Hose pipes are made of different types of materials to suit the applications they are put to. In olden days the Hose Pipes were made of Rubber and its Compounds, which were very bulky, and could not be easily moved from one place to another. They also got damaged easily and it was difficult to repair.
Now the Hose pipes are made of Poly Vinyl Chloride the wonder chemical of the last Century that has got enormous applications throughout the World. The PVC tubing is made of Virgin Grade P.V.C. and range of Hose piping materials include: Flexible Tubing, PVC Flexible Pipes, PVC Garden Pipes & Hoses, PVC Sleevings, Sanitary Waste Connection Pipes & Tubes, Nylon Thread Reinforced Braided Hoses, Double Layer of Triple Garden Hoses, Solid Doris, PVC Strips, Belts and Profiles.
A Vast range of Products are being manufactured in different sizes. Many different types of Hose Pipes are manufactured each for a different type of use like Pneumatic Hoses, Water Hoses, Welding Hoses, Chemical Hoses, Car Washing Hoses, Sanitary Connection Hoses and a range of other Hose pipes.
The Hose pipes for Pneumatic uses are usually Nylon Reinforced Hoses in which the Nylon yarn is fused in between the inner and outer layers of the Hose pipe that gives higher resistance to withstand high pressure without the problem of splitting. They are resistant to various chemicals, Oils and other corrosive materials.
The Water Hose Pipes as the name itself suggests are made for use in transporting Water and they are co-extruded flexible ones most useful for Gardening, Construction, and Irrigation purposes. They manufactured in sizes from 1/2", 3/4" & 1".
Yet another type of Hose pipes is Welding Hoses that connect the Welding Machine with the Welding electrodes carrying Gas for the Oxy-Acetylene welding purposes and cutting equipments. Chemical & Pesticides Hoses pipes are Nylon braided Hoses being used for conveying Chemicals and spraying Pesticides, Insecticides, Fungicides Weeding etc.
The Car washing Hoses are the abrasion and Chemical resistant three layer double reinforced high pressure Hose Pipes that are mostly used in Garages as well as Service stations for car washing purposes.
Another type of Hose pipes is the Sanitary Connection Hoses. These are the Nylon braided Hoses finding wide application in Bathroom fittings and connections. These are corrosion resistant and flexible the connections/ shower Tubes made out of colorful Hoses giving aesthetic looks and adds elegance to the bathroom decor.
