CHEM MAXX - All Chemical


CHEM MAXX is a very versatile hose used for the transfer of chemicals and will handle 90% of known chemicals and petroleum products in both suction and discharge applications.


Tube - Translucent smooth cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE)
Reinforcement - A dual wire helix between two layers of high tensile synthetic cords
Cover - Green smooth EPDM chemical resistant rubber
Branding - White Stripe  CHEM MAXX XLPE CHEMICAL HOSE 150 PSI

Temperature Range

-29°C to +66°C (-20°F to +150°F) or -29°C to +82°C (-20°F to +180°F) Depending on media being conveyed

Standard Lengths

50ft/ 100ft


*Reduced pressure ratings are advised when handling hot, extremely corrosive chemicals. *Working pressures shown are based on using a permanent type coupling such as swage or internally expanded. *For branding type couplings, the working pressure should be reduced to 65% of the pressure listed below.

Working pressures are calculated at 70 degrees F (20 degrees C). Maximum working pressure decreases as temperature increases. Pressure ratings can only be achieved using proper coupling procedures. Bend radius is calculated at 70 degrees F (20 degrees C). Flexibility may vary at different temperatures. Please contact IRP if you have concerns regarding your application.
