Kaf-flex Introduces Non-Metallic Liquid-Tight Conduit and Fittings

New Product: Gator-Flex -UV-stabilized, non-metallic liquid-tight flexible conduit and fittings for outdoor, all-weather applications. Design: Kaf-flex In-House Product Design & Engineering Team. Manufacturer: Kaf-flex - a subsidiary of Heyco Products, Inc. Product Applications: Gator-Flex non-metallic liquid-tight flexible conduit and fittings are designed to protect wire bundles and harnesses, hoses, tubing and cable assemblies from mechanical damage, shortouts and environmental hazards. Gator-Flex provides ready-to-use lasting, maintenance-free solutions for marine, HVAC, swimming pool and spa applications in commercial and residential markets. Product Description: The Gator-Flex system is comprised of flexible, PVC conduit, straight and angled connectors and electrical whips. The corrugated, non-metallic PVC jacket, which can be specified with interior diameters of 3/8- through 2-inches, is UV and chemical resistant. It withstands temperatures from 176° F dry to 144° F wet, for maximum flexibility in a range of indoor and outdoor environments. Gator-Flex conduit has an internal corrugated design. Extremely flexible and durable, it allows each tube to accommodate irregular shapes, angles and contours. Tubes can be flexed repeatedly without damage. A choice of straight or angled connectors maintains a liquid-tight connection when coupled, and adds reinforcement along long runs of conduit. Pre-assembled "Flex-Whips" offer ready hook-ups to air conditioning compressors, pool heater/filters and similar applications. Gator-Flex is designed to withstand below-ground applications and is approved for use in runs of greater than 6 feet. Construction & Finishes: Gator-Flex conduit is constructed from exceptionally flexible, internally corrugated PVC, made from a sunlight resistant UL compound. It can be specified in 50- and 100-foot coils. Straight and 90° angle connectors are of a high-impact, tin-stabilized PVC compound, with chemical-resistant polypropylene sealing and gland rings. Gator-Flex is suited for both indoor and outdoor use, above and below ground in virtually any climate or soil condition. The totally non-metallic system provides assured grounding for electrical safety. All Gator-Flex components are inspected a minimum of eight times during manufacture for quality assurance.
