Rubber Hoses - Materials for Industrial Hoses

The choice of materials for industrial hoses is quite large. This makes it always difficult to quickly determine the right material for a specific application. The standard in the areas of oil, dredging and offshore includes gum elastic, usually in the form of rubber hoses.

With rubber hoses, a distinction is made between pressure hoses and suction hoses. They differ in that suction hoses as compared to pressure hoses are designed, in addition, for vacuum applications through construction measures (integrated helix, optimised wall thickness, etc.).

Another functional distinction is made with rubber hoses between electrically conductive and non-conductive materials. The mixtures for the rubber hoses are principally always based on natural or synthetic rubber to produce exactly those industrial hoses that are required in regard to elasticity, sturdiness, abrasion resistance and tear strength.
