Parflex Hose and Tubing Products

Parflex is a Global Leader in Engineered Polymer-Based Hose and Tubing, Providing Components and Systems for Fluid Conveyance.

Parflex products raise the bar when it comes to fluid transfer. Parflex is a solution partner for many fluid transfer and fluid power companies, developing products that extend the life of their equipment and where possible, increasing safety for operators. Parflex hoses are:

• more compact without reducing flow

Many of our products are designed for use in extreme applications, like the TOUGHJACKET series, featuring 650x the abrasion resistance of rubber.

The Parflex headquarters resides in Ravenna, Ohio, with offices, a manufacturing plant and a state-of-the-art Polymer Innovation Center where design expertise, polymer development, processing options and testing services are available to customers.
