Stainless steel braid is designed for external use around corrugated tube to combat elongation and increase the tubes internal pressure rating.
Unbraided corrugated tube elongates when pressurised above a certain level. To restrain this, a minimum of one external layer of braid is recommended, preventing longitudal expansion of the corrugated tube and thus increasing the internal pressure strength of the tube.
Braid is highly flexible and follows the movement of the hose. Excellent chemical resistance, durability and corrosion resistance.
