Hoses are made from one or a combination of many different materials. Applications mostly use nylon, polyurethane, polyethylene, PVC, or synthetic or natural rubbers, based on the environment and pressure rating needed.
Hoses can be used in water or other liquid environments or to convey air or other gases.
Hoses are used to carry fluids through air or fluid environments,
and they are typically used with clamps, spigots, flanges, and nozzles to control fluid flow.
