Parker PAGE International Hose is now offering seamless convoluted PTFE hose with Nomex Braid, a flame resistant fabric with a texture that resembles nylon. According to the company, Parker PAGE Nomex braided hose assemblies offer:
- Superior flexibility, allowing them to route through tight areas and eliminate RFI issues seen in many applications having stainless steel reinforcements.
- Less susceptibility to cracking from stress or flexing than metal hose assemblies.
- An optional polyester monofilament scuff sleeve for abrasion resistance.
- Light weight construction — about 40 percent lighter than a typical stainless steel braided hose with nearly the same temperature resistance (up to 400°F).
