Synthetic Rubber Hose Widely Used Of Its Elasticity And Toughness
Synthetic rubber is rubber manufactured by a chemical process from petroleum and other chemicals rather than the product of raw rubber extracted from a natural rubber tree.
Synthetic Rubber HoseSynthetic rubber is any type of artificially made polymer material which acts as an elastomer. An elastomer is a material with the mechanical property that it can undergo much more elastic deformation under stress than most materials and still return to its previous size without permanent deformation. Synthetic rubber serves as a substitute for natural rubber in many cases, especially when improved material properties are needed.
Natural rubber breaks down when exposed to oil, which spells frequent maintenance for natural rubber used in tires and in motor parts. The synthetic rubber holds air 13 times better than natural rubber and is excellent at resisting aging, weathering, chemicals, moisture, ozone, extreme temperatures and tearing.
