Your question...

If you have questions or problems related to tubes and hoses for applications, like fire fighting - (drinking) water - abrasive powders - chemical liquids - oil & gas - hydraulic - air - medical - food - antistatic - conductive - permeability - high / low pressure - suction, our experts can help you with their years of experience and knowledge.

Like you they know that  tubes and hoses often transport valuable media. And that it is very important that these transports are reliable and safe, both for the environment and for employees, as well as for the transported medium.
