Automotive & Light Duty Application—Radiator Hose Connection

  • We offer reusable static and spring  in a wide range of materials,  widths and sizes
  • Low cost locating clips available to secure clamp to hose during transit to end OEM assembly – no need for glue or overmold.
  • High band load and high residual torque improve  the joint sealing pressure
  • We can also provide your Pressure, Vibration, Thermal (PVT) testing needs in many situations
  • We can also offer the clamp pre-sized to your specific application
  • Our engineers have sophisticated pressure, vibration and thermal test equipment (PVT) that we can use to simulate real world coolant application conditions.  We can test your entire application to industry norms (eg. SAE 1610) or to your unique specification.  By working with us, you can validate the entire joint to give you the confidence you need to launch.
