First of all, silicone is a rubber material, PVC is a plastic material, PVC pipe main material is polyvinyl chloride, silica gel pipe main material is silica.
1.PVC pipe is made of polyvinyl chloride resin, stabilizer, lubricant, etc., and then pressed with hot-pressing injection molding machine. The main performance, electrical insulation; good chemical stability; can be extinguished; low water absorption; easy to stick Then, the highest temperature can be about 40 °. The main appliances are industrial gases, liquids, etc., domestic sewer pipes, water pipes, etc. Environmental issues: Additives such as plasticizers and antioxidants are toxic. Daily plasticizers in PVC plastics mainly use dibutyl terephthalate and dioctyl phthalate, etc. Products are toxic.
2. Silicone tubing, silicone material with stable chemical properties, except alkali, hydrofluoric acid does not react with any chemical substances, good chemical properties, good electrical insulation properties, not easy to aging weather, soft material up to 330 degrees to - About 40 degrees, environmental protection non-toxic materials, colorless and odorless, mainly all household products. Pipes for living use will be made of silicone materials, mainly used in household appliances, medical industry, industrial industry, automotive industry and so on.
