Then take some anti-friction measures on the rubber tube

You may drag the rubber hoses around a surface during use. For example, pressure washer hose. Although rubber tube is wear proof, this does not mean that you can avoid the damage caused by friction. Here, we Orientflex recommends you spiral protective sleeve. Our spiral guard adopts modified PP material. While it perfectly combines the elasticity of PP with the friction resistance of PE. Thus it performs very well in protecting your flexible rubber hose. After testing, under a pressure of 1.9MPa, the wear thickness was only half a millimeter after continuous grinding for one thousand kilometers. Therefore, after using the spiral protective sleeve, you no longer have to worry about the friction. Besides, it can extend the service life of the rubber tube for at least three years.
