Parker NomexParker PAGE recently released a line of its seamless convoluted PTFE hose with Nomex braid, a flame-resistant fabric with a texture that resembles nylon. According to the company, these Nomex-braided hose assemblies also deliver:

  • Optimal flexibility, allowing the hose to not only route through tight areas, but also eliminate radio frequency interference issues seen in many applications having stainless steel reinforcements.  
  • A design less susceptible to cracking from stress or flexing than metal hose assemblies. 
  • Operating temperatures up to 400°F, yet Nomex is a much cooler reinforcement, thereby allowing operators to handle hoses without the risk of a burn. 
  • A lightweight profile — about 40 percent lighter than a typical stainless steel braided hose. 
  • Sizes from 1/4 up to 1 inch (inner dia.). 
  • An optional polyester monofilament scuff sleeve to resist abrasion. 
  • NCB static dissipative assemblies upon request.
