UPE Lined Chemical Rubber Hose

We (Shandong Hesper Rubber Plastic Co., Ltd.) produce and supply various of rubber hoses, flexible metal hoses, expansion joints, polyurethane products and related products. In the chemical industry, factory production often transports or absorbs acidic and alkaline chemical solvents, or materials such as petroleum, so acid and alkali resistant, corrosion resistant, or oil resistant chemical resistant hoses are required as the conveying medium. At present,our UPE lined chemical rubber hose is the most widely used acid and alkali resistant hose in the industry is made of UPE (Ultra High Molecular Polyethylene) material.


What is UPE material? Why we choose UPE lined in our rubber hose?

UPE is the English abbreviation of ultra-high molecular polyethylene. UPE lined rubber hose is a hose with many excellent properties, its density is lower than that of water, has more wear resistance than some metals. It is a new material that replaces steel with plastic. The following briefly introduces its main properties:

1. Abrasion resistance: Among all the current hose materials, the wear resistance of UPE material is in the forefront. When it comes to UPE material hose, people will first think of its wear resistance, because UPE with a molecular weight of 1.5 million The wear resistance is very impressive, and what is even more gratifying is that the higher the molecular weight, the more wear-resistant the material is, and it can even exceed many metal materials (such as carbon steel, stainless steel, bronze, etc.).


2. Aging resistance: UPE has stable performance and good aging resistance.

3. Impact resistance: The impact resistance is the best among all plastics. Whether it is a strong external impact or internal pressure fluctuations, it is difficult to crack the UPE material. Its impact strength is 10 times that of nylon 66, 20 times that of polyvinyl chloride, and 8 times that of polytetrafluoroethylene;

4. Very low coefficient of friction: The static friction coefficient of UPE material is 0.07, which has good self-lubricating property. The self-lubricating performance of UPE is equivalent to polytetrafluoroethylene, but its wear resistance and impact resistance are several times that of it.

5. Corrosion resistance: UPE is not corroded in lye, can be used in concentrated acid at 80°C, and has stable performance in 75% concentrated acid and 20% Xiao acid. It is also very good for seawater and liquid detergent Stable.

6. Hygienic, non-toxic, odorless, and non-adhesive: UPE is odorless, non-toxic, odorless, non-corrosive, and has physiological inertia and physiological adaptability.

7. Small density and light weight: It greatly reduces the consumption of manpower and material resources in the installation process, and reduces the construction cost.

8. No water absorption: because the water absorption index of UPE is almost zero.

Among the properties introduced above,UPE has obvious advantages compared with other plastics in terms of its wear resistance, impact resistance, non-adhesion, corrosion resistance, and extremely low temperature resistance, we make UPE lined rubber hose,it combines the advantages of UPE and rubber into one, it is suitable for various chemical transportation applications.
