Tailor-made hoses and hose lines
The applications for hoses and hose lines are as diverse as the media they transport. Not every type of rubber, however, is suitable for transporting every kind of medium or for all conditions of use. From the many rubber types commonly available on the market, ContiTech develops elastomer compounds just right for the required parameters such as temperature, pressure level, strength, flexibility and – in the case of food, beverage and potable water hose – odour and taste neutrality. The reinforcements used are manufactured to ContiTech’s own specifications.
High-performance hoses for trouble-free operation
Specific rubber compounds, a sophisticated process technology, high-quality reinforcement materials and professional attachment of couplings ensure not only the hygienic flow of media but also a long hose life and maximum industrial safety – even under severe stress loads.
ContiTech’s brand-name hoses give it a defining influence on the establishment of market standards – as does its involvement in national and international standards committees. As a leading manufacturer of high-quality hoses, the company is also a development partner for its customers and a problem solver when it comes to specific applications and application fields.
ContiTech’s brand-name hoses are:
- Euro Trix®
- Trix® Autogen
- Trix Blaustrahl®
- Trix Rotstrahl®
