Silicone Hoses

Description

Description

REHAU manufactures silicone hoses for almost every area of application, available in a broad range of sizes and specifications to meet the individual requirement.

Our silicone hose product range is made up of the following;

  • RAUSIL - 'Talcum-coated' silicone hose providing a lubricated surface for easier processing e.g. cutting to length.
  • RAULAB - 'Untalcumed' silicone hose, better transparency, used for applications where the visual monitoring of media is required, e.g. in laboratory work.
  • RAUSIMOLL - 'Foamed' silicone hose, providing thermal insulation in extreme temperatures.
  • RAUSILAM - our 'Fibre-reinforced' silicone hose, used in applications where high pressure and temperature resistance is required.

REHAU's RAUSILAM hoses have been specifically developed for the area of Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM). REHAU provides a unique solution for this industry.

We provide silicone hoses to required food grade standards.
