Composite Hose

Composite hoses are manufactured on the mandrel wrapped principle.

The hose consists of an inner wire spiral upon which layers of fabric and film are wrapped, and bound with an external wire spiral. The tension between each other of the wire spirals gives the hose its pressure capability.

The heart of a composite hose is in the materials selection. Fabric and film materials used include Polypropylene, Polyester and Polyamide. The wire helixes can be of galvanised steel, aluminium, stainless steel or polypropylene coated steel.

The final selection of the materials depends upon the application for the hose.

Radcoflex Composite Hose is one of the most trusted hoses in the world.
