GOMTEX

A 3 layer quality synthetic rubber fire hose with a perfectly woven textile reinforcement. We are in a position to demonstrate that in the manufacture of GOMTEX only top quality materials are used.

The rubber compound penetrates through the weave of the textile reinforcement forming a compact unique layer, in such a way that the textile becomes encapsulated internally and externally in the rubber compound.

 

CONSTRUCTION SPECIFICATIONS

  • FIRST LAYER: Smooth low friction drop nitrile inner lining, which resists attacks from the most aggressive liquids.
  • SECOND LAYER: Internal High Tenacity Polyester/Nylon textile reinforcement, with a weave designed to enhance strength and flexibility.
  • THIRD LAYER: External nitrile rubber coat, which protects the textile and at the same time is used to bond the inner layer and textile reinforcement tightly. Ribbed to facilitate manipulation and improve abrasion resistance.
