When to Consider Packing:

Interlocked metal hose, by the nature of its construction, is not pressure tight. However, pressure and media infiltration through the interlocked wall can be minimized by the insertion of one of a variety of packings into the wall during hose manufacturing. Packing consists of a continuous cord or strand of elastomer, or other material which is locked into a special channel between the interlocked hose wall layers. The choice of packing material is tailored to the demands of the specific application.
