Kflex is one type of super heavy-duty through-the-weave polyurethane (TPU) covered hose. Be made from high tenacity synthetic yarn circular woven and completely, totally embedded in the TPU compound, excellent protected against mechanical damage, forming a single homogenous construction without the use of any glues or adhesives of any type.
The abrasion resistance of the TPU is one of the highest available, making the hose ideal for use in the extremely abrasive environment in open-pit mines. The outer cover has been designed with extra thickness in order to add wear & tear material. This extends the useful lifespan of the hose.
The circular woven filament polyester reinforcement ensures very high tensile strength and facilitates easy towing with tractors without the risk of damage. The interlocking weave prevents the hose from the lengthwise extension when pulled or pressurized. This avoids delamination of cover or lining from the woven reinforcement and minimizes “snaking” and twisting.
- Extra abrasion resistance for rugged terrain and extreme conditions.

- Resistant to oil and chemicals Integrated inner and outer coating of abrasion-resistant.
Exposure to seawater and contamination by most chemical substances, hydrocarbons, oils, alkalis,
acids and greases must have no effect on the short or long term performance of the hose.
