Temperature resistance VACUFLEX® VSM HX vs normal VSM hose

With this video we would like to show you the difference between our special hose VACUFLEX® VSM-HX and a conventional VSM hose.

Due to its innovative raw material composition (modified TPO), the VSM-HX can last up to + 250 °C permanently.

In the video you can see the temperature resistance of the hose even under a soldering iron heated to over 300°C! 

Due to its high temperature resistance, the VACUFLEX® VSM-HX is particularly suitable to be used as a:

- Protective tube for acetylene and oxygen hoses in welding applications 
- Cable protection hose in sparks hazard applications 
- Vapor Extraction hose in welding applications 
- Suction hose for bakery and pizza ovens


How to cut a netted and compressed poyurethane hose

With this video we want to show you on one of our FLEXADUX® hoses how to properly unpack a compressed and netted hose and how to cut off a individual lengths of it.

How to cut a netted and compressed poyurethane hose

With this video we want to show you on one of our FLEXADUX® hoses how to properly unpack a compressed and netted hose and how to cut off a individual lengths of it.

1) Open the net
2) Remove the hose and lay it out to its full length. (In this case the total length is 10 meters plus the plus tolerance)
3) The hose must be stretched to its full length and tightened
4) With the hose stretched, we cut off 1 meter of the total length
5) Use a sharp knife to cut the hose wall along the wire all around
6) Cut the wire
7) That's it!
