Fabric Hoses | Polymer Hoses | What Are They

Master-Clip products, are Polymer & Fabric & Hoses, featuring a mechanically locked helix; thus, eliminating the use of adhesives while providing long and uninterrupted service life.

The combination of many different types of materials, to suit special application requirements, is possible with Master-Clip fabric and polymer hoses; as they are mechanically locked and not reliant for being compatible for welding/glueing.

The outer helix of the ducting, to give protection against abrasion, can be galvanised steel or stainless steel. By the nature of their construction, fabric & polymer hoses, are incredibly lightweight, flexible and compressible.

Due to the type of tools involved in the mechanical locking process diameters between 50-900mm can be made and in lengths up to 25 meters (depending on hose type).

The Various Types of Polymer &
Fabric Hoses (Master-Clip)

Masterflex hoses made from Fabric and Polymer, called Master-Clip (MC), come in various types; as indicated below:

Hoses can also be made using a mixture of materials, such as Hypalon/Polyester outer with PTFE lining; giving good strength and excellent chemical resistance: for example, the Master-Clip PTFE – H.
