Our solid silicone red sheet rubber is available with a 60 Shore A Durometer rating. It is physically durable and is capable of withstanding high temperatures. In fact, silicone is known to be one of the most heat-resistant elastomers available. Red silicone offers excellent UV and ozone resistance, withstanding harsh environments and is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. This hard silicone rubber can be used for many types of seals and gaskets and can be custom cut to fit your application.

The Unalok hose offers a multitude of benefits including:
high abrasion resistant tubes
full flow of product through the hose
no built-in nipples to wear out
easily adaptable to existing systems
streamlined design allows for custom length assemblies which can be fabricated on-site in minutes
This industrial engineered hose is as easy to assemble as a band-on coupling. It is perfect for field repairs, minimizing downtime. It can be used for vibration absorption, field transfer, cargo loading, tank transfer and slurry transport. Ideally, this product can be kept on-hand in frequently used sizes, allowing for immediate on-the-job repair and installation.
Unalok Hose is available in many different tube elastomers including Red Natural Rubber, Black Natural Rubber and Tan Pure Gum Rubber – ready to handle your most demanding applications.
We stock sizes 2″ – 12″ and can fabricate 14″ upon request. Other options include duck and rubber flanges, built-in nipples, rubber-lined nipples and beaded ends.
Items you will need:
Measuring tape, chalk, knife, hacksaw, clamps, wrenches
Measure and mark the required length of hose. Add a little extra length for trimming and lateral overlap.
Cut off the marked length of hose plus the extra length, using a sharp wet cutting tool, such as a knife.
Pull the cut surfaces apart so that the steel helix can be pulled out of the rubber. Cut off the steel helix.
Place the two halves of UNALOK coupling parts 1 and 2 at the position marked and clamp together.
Bolt the two halves of the coupling through the joining flanges, inspect the lining of the hose at frequent intervals while tightening bolts. The end of the hose should extend about 1/8” beyond the coupling flange. Installation is complete when corrugated deformations become clearly visible in the bore of the hose.
Place a sealing gasket between the two couplings and bolt the coupling flanges together. The hose should be attached to a supporting structure over its entire length, but particularly in the area of bends. Conventional hose clamps can be used to prevent undesirable movement of the hose.
