Black Rubber Tubing

A reliable source for Black Rubber Tubing information and leading Black Rubber Tubing Companies & Manufacturers.

Rubber tubing moves liquid and gasses in hydraulic, pneumatic, medical, and industrial processes. The rubber tubings are flexible and sturdy. Rubber tubings are formed using natural and synthetic rubbers. Manufacturers can convert the latex of natural rubber into rubber tubing. Synthetic rubbers are artificial rubbers. Read More…

Black Rubber Tubing Black rubber tubing is made from either a natural or artificial elastomer that has undergone a finishing process that colors it black and leaves it highly flexible, tear resistant and resilient.

Materials Used

Rubber tubings are differentiated by rubber-based materials used in their production. Black rubber tubing is made by adding black color to natural or synthetic rubber. The rubber material is known for its elasticity, flexibility, tear resistance, stretch, and thermal stability up to certain temperatures. There are many types of synthetic rubbers used for black tubing production. These are as follows:

Butyl Rubber

Butyl rubber material has excellent chemical, ozone, heat resistance, and low gas permeability.

Isoprene

Isoprene is a fat-free derivative of natural rubber with high abrasion resistance.

Nitrile Rubber

Nitrile rubber has high wear, chemical, and temperature resistance. It is also highly resilient.

Polychloroprene

Polychloroprene is an ozone, heat, and oil-resistant synthetic material.

Styrene-Butadiene

Styrene-Butadiene is an inexpensive material with good tensile strength, flexibility, and heat resistance. This material is also inexpensive.

Characteristics of Black Rubber Tubing

The following are the characteristics of black rubber tubing:

  • Black neoprene rubber tubing is made of high-quality, flexible materials.
  • It has a high-temperature range and is also highly durable.
  • Black rubber tubing has good abrasion, weather, and aging resistance.
  • Black rubber tubing is easy to cut and available in a wide range of diameters according to its application.
  • Black rubber tubing is a good option for transferring a wide range of liquids, including oil-based liquids.
  • Black rubber tubings are highly flexible and are therefore used in corners and tight surfaces for transferring liquids.
  • Black rubber tubings are good conductors of electricity, so they are not recommended for electrical environments.
  • Black rubber tubings are non-resistant to easter lubricants, so they aren’t best for refrigerators.

Manufacturing of Black Rubber Tubing

As discussed earlier black rubber tubing is made from natural and synthetic rubber. The latex or sap released from natural rubber is used to manufacture black rubber tubing. The latex is mixed with water and other chemicals to thicken its texture. When it is thickened to the desired level, black dye is added.

Black rubber tubing can be manufactured through an extrusion process or a mandrel process.

Extrusion Process

In the extrusion process, the raw, unvulcanized black rubber is fed to the extruder, then put into the die. The amount of temperature and pressure applied depends on the type of tubing being produced. Sulfur is used for its vulcanization.

Rubber Extrusion Process

Mandrel Process

In mandrel process, the rolls or mandrel are dipped into the black rubber material. Then they are heated or vulcanized to be made inelastic and stiff. This process can create Vehicle tires and shoe soles.

Final Mandrel Wrapping

Applications of Black Rubber Tubing

  • Black rubber tubing is the best option in corners, small spaces, and whenever it’s best to hide the tubing.
  • Black rubber tubing is best for the absorption and retention of heat; therefore, it’s often used as an insulator. It’s used in pond filters to reduce the chance of water freezing.
  • Black rubber tubings are widely used in the automotive industry, households, and laboratories to protect pipes and tubes and to transfer liquids and gases.
  • Black rubber tubings are also used in schools, laboratories, outdoors, and in water taps for the safe transfer of liquids and diluted acids.
