Under pressure for the long run

 

Single End Yarn for Automotive and Industrial Hoses

sks1-1The challenge for today’s hose manufacturers is to meet the ever-increasing demands of industry and OEMs for higher working pressures, more
flexible handling, excellent dynamic performance, greater durability, and
safer, “greener” products. SKS meets these diverse demands with a wide range
of high-tech yarns for hose reinforcement.
