Braid-Reinforced PVC Hose Offers Bevy of Options

NewAge Industries' Nylobrade brand of flexible, braid-reinforced PVC hose is now stocked in 12 sizes. Three reinforcement options — thin wall, standard, and high pressure — allow users to select the best fit for their individual needs. Nylobrade is suitable for industrial applications such as air supply, fluid transfer, protective jacketing, and discharge lines, and for medical/pharmaceutical applications including drain lines, air and gases, and device components.

In its standard-wall style, Nylobrade is available in sizes ranging from 1/8” to 2” internal diameter. Two other styles — thin-wall and high-pressure — offer more options. Thin-wall hose works well in light-duty applications such as instrumentation lines and is available at a lower cost than the standard type. High-pressure Nylobrade is manufactured with a different reinforcing braid design to offer increased working pressures. It also has more resistance to kinking, which is an important consideration in applications where bending or repeated flexing occurs.

All Nylobrade styles are manufactured from non-toxic ingredients conforming to FDA and USP Class VI standards and offer a smooth interior for outstanding flow characteristics, according to the company. Nylobrade is resistant to chemicals, corrosion, and abrasion. A large inventory is maintained for quick delivery or JIT situations. Custom options include colors, cut-to-length pieces, heat-formed shapes, thermal hose bonding, and hose assemblies.
