Lightweight suction hose replaces heavy, ply-wrapped rubber hose

May 16, 2005

Newflex® is a lightweight PVC suction hose with spiral reinforcement for flexibility, durability and performance. The advanced design of the hose allows for the use of corrosion-resistant PVC in applications previously handled by bulkier and heavier ply-wrapped rubber hose. It offers 100 percent PVC construction even in its reinforcement components. The rigid PVC material used for the spiral reinforcement helps the hose resist impact, crushing and kinking while it aids in flexibility. Because it is not a wrapped or layered hose, the hose is lighter in weight than many rubber hoses used for similar purposes. NewAge Industries.
