Smoothbore hose was the original PTFE hose product design, first introduced in 1955 for automotive and military applications. It includes a straight PTFE tube, with a standard or thick PTFE wall thickness and an external braid of stainless steel wire. PTFE exhibits unique properties including excellent chemical resistance, very high temperature resistance (up to 260°C, 500°F) and a frictionless, easy clean surface. These properties determine the types of application areas in which PTFE hose can provide the best possible hose product for the job.
Smoothbore PTFE hose is consequently used in a very wide variety of flexible hose applications worldwide, with particular usage in automotive and motorsport applications, refrigeration systems, high pressure steam, hot oil, semiconductor applications, chemicals, paints and inks transfer applications and many more.
