The Hose Core
At its heart, the firm and sleek core of NovaNox®'s molded hoses is designed for an uninterrupted flow, maintaining its integrity even when in constant contact with aggressive media. Constructed from premium silicone, the core is pivotal to the hose's long-lasting durability and your system's safety.
Encasing this core are meticulously engineered fabric layers fashioned from high-grade polyester. These layers, applied directly over the core, play a dual role: they act as pressure carriers, providing the hose with its characteristic resilience, and serve as stabilizers during ceaseless operation. Their unique composition also facilitates swift and versatile assembly.
Shielding these internal components is a robust cover, a guardian against external elements like UV radiation, abrasion, and various liquid exposures. This cover, also crafted from high-caliber silicone, resists weathering and aging, epitomizing the pinnacle of prolonged service life and performance.
With NovaNox®, you don't just select a hose; you invest in an engineering marvel built for resilience, safety, and unparalleled efficiency.
The innovation behind NovaNox® molded hoses lies in our state-of-the-art production techniques, including advanced extrusion and coiling methods. We achieve a permanent cross-linking of materials through vulcanization, ensuring each hose is dimensionally stable, secure, and impermeable. This meticulous process guarantees the safe transportation of aggressive media under continuous pressure and extreme temperatures, safeguarding operational integrity from start to finish.
Central to our manufacturing precision is the mandrel bending technique. Tailored to your specific geometry requirements, we utilize forming mandrels crafted from steel or stainless steel. The extrusion process begins with the hose core, followed by applying a fabric reinforcement and then the hose cover. After aligning the blank with the specified geometry on the mandrel die, it undergoes vulcanization in an autoclave, culminating in a robust, precisely dimensioned hose.
Our extruded silicone hoses, available in smooth or grooved textures, present a cost-efficient option without compromising quality. Alternatively, our coiled molded tubing involves a spiral wrapping of the mandrel die with rubber bands merged through vulcanization. This method imparts a fabric-like structure on the hose exterior, enhancing dimensional stability and rendering it a premium choice.
With NovaNox®, excellence is not just a promise — it's woven into the very fabric of our high-performance molded hoses. Choose quality, durability, and innovation for your critical applications.
At the heart of NovaNox®'s innovation is the high-quality molded hoses, fabricated from rigorously tested materials like VMQ (silicone rubber) and EPDM (ethylene-propylene-diene rubber). Our EPDM variants, known for their resistance to aqueous solutions, are ideal for cooling water systems, boasting enduring temperature resilience from -50°C to +180°C and even up to +220°C for brief intervals.
For scenarios demanding even higher thermal endurance, NovaNox® employs its signature high-performance silicone, capable of withstanding continuous temperature surges of up to +250°C. Our portfolio extends to hoses made from Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) and styrene-butadiene-rubber (SBR), renowned for their extreme resistance to chemicals, abrasion, extreme temperatures, and more, catering especially to vehicular hydraulics and electrical insulation needs.
Our epichlorohydrin rubber (ECO) hoses resist mineral oils and weathering, maintaining consistent performance in temperatures ranging from -40°C to +120°C. All NovaNox® hoses share common traits of chemical resistance, longevity, and resistance to environmental factors. Their elasticity stands out, effortlessly absorbing constant engine vibrations and mechanical stresses. Furthermore, their lightweight design contributes to significant weight reduction in applications.

In an industrial landscape where efficiency and precision are paramount, NovaNox®'s silicone molded hoses prove to be a game-changer, especially in applications like industrial printers. Our project highlighted the necessity for a hose capable of safely transporting air with minimal condensate content within a highly restricted installation space.
Our solution was a revolutionary molded hose, engineered with 5-layer high-performance silicone, premium polyester fabric inserts, and an internal steel wire reinforcement for optimal shape retention and pressure resistance. Unique to this design was an approximately 20cm long copper wire connection at both ends, allowing the hose to be statically charged, thereby enhancing durability, performance, and safety.
This innovative, custom-made silicone hose met the specific requirements and offered a space-saving, lightweight alternative to traditional metal pipes.
