SOFTPEX ® – setting the benchmark . Connecting hoses are a key water supply component for faucets , washing machines , fridges etc . With a 0 % failure rate since its market launch more than two decades ago , the SOFTPEX ® inliner with its tried and tested material mix is a product you can count on .
Continuous development is our guiding principle , which is why the latest SOFTPEX ® hose generation combines proven and innovative solutions such as reduced dimensions , higher flexibility and simplified installation . In addition , the optimized crimping technology enables an easy installation in very confined environments . Its outstanding tensile strength adds to the dependability of the latest SOFTPEX ® connecting hose generation .
The greener way . The new SOFTPEX ® connecting hose generation comes with a 79 % smaller water and 61 % smaller CO 2 footprint compared to an EPDM connecting hose . Considerable savings are also possible compared to an old-style PEX inliner . This is thanks to Neoperl ’ s continuous material and supply chain optimizations such as optimized raw material usage and product weight as well as shorter transport distances . All this is achieved without compromizing hose performance .
We are not only dedicated to lowering the CO 2 and water footprint , we also have solutions that minimize the lead content of our hoses such as low-lead or lead-free fittings . In the catalogue , you can see whether these fittings are available on the respective product pages .
BOOSTCRIMP ® technology – integrated innovation The BOOSTCRIMP ® technology enables the optimization of the hose to increase flexibility while keeping the flow rate requirement level . At the same time , boostcrimping is a quality hallmark for a safely crimped hose . Available in DN6 and DN8 .
