Sticky Stripe™ PVC Flex Hose
…Same great GPH A/R Flex PVC hose with an industry first easy melt welding stripe built in.
Solvent welding PVC is such a common practice in the irrigation field that it has been taken for granted... until a poor weld causes a system failure. Our proprietary catalyst in the Orange Stripe melts at a lower temperature with a lower viscosity; ensuring a better weld compared to standard hose using the same welding technique.
Compatible with slip PVC schedule 40 fittings and connected by solvent welding:
We suggest using, Dura Plastics I-Fuse Primer with Dura Plastics, I-Fuse Flex Pro Solvent Cement recommended for Schedule 40 fitting connection.
Our hose flexibility ensures it will not kink, which makes it a perfect fit for high traffic areas. You can bend it and loop it more easily than most tubing on the market. Manufactured from our durable UVR non-rigid PVC resin with a proprietary Algae Resistance package that is compounded into the tubing in the manufacturing process. Algae resistance is particularly important in on grade applications where increased water temperatures provide a host environment for algae growth that can clog emitters.
Sticky Stripe™ technology helps ensure a better weld.
Constructed from durable, UVR, S-0214 non-rigid PVC blend materials.
Orange stripe makes hose easily identifiable after installation.
Available in 4 different sizes: ½" Irrigation Size (3/8"IPS), ½" IPS, ¾" IPS and 1" IPS.
Can be installed at or below grade.
PVC Tubing is compatible with schedule 40 slip fittings of the corresponding size when welded or “glued”.
