PVC welding hose has some level of heat and flame resistance. But note that the resistance may be limited compared to the hoses for high temp or flame proof purpose.
PVC welding hose can bear the heat and flame during the welding work. Besides, it resists the immediate effects of spark, molten metal and moderate exposure to flames. This resistance helps ensure the safety of the hose and the welder during welding operations.
However, it’s essential to be aware of the temp limit of PVC material. PVC has a relatively low melting point compared to others like rubber. Excessive heat or prolong exposure to high temp can cause the PVC material to soften, deform or even melt.
For high temp apps or more intensive flame exposure, you have to choose a special hose. Silicone hose can work at much higher temps in general. While it can work at max 260℃. Besides, Teflon hose is also an ideal choice. Because it is the king of plastic. It can also bear high temp.
PVC welding hose can bear certain temp. But be aware that it can not bear too much high temp. When doing the welding work, make sure the work is safe. Because any problem may cause serious hazards.
