One of the main advantages of polyurethane components is their excellent resistance to wear in both sliding and impact abrasion. Polyurethanes have excellent resistance to fuel, oils, grease, and many solvents. This makes them especially suited for applications such as automotive, steel and aluminum manufacture, and printing.

A clear flexible hose also allows operators to see clogs, which makes for a perfect woodworking dust collector hose!
