Clear-Flex polyurethane: CLEARLY a better connector!
Clear-Flex is your solution when you need flexible connectors that are static-dissipative, FDA-acceptable, highly clear… or all three!
Best of all, Clear-Flex outlasts rubber and fabric sleeves by 10 to 1in the demanding application of dry, abrasive materials processing!
Clear-Flex is available in a variety of forms, including seamless tubing, spliced sleeves and connectors, and even molded corrugated sleeves.
We’ve steadily improved Clear-Flex’s qualities over the years until we now proudly offer Clear-Flex SDX, ourfourth-generation product. This custom-compounded polyether-based polyurethane meets ATEX requirements for static dissipation and both FDA and EC standards for food and pharmaceutical contact, while retaining flexibility, exceptional clarity and outstanding durability.
Is Clear-Flex SDX the world’s most perfect connector and sleeve material? You decide.
Now Clear-Flex SDX polyurethane is available in new custom connector designs. Our precision computerized cutting and welding technology allow us to turn your CAD drawing into a Clear-Flex SDX custom connector.
These new products feature smooth, durable welded seams. This eliminates the risk of sewing threads wearing out or falling into your product.
