How Do You Avoid the Wrong Kind of Bend?

Sometimes, working with hoses can be a bit frustrating. When you have a job to do, you don’t need to worry about the integrity of your hose. Novaflex offers a bend restrictor for its Uni-Chem hoses. The bend restrictor moves the flex point away from the coupling system end. Instead of the hose bending sharply where it connects, the bend restrictor softens the curve, extending the hose life. What are some of the other benefits of a bend restrictor?

  • Long-lasting ozone-resistant EPDM rubber blend.
  • Uni-chem bend restrictors provide increased service life on hose connections.
  • Reduced risk of premature hose wear due to kinking and hose fatigue at the tangent point.
