High tenacity filament polyester yarn in both the warp and weft directions, to provide maximum strength to weight ratio and shall have a minimum filler (weft) yarns of 10.8 inch (425 per Meter). The hose is self-protecting by percolating just the right amount of water through the jacket for even protection along its entire length. This weeping process is achieved by weaving the yarn through the liner thus producing a "wick" effect to dampen (wet) the hose jacket.

Made from polyurethane and is applied using a fused process that welds the polyurethane directly to the textile while the hose is being woven, without the use of adhesives or hot melt. The fused lining process creates a virtually inseparable unit without the use of adhesives, yeilding an extremely low friction (pressure) loss by filling in the corrugations of the weave, creating an ultra thin and smooth waterway. Fire hose made using adhesives of any type do not meet this specification. The lining is approved for use with potable water.

The rate of separation of a 1½" / 38mm strip of polyurethane, transversely cut, is not be greater than ¼" / 6mm per minute under a weight of 12 lbs / 5.5 kg.

Flow and Friction Loss:
The 1½" (38mm) hose is capable of flowing 70 US GPM (264 LPM) with a maximum pressure loss of 10 PSIG (69 kPa) per 100' (30.5M).

Kink Test:
A full length will withstand a hydrostatic pressure of 600 psi / 4140 kPa while kinked.

Coupling Specifications:
In conformance with the current NFPA standard and made of extruded aluminum, hard coated a minimum of .002" thick. Manufactured in North America and permanently labeled with country of origin. The hose is available with threaded and quarter-turn threadless (QC) couplings. Extended lugs to facilitate rapid connect and disconnect.

Manufactured in North America and NAFTA compliant.

ULC approved.
