Flexitex Standard

Mandals Flexitex Standard is intended for use as feeder hose for smaller irrigation and slurry units in the agricultural sector. The hose is also used as a light weight wash down or transfer hose for water based and non polar liquids in construction and general industry, and is ideal as “back up” hose for industrial fire fighting teams.

Mandals Flexitex Standard 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.

The hose has high resistance against commonly used chemicals. Due to the interlocking circular weave, the hose does not stretch when pulled. For the same reason, it 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 hose can be delivered in lengths up to 200 meters.
