  • Fiberglass
    • Leno weave
    • 3 ply continuous filament yarn
    • 8.0 oz. per square yard
    • 0.0175 Gauge
    • 150 lb. Tensile
    • Temperature surpasses all silicone capabilities
  • Aramid Fibers
    • Plain weave
    • 30/2 spun continuous filament yarn
    • 2.85 oz. per square yard
    • 0.012 Gauge
    • 90 lb. Tensile
    • Aramid fiber surpasses the 550° F silicone capability with superior cut and tear resistance

Since silicone offers longer service life compared to material such as EPDM and other organic compounds, our silicone hoses will give you years – and miles – of service.  Our quality driven manufacturing processes ensure that you receive hoses with high resistance to compression set, exhibit good burst strength and excellent kink and vacuum resistance.

Temperature Resistance

Silicone hose from Vip Rubber and Plastic exhibits exceptional temperature resistance of up to 350° F (max) and up to 550° F when using polyester or aramid fibers.  And even under the most extreme temperatures our product retains excellent physical properties and abrasion resistance. They can even maintain dynamic flexibility in temperatures as low as -65° F.

Chemical and Weather Resistance

When you need hoses that can withstand the assault of regular chemical and weather conditions, Vip Rubber and Plastics silicone hoses offer superior performance with resistance to a large variety of common chemicals including heavy water and water-soluble detergents, ethylene glycol (anti-freeze), vegetable oil, potassium chloride, sodium hydroxide, natural gas and vegetable oil.  

Our silicone hoses are also weather and ozone resistant and offer high resistance to the effects of sunlight and ozone, rainwater and other gasses that can weather other hoses.  They can even perform in both extremes of dry and moist conditions as our silicone hoses can resist moisture in damp and humid environments as well as maintain performance characteristics in dry high sunlight environments.
