Prime Hose AG - PVC medical Gas Hose

PrimeHose Ag - Antimicrobial Non Phthalate Anti Static PVC Medical Gas Hose

Colex PVC Medical Gas Hose is the latest development in a project designed to provide the market with up to date and technically advanced products for the delivery of medical gases in the modern hospital environment. With careful selection of materials Colex are able to offer high quality products based upon the best materials for the application.

PrimeHose Ag also has built in antimicrobial protection with a wipe down activation. This offers customers a product that is primed to meet any current or future requirements that arise in the area of infection control.

Historically, gas delivery systems were based upon PVC hoses plasticised with the standard ortho-phthalate plasticisers. As concern about the use of phthalates in such systems has grown, Colex have been at the forefront of seeking out the best solutions to this issue.

As there are many options available, some companies have simply sought the most cost-effective alternatives when selecting their non-phthalate materials. Colex do not believe that this is simply a price issue and have taken a more balanced view. Therefore, the PVC grade we have selected offers the customer a superior quality material that is currently used in a wide range of medical applications.

Features & Benefits
