Formed Hose

Techonology Advantages

The formable STL® braided hose has the ability to make multiple complex shapes to suit the application. This aids in the connection and routability of hoses in a congested environment. STL® hose is beneficial where system serviceability is required and it also aids in design development.

The formable STL® braided hose is designed to withstand high pressure, high temperature and high impulse cycling. STL® hose eliminates fatigue from misalignment and motion vs. rigid tube assemblies.
