Silicone Elbow also called as Silicone Couplers, Reducer Hoses, Silicone Elbow Connector, 90 Degree Elbow, Silicone Vacuum Hose, Tubing Connector, Medical Silicone Hose, Silicone Hose 45 Degree Elbow, which is widely used in trucks and buses, cranes and bulldozers, farm and forestry equipment, generator sets and military vehicles, Silicone connectors are also used in minin marine, aerospace applications and medical areas. Silicone Elbow Hose is usually made of silicone rubber by compression molding. And according to different working environment, we will suggest different properties material for production.
Silicone Elbow by compression molding can achieve mini parting line and tolerance can achieve to ±0.5mm, the mold tool cost is cheap than liquid injection molding.
Silicone hose connector by Liquid Injection Mold tolerance can achieve 0.05mm and with good and tiny parting line. And compared with compression molded silicone elbow, liquid silicone injection molded silicone elbow connector has higher safefy, can meet 100% medical grade, for medical areas use elbow/ tubing connectors, liquid injection molding is a better choice. While the mold cost of LSR injection mold is much higher than compression molding, if the material safety requirement is not very strict, compression molding is enough.
