The manufacturing process for extruded-through-the-weave hose doesn’t involve the use of tubes or adhesives. Instead, in a unique one step procedure, thermoplastic polyurethane material (TPU) is fed into a heated extrusion channel or barrel. As the woven reinforcement jacket is drawn through the barrel, the TPU is extruded through the weave under carefully controlled conditions of temperature and pressure. The result is a hose with a homogeneous single wall of reinforced polyurethane; smooth, tough, resistant to abrasion and weathering, and ready for heavy duty service under the harshest conditions.
Some advantages of through-the-weave TPU lay flat hose are:
Peel tests have shown that adherence of the polyurethane to the reinforcement jacket in
through-the-weave hose is twice as strong as that of 3-Ply hose.
