Thermoplastic Fire Hoses

Technical Specification

Material : Made up of high quality virgin Thermoplastic Compound.
Reinforcement : High pressure Nylon Yarn
Bend Radius : Can work at a radius of 5 times to the nominal bore size as per BIS standard.
Working Temperature : It  can work at 150oF for short term and for long term 110oF.
Impact Resistance : No break easily. Highly impact resistant material.
Chemical Resistance : Good resistance properties with most of chemicals. Fair to good. It is resistant to acid, alkali and almost all inorganic chemicals.
Fire Regarding Properties : Our high quality Thermoplastic Compound has inherently superior fire retarding properties due to its chlorine content. Its ignition temperature is as high as 455oC, and is a material with less risk for fire incidents since it is not ignited easily. It is a self extinguishing material and dose not continue to burn. Therefore it is suitable for safety reasons.
