EU-AU Hose - 135˚ Bespoke Profile Hose with outstanding tensile strength, low compression set and good resistance to oxidation, ozone, silicone fluids and weather. CALL NOW
EU-AU hoses use polyurethane which falls into two main classes: polyester (AU) and polyether (EU) and both are notable for their combination of hardness with elasticity, outstanding abrasion resistance and tear strength as compared to other elastomers.
EU-AU hoses characteristics provide superior performance in hydraulic applications with high pressures, abrasive contamination and shock loads.
EU-AU hoses have outstanding tensile strength, low compression set and good resistance to oxidation, ozone, silicone fluids and weather. EU-AU hoses, mouldings and gaskets also have excellent resistance to air, alcohols, mineral oil and sunlight resistance.
Depending on the individual polyurethane type the operating temperatures range from below -50 °C/-58 °F up to +110 °C/+230 °F, temporary even higher, is feasible. Fluid compatibility is similar to that of nitrile at temperatures up to approximately 175 °F.
EU-AU hoses have poor resistance to water and poor high temperature capabilities. At higher temperatures polyurethane has a tendency to soften and lose both strength and fluid resistance advantages over other elastomers.
