Chemical compatibility offered by contemporary materials make new composite hoses ideal for transfer of a wide range of chemical and petroleum products. For example,
non-polar polypropylene resists polar fluids such as methanol and sulfuric acid, and polar polyester resists non-polar fluids such as gasoline or aromatic fluids. Composite hoses, consisting of multiple layers of thermoplastic fabrics and films held in place by internal and external wire helices, are manufactured under tension
to make them self-sealing.
TIFT-Compoflex® and Willcox Hose® products, engineered to provide structural support and crush resistance, are available in standard and customized end fittings to meet the specific requirements of virtually any application.
