Reinforcement Terms

Reinforcement refers to a material used to strengthen, augment, or give dimensional stability to another material. Types of hose reinforcement include textiles and threads, metal or plastic wires, outer casings, even spirals of the same material the hose is made from. The main purpose of reinforcement is to enhance a hose's pressure or vacuum capability. It can also protect a hose and aid flexibility.

Below are definitions of some common terms as they relate to hose reinforcement.

Urebrade Polyrurethane HoseBraid - Strands of flexible material that are either woven or laid atop one another; the pattern may be open pitch with a diamond shape showing between the braid material or closed; in the case of hose such as NewAge's Nylobrade®, the braid material is encased within the inner and outer layers of hose material

Denier - A unit of weight for measuring the fineness of fiber filaments and yarns, both silk and synthetic, and equal to a yarn weighing one gram per 9000 meters

Filament - Fiber of extreme length used in yarns and other compositions with little or no twist and usually without the spinning operations required for fibers

Mandrel - A core around which materials such as fabric and thermoset rubber are wound that, when removed, forms a hollow center in a tube

Monofilament - Material composed of a single strand rather than twisted or bundled fibers

Overbraid - An exterior layer of braided reinforcing material, commonly metal, fabric, or plastic, used to strengthen and/or protect a length of tubing or hose
