Labelling & Colour Coding

Standard Labelling

All Corroline+ hose assemblies are labelled with the following information:

  • Manufacturer’s Name (Aflex Hose Ltd)
  • Hose Size and Grade
  • EN16643 and year of standard publication
  • EN16643 Electrical Property Grade
  • Max. Working Pressure and Test Pressure
  • Working Temperature Range
  • Unique Serial Number
  • Month & Year of Manufacture
  • Aflex Hose Telephone Number
  • CE Mark (if applicable)

This information is normally laser-etched on to the ferrule.

In some cases, at the discretion of Aflex Hose, the information may be etched on to a thin stainless steel plate which is clamped to the hose, or a loose stainless steel ring mounted on the hose. This may be necessary for example, if the customer requires additional information which may not fit on to the ferrule.

Customers may specify which labelling system they require, and may request additional information on the label.


Colour Coding

A coloured PTFE spiral strip is wound on to the hose.

It can be left loose, or it can be encapsulated under a transparent, heat-shrunk polyolefin sleeve.
