The material for corrugated hose is SUS 304, with a flame retardant PVC cover. It’s flexible and easy to install. Besides, it has great corrosion resistance and the working life could be more that 10 years. What’s more, it helps solve the aging, cracking and rat damage problems of rubber hose. However, it has poor bending property. Thus it’s better for embedded cooking bench.
