How It's Made
Braided Thermoplastic Hose

Like unreinforced tubing from NewAge Industries, braid reinforced hose is made of PVC or polyurethane that is extruded (formed) into a specific shape by being forced through specialized extrusion machinery.

The resin, in the shape of small pellets, is suctioned from a bin into a hopper located at the start of the extrusion line. The pellets feed into the extruder and are melted. This molten plastic is forced through a combination die and pin set, giving the material its round and hollow shape.

From this point, the hose liner travels through a cooling water bath to set its form. Following this step, dimensions are checked with a computerized laser monitoring system.

Next, polyester thread is wrapped around the liner by machine as it passes through spiral braiding equipment. The braided hose liner is preheated before going through a second extruder where the outer layer of molten plastic is applied. Once again, the hose travels in and out of a cooling bath to set its shape.

The finished hose passes through a second laser monitoring unit for a final dimensional check. From there it's on to the coiler, a piece of equipment that winds the hose into manageable coils or onto spools. As with tubing, hose can be cut into specified lengths at the end of the line according to a customer's requirement.
