​The Challenge ​

Huge fluctuations in temperature in engine systems

There’s a lot happening under the hood of today’s high performance cars and trucks. With huge fluctuations in temperature in engine systems and cooling systems, automotive silicone hoses allows a high levels of resistance to withstand the effects of air pressure, water flow, fuel injection and corrosive fluids.

These silicone hoses are essential for carmakers who want to deliver what consumers expect: reliability, fuel efficiency, safety and comfort. Silicones used in transportation must also comply with increasingly stringent quality, environmental and regulatory requirements.
