The Kongsberg Automotive UltiFlex® product range has a patented, cold-forming method for manufacturing Smoothbore Convoluted (SBC) PTFE tube, this method allows the PTFE tube to be manipulated at considerably lower temperatures, saving over 50% of the energy used in a standard gel forming method whilst maintaining the same or better physical properties.
The Kongsberg Automotive UltiFlex® product range is an ultra-flexible, smoothbore PTFE hose for when space is an issue, but a smoothbore is a must for an uninterrupted flow and ease of cleaning. Also, for arduous applications where strength and resilience coupled with PTFE’s unique qualities are required.
