Rely on Vistalon EDPM in industrial air, water, steam and hydraulic hose formulations to achieve:

  • Improved tear strength
  • Better aging resistance
  • Increased flexibility
  • Easier mixing and processing

General purpose industrial hose
Delivered as pellets, Vistalon™ 7001 and Vistalon™ 5601 high-ethylene EPDM grades provide high green strength for extrusion processing and braiding. They can be compounded with high amounts of filler and maintain good physical properties.

High-heat-resistant hose (>150°C / 302°F)
For hot water and steam hoses, blends of Vistalon™ 706 (EPM copolymer) and Vistalon 7001 (a highly crystalline EPDM) offer good processing and good retention of properties after long-term heat aging at 150°C.

Other elastomeric solutions
Consider Santoprene™ TPVs for food-contact or potable water hose and tube applications.
