Automotive Hoses

Stronger Automotive Hoses

Using knitted or braided Kevlar® fibre to reinforce radiator, transmission, and turbocharger automotive hoses helps make them light and strong.

This is because Kevlar® is not only stronger than other materials typically used in high-pressure hoses, but has excellent thermal stability and chemical resistance too.

Kevlar® aramid fibre is made into a continuous-filament yarn available in a broad range of decitex. It is often woven into fabric and twisted and plied into cords.

The inherent thermal resistance of DuPont™ Nomex® makes it ideal for high-temperature applications in automotive hoses.

Sheet structures made of DuPont™ Nomex® fibre are used for under-the-bonnet applications including flexible, high-temperature hoses – for instance, the ones that feed hot air to inlet manifolds and the turbocharger hoses.
