Extra Ingredients

Many times tubing and hose is made up of materials other than what the material is called. For instance, PVC tubing doesn't contain only PVC (polyvinyl chloride). It may include substances to make it pliable, softer or harder, pressure resistant and/or colored.

Here we offer some explanations for the extra ingredients in plastic tubing and hose...

extra ingredientsAdditive – A substance compounded into (mixed with) a resin to enhance certain characteristics; examples include plasticizers (for flexibility), light stabilizers, and flame retardants

Carbon Black – A multi-functional additive produced by the incomplete burning of natural gas or oil and used in plastics as a conductor of electricity, a pigment, an extender, and a stabilizer

Extender – A substance added to a plastic compound to reduce the amount of resin required per unit volume, thereby reducing costs

Filler – A material added to a plastic to make it less costly and/or improve physical properties such as hardness, stiffness, and impact strength

Pigment – Colorant added to a compound to manufacture a colored product

Plasticizer – A chemical agent added to a resin to increase its workability during processing and to impart flexibility and other desired properties to the finished product

Stabilizer – An ingredient included in the compounding of some polymers to assist in maintaining desirable physical and chemical properties of the compounded material throughout the life of the material; examples: heat or U.V. radiation stabilizers
