Why do we test our materials and finished hoses?
All raw materials and finished product goes through a rigorous testing process to ensure the silicone hoses, once manufactured, are fit for purpose before leaving the factory. We pride ourselves on manufacturing silicone hoses that are long lasting. Without this testing, it wouldn’t be possible to ensure the quality is as promised.
We are fortunate that we have the capabilities to test in-house in our manufacturing facilities.
What we test for
There are a number of tests that we carry out on both materials and finished product. These include:
- Compression set
- Tensile strength
- Tear strength
- Shore hardness
- Burst pressure
- Temperature resistance
Here’s just a few of our machines which are used in our testing process:
