Polyvinylchloride (PVC) Nylobrade Hose

Clear NYLOBRADE is made from non-toxic raw materials that conform to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for use in food contact applications. Its NSF listing makes NYLOBRADE a good choice for drinking water applications, those involving water at temperatures up to 60°C (140°F), and food processing applications.

NYLOBRADE is generally unaffected by most oxidizing and reducing agents. Diluted acids and alkalies have little effect, though if highly concentrated tend to make the hose less pliable. Gasoline and oils will harden PVC over periods of intermittent use. In these applications, continuous use will slow the hardening process.

NYLOBRADE HP (High Pressure) sizes 3/8" I.D. and up have a tighter braid pattern and, therefore, reduce the visual flow contact and increase the hose's resistance to bending & flexing. Heavier walls on similar I.D.s will be more resistant to kinking.
