The Positive Impact Of Silicone Hoses

Posted

Silicone hoses are playing a part in the fight against climate change!

Climate change is at the forefront of most people’s minds — between rising sea levels, shrinking glaciers, and the disruption of when plants and flowers bloom — these major changes are affecting our planet. And, at the end of the day, it’s not new.

While we’re all trying to do better by reducing our impact, sometimes it’s the little things that can compound and play a role. At Flex Technologies, we make USA-made silicone hoses that are eco-friendly! Learn more about their positive impact today!

The Unlikely Ally: Silicone Hoses

When you think about eco-friendly things, electric cars and solar panels often come to mind, but silicone hoses are right up there — they’re just a product that is more behind-the-scenes than anything, but switching your industry to them may be a really important and impactful switch.

Silicone Hoses And Emissions

One of the insidious contributors to climate change are the greenhouse gases (GHG) that we generate. Gases such as nitrous oxide, methane, and carbon dioxide have risen to unprecedented levels with the burning of fossil fuels like gas, oil, and coal and in transportation.

One small change to reduce our impact would be to eliminate the uptick in human-generated emissions. Measures and innovations to tackle climate change are ever-evolving — from renewable energy sources to being less dependent on fossil fuels — people and companies are taking steps to be more eco-friendly.

Inherently, silicone hoses are eco-friendly and can help the transportation industry and emissions in combating climate change.

How can silicone hoses help in climate change?

A majority of us still drive vehicles that require gasoline, and while the automotive industry is making small strides in making electric cars affordable and available for everyone, it’s still a way off into the future. But, you can begin to make modifications to your own personal vehicle or in the equipment you operate by switching to silicone hoses.

Because silicone hoses have unique physical properties, they are the material of choice for vehicles and heavy machinery such as construction equipment. Silicone hoses can withstand extremely high and hot temperatures needed under the hood.

Because they can handle this heat output, the system can better clean the air, thus reducing emissions. Silicone hoses are also extremely durable and long-lasting, which means you won’t have to replace them as often compared to traditional rubber hoses and this equates to less waste!

Start Small, Choose Silicone Hoses

Silicone hoses have applications in a wide variety of industries from construction to consumer goods and they have the leading benefits and high performance that is required. Imagine the impact if every vehicle and heavy-duty piece of equipment was replaced with silicone hoses? This might be a good place for every industry to start. And sure, you may not be able to control a lot of things, but using silicone hoses is a very tangible solution to making your practices more eco-friendly.
