APFRC Rubber-Covered FEP Hose
Available from NewAge Industries/AdvantaPure
Made of virgin grade FEP fluoropolymer, APFRC is overbraided with a tightly-woven fabric and double spiral steel wire to dramatically enhance its pressure-carrying capability. Its extremely smooth core offers excellent chemical resistance and is USP Class VI approved. An outer jacket of EPDM rubber provides enhanced durability and seals the hose against dirt, chemicals, or other external damage.
APFRC is now available in a more flexible version. APFRC-W-FLX offers the same physical properties as the original version, however, a noticeable difference is seen in larger I.D. sizes in tight-fitting applications where added flexibility is required.
