Flexitex Extra

Mandals Flexitex Extra is intended for use as a feeder hose for larger irrigation and slurry units in the agricultural sector, and as a transfer hose for non flammable liquids in the construction and general industry.

Mandals Flexitex Extra is made from a blend of nitrile rubber and PVC, with added UV barrier to prevent damage from UV radiation.

The rubber blend is extruded through a circular woven reinforcement made from filament polyester yarn. This production method gives a very strong bonding between cover and lining as well as firmly encapsulating the reinforcing polyester.

Mandals Flexitex Extra has a high resistance against commonly used chemicals. Because of the interlocking circular weave, the hose does not stretch when pulled and has a very high pressure rating to wall thickness ratio.

It can operate from -30°C to +75°C. Intermittent use up to +80°C.

The hoses can be delivered in lengths up to 200 meters.
