We manufacture PVC-nitrile extruded hoses up to 6 inches in diameter (152 mm) and thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) extruded hoses up to 12 inches in diameter (305 mm). The through-the-weave extrusion method creates a very strong bond between the inner reinforcement and the TPU cover. Generally, the TPU cover has an abrasion resistance 4 to 5 times greater than nitrile rubber. Crusader Hose also manufactures uncovered textile hoses
