The Novaflex Group has made available the new TPU VAC Hose specifically designed for material handling of abrasive media under vacuum. The TPU VAC Hose is a lightweight, flexible alternative to heavy-walled PVC and offers excellent abrasion resistance.

All-weather construction, resistant to ozone attack and salt.
Polyurethane wall for superior abrasion resistance and light weight.
Smooth inner tube for maximum product flow.
External wear strip that prevents damage from abrasion.
Heavy-duty construction for full vacuum.
Advantages of thermoplastic urethane include abrasion resistance, light weight, outstanding low-temperature performance, superior mechanical properties, high tear strength and elasticity similar to rubber, high transparency, as well as good oil and grease resistance.
TPU VAC Hose comes in sizes from 4" to 8", with larger sizes provided upon request. Operating temperature ranges from -50° to 200° F.
