher temp resistance than PVC clear hoses.
