Hose internal and external protection with interlocked amour.
To prevent abrasion and over bending, an amour metal interlocked hose can be used as a protective cover over wires or even other hoses. Interlocked hose can be very abrasion resistant, making it ideal for use as protection to corrugated hose from either abrasive media or external damage. Interlocked hose can also be applied to the outside of a corrugated hose to prevent it from over bending. Bending a corrugated hose is one way to excessively fatigue the metal hose of an assembly. However, interlocked hose cannot be over bent without pulling the hose apart, making it an excellent bend restrictor when installed on a corrugated assembly.
