We know that in the vehicle pipelines, there are rubber hose, metal hose and nylon hose. Today we mainly introduce the nylon hose. Nylon hose is suitable for air brake hose, vehicle flexible shaft hose, oil hose and fuel hose. Besides, the seven core wire covered with nylon hose is the main circuit connector in all kinds of tractors, semitrailers, trailers and pallet carriers.
What makes nylon hose popular in vehicle?
Nylon hose is widely used in vehicles because its great properties.
Nylon hose has excellent resistance to petroleum, diesel, lubricant and many kinds of lipid. Besides, the chemical resistance is great.
Low-temperature impact resistant
PA-11 can resist -50℃ low-temperature impact, while PA-12 resists -40℃ low-temperature impact.
The temperature range is -40℃-125℃ for PA-11, while it’s -40℃-105℃ for PA-12. After the aging resistance test in 125℃ for 1000 hours and in 150℃ for 16 hours, PA-11 still has excellent low-temperature impact resistance.
Chemical and corrosion resistant
Nylon hose can resist 50% zinc chloride fluid over 200 hours. Besides, nylon can resist the corrosion from alkali, salt, petroleum, chemical solvent, sea air and water based hydraulic fluid. What’s more, it can inhibit the grow and reproduction of fungus and germ.
Ultraviolet and aging resistant
The ultraviolet resistance could last 2-8 years according to different areas. But the ultraviolet resistance for black hoes that add UV absorbent could be 4 times than the normal nylon hose.
Compared with the metal hose, nylon hose is light in weight. The density of nylon hose is 1.01-1.06g/m3, so the weight is just 1/7 of metal hose. Besides, you never have to worry about the rust. Another important thing is that nylon hose is much cheaper than metal hose.
Besides above excellent properties, nylon hose is also abrasion, vibration and fatigue resistant. OrientFlex is a professional manufacturer and export of hoses. Besides nylon hose in vehicle, we offer you pneumatic nylon hose used in driller and other pneumatic tools. Inquiry now and we will offer you a reasonable quotation.
