Hi everyone,

In a current project, I'm curious about the risk of silicone tube cold welding when used with a solenoid pinch valve, such as = http://cfnewsads.thomasnet.com/images/large/454/454667.jpg

What is the likelihood silicone tube will cold weld at the pinch point, if the pressure is just enough to stop low pressure fluid flow (water), and, if pinched for several months. What are the chances of the pinched area, cold welding? If cold welding is a risk, what can be done to avoid it?

I assumed that an overly strong pinch might cold weld silicone together.

many thanks / simon
