Clip - Hoses with the clamp-profile helix

This construction design encompasses all Master-Clip hoses, as well as the Carflex hose types.

Construction

The processing of pre-produced foils, films or plastic fabrics offers us greater flexibility in meeting the demands of our customers. The decisive factor here is the ability to make a hose from these individual strips of films, foils or fabrics.  Using the especially developed “Clip” process, a steel strip is formed into a profile and the other material strips placed inside. The clip-machine then propels the profile in a corkscrew movement during which the profile is pressed thus “clipping” the materials together. This special “clip” process mechanically joins the hose material with the metal outer helix, making it extremely robust with incredible tensile strength.

Advantages

This method offers an extremely wide range of options for the universal processing and combination of almost any hose materials.

  • External wear protection via outer clip-profile helix (Clip)
  • Excellent flexibility
  • Smallest bending radius
  • Extremely compressible (depending on size)
  • Installation-friendly thanks to the patented Clip-Grip hose clamp
  • Almost any production diameter possible up to 36"
