Hoses are reinforced rubber products that combine a rubber matrix and a reinforcing material so that high strength to flexibility ratios can be achieved. The reinforcing material, usually a kind of fiber, provides the strength and stiffness to the Rubber Hoses. A hose is a flexible and hollow tube designed to carry fluids from one location to another.
Hose design is based on a combination of application and performance. Common factors are size, pressure rating, weight, length, straight hose or coil hose and chemical compatibility.
