In addition to our range of tubing, Silex stocks a selection of silicone rubber hoses suitable for a huge range of applications, including reinforced hoses suitable for vacuum or pressure applications and fluorosilicone lined hoses suitable for use with volatile fuels.
Mandrel built hoses generally take over from the braided format where the size range goes beyond the limitations of extruded products and when the incorporation of wire is required for vacuum applications.
Hoses up to 300mm diameter can be made. Our range of mandrel built hoses include Platinum cured for pharmaceutical applications, Peroxide cured coloured hoses for coolant and various flame retardant and industrial grades for technical applications.
A range of elbows and straight connectors are also available.
