Co-Polymer Crush Resistant Hoses

Manufacturing of Co-Polymer Crush Resistant Hoses


With a solid reputation in the commercial vacuum industry, Amflex Plastics Inc. co-polymer crush resistant hoses have a rugged, flexible design and are known for their superior quality. Working from customer-supplied specifications, the manufacturing process starts on our state-of-the-art extrusion machinery where the outer shell is fabricated from a co-polymer blend formulated to withstand the rigors of truck-mounted applications. The liner, made from a proprietary-blend of chemically-resistant polyolefin, is applied, and the hose is then spiral wound into lengths up to 100'.

Manufacturing of the hoses inner diameter was 2.0", and the outer diameter of 2.48" were inspected in-line to ensure that they are within tight ±.005" ...
Manufacturing of Premier Hoses

Manufacturing of Premier Hoses


Amflex Plastics Inc. has demonstrated exceptional expertise in manufacturing hoses that withstand the harsh industrial environments found in many robotic applications. Requiring a rapid 24-hour turnaround, this Premier-brand hose was manufactured per customer specifications from a gray co-polymer blend. The 100 foot long hose was extruded with an inner diameter of 1.50" and outer diameter of 1.910", spirally wound, and our in-line inspection tooling verified that it held to the required tight ±.010" tolerances.

Supply & Manufacturing of Pool Hoses

Supply & Manufacturing of Pool Hoses


Amflex Plastics Inc. with its long-established reputation for manufacturing high quality hoses used in many industries, was approached by The Home Depot to supply a line of pool hose "Made in the U.S.A." to replace their current imported product. The demands for this job were high - large volume, fast turnaround, and special packaging had to be developed to meet product space allocation requirements, but the reward was big - a contract for 40,000" lengths of pool hose. However, risk existed in the form of penalties assessed if deliveries were not received promptly and per specification.

Ready for the challenge, the Amflex team rolled up their sleeves and developed a plan for cost-effective manufacturing of a 1.5" diameter ...
Aguaflex Supply & Manufacturing of Short Section Pool Hoses

Supply & Manufacturing of Short Section Pool Hoses


As a contractor for Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies, Amflex Plastics Inc. manufactured a variety of the hoses sold in their stores but we were actively seeking additional business. Leslie's offered us an opportunity to supply the full mix of short section hoses for their automatic pool cleaners, but it hinged on our ability to effectively produce a specialty leader hose with a tapered design that was only required in small quantities.

Our R&D team took up the challenge to create the complex tooling required to transition the hose diameter from 1.5" to 1.25" through a 4' section of hose in a manner that would be cost-effective for low volume production. Using a polyolefin blend, our advanced extruding and spiral winding ...
X-Treme Patented Expandable Hoses

Design & Manufacturing of "X-Treme" Patented Expandable Hoses


Demonstrating that opportunity exists even during adverse economic conditions, Amflex Plastics Inc. custom designed and manufactured "X-Treme" patented expandable hose for the dust collection industry has proven to be one of our most successful product development efforts ever.

Manufacturing of the hoses inner diameter was 2.0", and the outer diameter of 2.48" were inspected in-line to ensure that they are within tight ±.005" tolerances. Finished by applying the specific ends to meet customer needs, the end result is a durable hose with an outstanding service lifetime.

Back in 2008 as oil hit $140/barrel, both polyethylene prices and transportation costs for commodities skyrocketed, forcing us to take a long, hard look ...
