Bioflex Ultra Anti-Static Liner with Polypropylene Braid
Polypropylene braided hose is often preferred to stainless steel in applications involving frequent handling and movement of the hose, and where temperatures are within the range -30°C and +100°C (-22°F to +212°F). PB braid is lighter in weight, and any broken strands will not cut the operator’s hands. In addition, PB braid is not prone to “chloride stress corrosion”, and has generally good chemical resistance.
To ensure Electrical Continuity (EC) between end fittings 2 strands of Monel wire earthing strips are crisscrossed on to the liner, underneath the Polypropylene Braid. These are folded back underneath the ferrule at both end fittings, to make an electrical contact.
Note: Prolonged exposure to sunlight eventually results in UV degradation of PB braid.
