The Mertex Lining Process welds the lining directly to the textile while the hose is being woven. This allows the use of high strength Filament Polyester yarn to be used, due to the Mertex® process superior liner adhesion. It locks fibers together for greater strength while still allowing for a high flexibility. Then creates a virtually inseparable bond without the use of adhesives which is a huge advantage over competitors. Yields an extremely low friction (pressure) loss because the Mertex process fills the corrugations of the weave, which creates an amazingly thin and smooth waterway. Mertex lined hose produces lower elongation under pressure. This means less pull back when water is suddenly shut-off, resulting in a safer hose to work with.
Clear Permatek™ Treatment locks fibers together for greater strength, reduces water pickup and absorption.
