US Hose Willcox Hose composites are engineered to deliver the maximum in chemical compatibility and on-the-job performance.
Manufactured from multiple tight-wound thermoplastic films and tubes that create a barrier to permeation. Specialized manufacturing process techniques assures the proper gauge and pitch of the inner and outer wires to ensure conformity and consistency every time.
The result is a truly flexible thermoplastic composite hose that doesn't kink or collapse with exceptional service life and offers superior safety and performance.
All US HoseWillcox Hose composite hoses are built with many layers of seamless tubes and reinforcing fabrics that prevents permeation by both polar fluids (like methanol) and non-polar liquids (like gasoline).
The result is a composite hose with structural and cover layers that do not deteriorate due to chemical attack; that maintains maximum strength, flexibility and durability and that is compatible with the widest range of chemicals.
Typically, most hose assemblies have full end-to-end electrical continuity with less than 10ohms resistance that is achieved by bonding both the inner and outer wires to the metallic end fittings.
The result is a composite hose that prevents sparking and arc-over hazards and meets the electrical properties requirement of industrial applications.
Each US Hose Willcox Hose end fittings are specifically designed and manufactured to produce a perfect engagement with the hose. The ferrule and tailpiece are permanently attached by the external swaging or crimping process.
The result is a hose and fitting combination that performs to rated burst pressure and assured of 100% performance of the complete hose assembly.
Real Advantages For Today's Applications Compared to rubber and metal hoses....
