VARDEX, with its steel wire reinforcement coil, is specially suited for applications where resistance to kinking is of primary importance. A proprietary construction technique employed during the manufacture of VARDEX permits full vacuum capabilities (29.9 in./Hg.) for all sizes without hose collapse.


Constructed of clear, corrosion-resistant PVC, VARDEX can be used to transport various chemicals in areas with tight turns and sharp bends. Its bend radius is approximately four times the I.D.


For easy identification, VARDEX is imprinted with the trademarked name.

Standard coil length is 100 ft. Add length suffix to part number when ordering.
Example: 100 ft. of 2″ I.D. x 2.382″ O.D. hose is part number 140 0406-100.
Working pressures are calculated from burst testing using a 3:1 safety factor. Application testing is recommended.
ID is the critical dimension for fittings application.
