During the hose production, there may terrible smell. It will not only cause the hose bad in quality, but also give clients bad purchasing experience and cause clients lose. Worse more, it will damage your brand and enterprise reputation. Then how to eliminate the smell?
Before answering this question, let’s check out why there is terrible smell first. There will be smell during the process of raw rubber, vulcanizer, accelerant and rubber oil. The smell is especially appears in the vulcanization. The vulcanized rubber which take organic peroxides as cross-linking agent has smell, especially the DCP vulcanized rubber. DCP is odourless it self, but there will be other low-molecular substances appear like acetone, butanol and acetophenone, in which acetophenone has terrible smell and hard to volatilize, then makes the hose smell terrible.
In another hand, some fraudulent supplier produce the hose with bad materials. It will not only cause the the hose smell terrible, but also cause the hose bad in quality.
Knowing the reasons that caused hose smell terrible, we can take the following measures to eliminate it. First of all, always use the high quality raw material like OrientFlex. This is the most effective way to reduce terrible smell. When treating rubber, fluororubber or EPDM, you can vulcanize the hose once again by using a drier to discharge the low-molecular substances and then reduce the smell.
Besides, you can use rubber deodorant. When choose deodorant, check the temperature resistance because the temperature is very high during the rubber hose production process. If the deodorant can’t resist high temperature, it will lose efficacy in the high temperature processing. A good rubber deodorant is nontoxic and has good temperature resistance, long aging, small demand and will not release the terrible smell after adsorbing. It can effectively reduce the chemical stimulation and will not affect the hose in the meantime.
