Product Description
Composite Hoses

Composite hose is produced by initially providing a wire helix which forms, effectively, a hollow internal former. Plies of fabric and thermoplastic films are then successively wound onto the wire former. Amongst plastics materials which may be employed as the films are polypropylene and polytetrafluoroethylene and their combination. A further helical wire is then wound around the outermost film or sheet of fabric. This outer wire helix binds the fabric plies and films together.

A major disadvantage of conventional rubber hose is, however, the difficulty of incorporating other materials therein to vary the characteristics of the finished hose. The problems associated with natural or synthetic rubber hoses, can be overcome by employing composite hoses. A composite hose, unlike a rubber hose, is built up in unvulcanised layers.

The wound plies of fabric and films give the composite hose thus produced greater flexibility than a hose made from natural or synthetic rubber. This is of particular advantage if the intended use of the hose is for loading and unloading petrol tankers and the like or for transferring fuels and oils between a ship and the shore. In addition to the additional flexibility, the advantages of a composite hose over a rubber hose are that it is lighter in weight, cheaper to use and depending upon the composition of the plies employed, it has a wider range of resistance to chemical corrosion.
