# Additional Product Information

## Hose Storage

**Rubber products in storage can be adversely affected by temperature, humidity, ozone, sunlight, oils, solvents, corrosive liquids and fumes, insects, rodents and radioactive materials.**

The warehousing area should be relatively cool, dark and free from dampness and mildew. All items should be stored on a first-in, first-out basis, since even under these conditions, an unusual length of shelf life could deteriorate certain products.

The ideal storage temperature for rubber products is 50 to 70°F (10—21.1°C) with a maximum limit of 100°F (58°C). If stored below 32°F (0°C), some products may become stiff and should be warmed before being placed in service. Rubber products should not be stored near sources of heat, such as radiators, base heaters, etc. Nor should they be stored under conditions of high or low humidity.

To protect against the adverse effects of ozone, rubber products should not be stored near electrical equipment that may generate ozone or stored for any lengthy period in geographical areas of known high ozone. Conditions of direct and reflected sunlight should also be avoided.

Whenever feasible, rubber products should be stored in their original shipping containers, especially when such containers are wooden crates or cardboard cartons, since this will provide protection against the deteriorating effects of oils, solvents, and corrosive liquids; and will also afford some protection against ozone and sunlight.

However, after all precautions have been taken it should be noted that hoses have a tendency to shrink during storage.

## Hose Bend Radius

**The Bend Radius is the radius of the bent section of hose measured to the innermost surface of the curved portion. It is important because the minimum bend radius is the maximum amount a hose can be bent without being kinked or damaged.**

**General formula to determine bend length:**

Angle of Bend: 360°

x 2 π r = minimum length of hose to make bend

r= given bend radius of average hose

(3/4 foot per each 1” of hose I.D.)

*Example:* To make a 90° bend with a hose with a 6” I.D. – r = 3/4’ x 6 = 4.5’

90° / 360° x 2 x 3.14 x 4.5 =**0.25 x 2 x 3.14 x 4.5 = 7’**

7’ then is the minimum length of hose that can be bent without damaging it.Remember that the bend should take place over the entire minimum length and not a portion of it. In addition, the formula does not mean that 7’ will be long enough to meet application needs. It only means that if the 90° bend takes place in less than 7’, the hose could be damaged.However, hose can be constructed to a tighter bend radius to meet your specific needs.

## Resistance Rating Information

**A** – Good resistance, usually suitable for service

**F** – Fair resistance, a chemical has some deteriorative effects, but the elastomer is still adequate for moderate service

**C** – Depends on condition, moderate service may be possible if chemical exposure is limited or infrequent

**X** – Not recommended, unsuitable for service

**I** – Insufficient information, not enough data available at the time of publication to determine rating
