The "Thermoplastic Flex Heavy-Duty" is a heavy duty rubber hose that is designed to withstand positive and negative pressure applications. This heavy-duty hose is made from thermoplastic rubber, which offers great chemical resistance and fares better than standard rubber in extreme hot and cold environments. The thermoplastic composition of this heavy-duty hose also serves to provide excellent moisture, UV, and chemical resistance. Thermoplastic rubbers are a class of copolymers that possess both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties, generally made from a mix of plastic and rubber. They deliver enhanced performance and the potential for reduced system costs, compared to materials such as thermoset rubber. Thermoplastic rubber materials are also recyclable and exhibit outstanding chemical resistance.
This thermoplastic hose is reinforced with a spring steel wire helix, which protects the hose from wear and damage. The thicker wall of this hose makes it ideal for heavy-duty industrial uses, such as the movement of abrasives. Unlike other flexible hoses, the "Thermoplastic Flex Heavy-Duty" rubber hose is also able operate at both high and low temperatures. This high temperature hose features a temperature range of -40 degrees to +275 degrees Fahrenheit, making it the ideal choice for environments with wide temperature ranges. The thermoplastic rubber on this chemical resistant hose is also resistant to large amounts of moisture, UV, and ozone, which make this heavy-duty rubber hose the superior choice for outdoor environments.
The "Thermoplastic Flex Heavy-Duty" rubber hose is made-to-order in both 25 and 50-foot sections. These heavy-duty hoses feature plain cut ends and a black finish. Available internal diameter sizes for this thermoplastic hose range from 1.25 to 16 inches. Custom produced lengths of these hoses are available upon request. The wall thickness of this rubber hose varies by size; 0.035" for 1.5 to 3 inches, 0.045" for 4 to 7.5 inches, and 0.054" for 8 inches and above. The heavy-duty design of this rubber hose makes it ideal for sand blasting, parking lot sweeping, duct cleaning, sand and gravel suction, pool blowers, and other heavy-duty applications.
