Braid & Braided Product

Penflex produces a wide variety of braid and braided products. Braid is a flexible wire sheath surrounding a metal hose that prevents the hose from elongation created by internal pressure. Braid is composed of a number of wires wrapped helically around the hose while at the same time going under and over each other in a basket weave fashion.

Penflex Braid is produced and stocked in various alloys including:

  • 304L, 316L and 321 Stainless Steel
  • Bronze
  • Monel 400
  • Hastelloy C276
  • Inconel alloy 625

Other alloys and material of construction are available upon request.
