The Benefits from Sourcing Direct from a Hose and Tube Manufacturer in the UK

UK Manufacturer
As expert plastic tube manufacturers, we are able to extrude different materials for a range of different industries and applications. The benefits of buying directly from us are that it is more cost effective, you are confident in the quality of your supply chain, we can extrude different materials as your products and services adapt, and that we foot the cost for increased research and development into the ways into making our extrusion more effective where we can. Let’s explore these benefits further below.

Consistent quality in your supply chain

With all products that require a constant supply, faith in your supply chain is utterly crucial. If your supply falls down then this can leave you in poor situation to try to get the product “out the door” and on time to your expecting customers.

Alongside, this as you are buying different from us, you are safe with the knowledge that each product goes out the door to the same standard each time. As a result, there won’t be varying differences in the quality of the materials you are relying on, and their product composition.

Find out more about our manufacturing process

To be safe at mind that you are dealing with the best, find out more about our manufacturing process here. Our extrusion process begins by feeding pellets of PVC compound into the hopper (a container for holding the raw material) and heating them until they reach a melted state. The PVC compound is then forced through a die that defines the shape and thickness of the tube. The extruded tube is then rapidly cooled in a bath of chilled water. This cool water temperature helps to improve the products clarity. We can then reinforce polyester twine, if required, before encapsulating the tube again with a protective outer coating. Our machinery rollers then pull the tube through the entire process, and then it is cut it into the required lengths. Finally each reel is measured to ensure the tube meets the required inner and outer diameters and other specifications.
