Plastic hose is a new type of pore-forming material. It is made of synthetic resin and additives. Plastic hose is a high grade transparent material. its light transmittance is better than inorganic glass, which is above 92%. The UV reaches 73% and the refractive index is 1.491. While the relative density is 1.19, which is just the half of ordinary glass in weight. The inner and outer of clear plastic hose are both corrugated.
Features of plastic hose
Plastic can resist acid, alkali and solvent. Besides, it has a PVC rigid helix. Thus it can prevent the external impact. While it is also wear proof. The inner tube is smooth. Thus it can ensure a smooth medium flow. In addition, it can resist UV, ozone and aging. Thus it is ideal for outdoor use with a long service life.
Plastic hose is light in weight with small water loss. Besides, it is flexible and easy to install. Thus it is more and more popular. Compared with metal pipe, plastic hose costs less with less pollution. Thus the government thinks high of it.
