Clear Braid Reinforced Polyurethane Hose (PU-BR)

Clear braid reinforced polyurethane hose (PU-BR) offered by SPS is designed with an open mesh polyester braiding incorporated in wall of flexible, clear, ether-based polyurethane. This provides greater pressure capability than unreinforced polyurethane hose and assists with its resistance to weathering, tearing, impact, abrasion, radiation exposure, oils, greases, fuels and UV rays. Our polyurethane hose has a wide range of temperature resistance (-90°F to 201°F) and shows superior hydrolytic stability. It contains no plasticizers, which can migrate and cause flow contamination or tube hardening and it 100% incineration approved by the Scientific Ecology Group (S.E.G.) for transfer of contaminated and clean liquids. All in all, PU-BR offers superior service life over other materials.

Our polyurethane hoses combines the best properties of both plastic and rubber. It offers abrasion and tear resistance, high tensile and elongation values, and low compression set. Polyurethane is naturally flexible and exhibits virtually unlimited flexural abilities. Combining good chemical resistance with excellent weathering characteristics sets polyurethane apart from most other thermoplastics. Ester-based PU-BR is available through minimum order (call for details).

Our polyurethane hose is commonly used in metering pumps, robotics, computer disc drive equipment, insulating sleeves, small motor fuel lines, vacuum equipment, pressure measuring devices, oxygen and gas lines, transfer lines for clean liquids, instrumentation, pneumatic control systems, hydraulic control systems, automotives, fluid circuitry, sensing systems, grease & lubrication lines, fluid feeds, air tools, oil & fuel lines, cement slurries, petroleum products transfer, abrasive powder transfer, agriculture and more!
