Original Press Release:



Reduce Inventory and Maintenance Costs with Synflex® Spectra(TM) Hydraulic Hose



Mantua, Ohio-January 31, 2003-The Specialty Hose Systems division of Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics introduces Synflex® Spectra(TM) hydraulic hose, a new product designed specifically for forklift applications. Synflex hydraulic hose has been used in numerous hydraulic applications for over 30 years; Spectra hydraulic hose is the latest offering engineered for the forklift market.

The Synflex Spectra hose has been designed to be highly flexible, even in cold temperatures, making it ideal for material handling in over-the-mast configurations. This hose can withstand a broader temperature range (-65ºF to 200ºF) than other thermoplastic products on the market, making it a perfect fit for hydraulic 3,000 PSI requirements. Given its lightweight construction and flexibility, Synflex Spectra hose allows for some of the quickest field repair in the market today. Time trials have shown that repairs can take five minutes or less, thus reducing maintenance costs and increasing production uptime.

"In addition to its flexibility and temperature range, one of the major advantages of the new Synflex Spectra hose" says Product Manager Michael Rauh, "is that it reduces the need for distributors to carry multiple hoses. This hose fits all standard pulleys, which eliminates the need to carry any other hose, and will also eliminate the need to carry a variety of couplings. The end result is less inventory and less cost for the distributor. Why would a distributor need to offer all of those other products when Synflex Spectra does it all?"

The Synflex Spectra hose product is available in five different hose sizes, and meets SAE J517, SAE J343, ASTM D-380 and ASTM D-622 standard compliances.

Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics introduced the original thermoplastic hose and tubing over 40 years ago under the Synflex brand name. Today, Synflex is the leading thermoplastic hose and tubing in the market, replacing rubber or metal designs in countless applications. Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics continues to be the technology leader in the industry today, providing innovative solutions in applications across the globe.
