Snap-tite TPX 3-ply design hose

Technical Specification

Features:
  • Make: Snap-tite
  • Model code: TPX
  • Coupled?: Yes
  • Material: Rubber
  • Response: Supply
Additional info:

TPX is the ultra-tough municipal rubber fire hose—but without bulk and weight. Traditionally manufactured extruded hose can vary in thickness, becoming bulky and heavy. TPX’s unique 3-ply design features a ribbed cover and smooth nitrile liner that are extruded independently. The cover is inserted inside the tight-weave polyester reinforcement, vulcanized, then turned inside-out. The liner is then inserted and the hose is vulcanized a second time to form a bond of all three plies, guaranteeing a consistent, compact hose wall. This makes the lightweight TPX more resistant to puncture and easier to pack and store, requiring less hose bed space than typical extruded hose.
