FlexFit C-Flex Convoluted PTFE Hose

Select a convoluted-bore, heavy wall PTFE hose with braided stainless steel reinforcement for greater flexibility: true inner diameter – I.D. sizes of 1/2″ up to 2″. The PTFE hose core is a helical convolution, or a single, continuous corrugation throughout the PTFE hose core, allowing the hose to drain completely.
