Stainless steel braided PTFE hoses are extremely common in today’s market since they can be used to distribute gasses and liquids efficiently and safely. In fact, braided PTFE hoses are so versatile, they have revolutionized modern living and business. Available in all sizes and types, they are found everywhere from manufacturing plants to homes. When deciding what type of hose assembly you may need in your manufacturing, it is hard to overlook the PTFE braided hose.
It is different from other hose in the market because of the woven stainless steel reinforcement over the hose tubing, that gives added strength.
Really well! In fact, PTFE braided hose surpasses most other hoses when performing under high pressure.
In situations where hoses are exposed to extreme weather conditions, PTFE braided hose is an excellent choice.
The only known chemicals that can damage PTFE are molten alkali metals and halogenated chemicals, making braided PTFE hose ideal for various manufacturing

The hose can also be further protected from high heat environments with a heat sleeve over the stainless steel braid reinforcement.
The reinforcements of the stainless steel braids allow the hose to be utilized in motion and vibration processes while maintaining its durability. The hose can be bent considerably, depending on size and overall construction: smooth-bore, convoluted and, or outer cover/s. See our hose product specifications for minimum bend radius information.
Since chemical compounds within PTFE braided hoses are almost completely resistant to sticking, they are resistant to damage from the chemicals it is transporting.
This universal and durable hose offers cleanliness, durability, extensive shelf life, safety, and flexibility, making PTFE braided hoses a wonder material of modern manufacturing.
