"Thermoplastic Flex Extra Light-Duty" is an extra lightweight rubber duct that is recommended for light-duty air and fume applications. This thermoplastic hose is made from thermoplastic rubber reinforced with a spring steel wire helix. Thermoplastic rubbers are a class of copolymers that possess both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties, generally made from a mix of plastic and rubber. The thermoplastic rubber material gives this product great chemical resistance and also provides a longer life in extreme hot and cold environments over standard rubber. The thermoplastic composition also provides excellent moisture, UV, and ozone protection to this chemical resistant hose. Since thermoplastic rubber fares well in both extreme hot and cold environments, this chemical resistant hose is often preferred over the use of other rubber duct products.
This lightweight and flexible duct is reinforced with a spring steel wire helix that serves to provide protection and durability for the hose. It is generally recommended for light duty applications involving both dust and fumes. Unlike other ducting materials, the "Thermoplastic Flex Extra Light-Duty" rubber duct operates at both high and low temperatures. This thermoplastic hose features a temperature range of -40 degrees to +275 degrees Fahrenheit and is intended for use in situations where the material will be exposed to wide temperature ranges. Additionally, the lightweight construction of this hose makes it extremely flexible, allowing for easy storage and installation in tight spaces.
The "Thermoplastic Flex Extra Light-Duty" rubber duct comes in a standard length of 25 feet with plain cut ends and a black finish. Internal diameter sizes for this flexible duct range from 2 to 6 inches. This is also the most compressible duct from of our line of thermoplastic hose products with a 6 to 1 compression ratio. The lightweight makeup of this hose makes it ideal for light duty air, dust, and fume applications such as A/C ventilation, electric panel cooling, stereo speakers, heater/defroster hose, and textile mills.
