Hoses made of flexible PVC is easily to handle and store as they can be bent around storage hooks or hung at a distance.
Super flexible PVC offers exceptional flexibility so you can move and handle it with extreme ease.
Phthalates are chemicals primarily used in PVC hoses to make them more flexible and durable. It is a lingering chemical and therefore has a chance of being passed on to anything being transferred through the hose. As it is not REACH approved, phthalate free hoses are great for use where this should not happen. Industries where chemicals are transferred, such as the food industry.
Oil-resistant PVC is more resistant to damage from substances such as fuel and oil, making it ideal for vehicle applications as well as the industrial and construction industries.
Odor-resistant PVC does not absorb odors, making it ideal for use in areas where odor is important, such as marinas, the marine and caravan industry, and wastewater treatment applications.
