A new hybrid PVC/rubber hose introduced by AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA) is suitable for air and water use. NITRA Hybrid PVC Hose is a blend of PVC and rubber with a polyester braided reinforcement. The PVC gives light weight, color stability and hardness for higher working pressures while the rubber gives improved flexibility and operating temperature range. Specifically:
- The black with green stripe color hose works with air or water (non-potable) and is strong, flexible, kink resistant and has a Shore A 62 hardness rating.
- The hybrid PVC hose is available in 1/4" and 3/8" hose inside diameters and is sold with or without ¼” male NPT nickel-plated brass rigid fittings (additional fittings may be purchased separately).
- The hose is available in 25 and 50-foot hose lengths with fittings, and in 100, 250 and 500-foot bulk hose lengths without fittings.
