How Long Do Your Silicone Hoses Last?

Silicone is a very durable and extremely strong material, especially when compared to rubber hoses. They can last for years, even decades, with the proper care. Depending on your usage, you can expect your silicone hoses to last about four years with high use.


Why Silicone Hoses?

Silicone hoses are popular in many industries for a variety of reasons, one of them being their versatility and hundreds of applications. They can hold cold and hot liquids, handle extreme temperatures, and bend to your desired space.


How Are Silicone Hoses Made?

Silicone hoses are made from silicone rubber, paints, and fabrics. The materials are pressed together into sheets and then cut and rolled. These silicone sheets are then molded into their desired shape. They are trimmed, inspected, and then cleaned for shipping to our customers.
