Hose: a flexible conduit consisting of a tube, reinforcement, and usually an outer cover.
Hose assembly: a general term referring to any hose coupled with end fittings of any style
attached to one or both ends
Braid: the woven portion of a hose used as reinforcement to increase pressure rating and
add hoop strength. Various materials such as polyester, cotton or metal wire are used. A
hose may have one or more braids, outside or between layers of hose material.
Composite hose: non-vulcanised hose that consists of the following: An internal wire

helix; A multi-ply wall of thermoplastic films and reinforcing fabrics in proportions that give the required physical properties and provide a complete seal. (Note: The film content may be built of tubular films.) A cover consisting of fabric with an abrasion resistant polymeric coating; An external helix wire.

Bend radius: the radius of a bent section of hose measured to the innermost surface of
the curved portion.
Bend radius, minimum: the smallest radius at which a hose can be used. For Metal
Hose: -the radius of a bend measured to the hose centrelines, as recommended by the
Bend radius, dynamic: the radius at which constant or continuous flexing occurs.
Pressure, rated working (or) Pressure, maximum allowable working: the maximum
pressure at which a hose or hose assembly is designed to be used.
Pressure, working (or) Pressure, service: the maximum pressure to which a hose will
be subjected, including the momentary surges in pressure, which can occur during service.
Abbreviated as WP.
Working temperature: the temperature range of the application may include the
temperature of the fluid conveyed or the environmental conditions the assembly is
exposed to in use.

PTFE hoses have a very good chemical resistance to most fluids, resist to high temperatures, have non-sticking and very low-friction characteristics, have almost no aging, and can be constructed to achieve very good flexibility and pressure resistance.

Characteristics of PTFE hoses
Chemically resistant - PTFE hoses are extremely resistant to most conveyed

fluids. The only reactants are extreme oxidizers and reducing agents (elementary sodium, fluorine, chlorine trifluoride and related compounds), and alkali metals (potassium and lithium).

Temperature resistant - PTFE has a very extensive working temperature range.
PTFE hoses generally cover the range of -50\u00b0C to +200\u00b0C, which includes most
industrial applications.
Non-sticking - PTFE offers no adherence to other substances. Even in alternate
use of fluids, contamination risk of the fluid is very limited.
Low-friction - PTFE hoses also assure optimum flow rates of all conveyed fluids
and very limited pressure losses in the fluid lines.
Non-toxic - PTFE is odor-, taste- and color-less and transmits none of these to the
conveyed fluids. PTFE is a FDA approved material for food contact and PTFE
hoses are excellent for the food industry.
Un-inflammable - PTFE does not have any flame propagation
Durable - Due to its chemically inert characteristic, PTFE hoses are virtually
ageless. PTFE hoses have limitless shelf life. Weather resistance is also virtually

Due to its overall excellent chemical resistance, PTFE hoses are used in a very wide variety of industrial applications for conveyance of hot and cold gases, steam, water, synthetic and petroleum-base hydraulic fluids, as well as corrosive chemicals.


Due to its non-contaminant and non-contaminable characteristics, PTFE hoses are used in a wide variety of medical and laboratory apparatus, cosmetics, food industry, automotive and aeronautics industries.
