Flexible Hose Mandrels


Bell Plastics:  Experts and innovators in hose lubricants

Mandrel lubricants are applied to flexible mandrels to improve mandrel ejection/blowout, minimising ejection time and water pressure, eliminating tube damage and mandrel damage (“snakeskin”).

We produce a range of mandrel lubricants, which have been developed specifically for hose production under the Bellflex Lube range

Bell Plastics Ltd produces only water based mandrel lubricant/release products eliminating risk of flammable solvents and environmental damage (VOC).

We offer a service to establish the best lubricant for each hose/mandrel combination, a service that is critical as tube compounds vary and behave very differently (even within the same generic rubber tube material type).

Through a combination of production selection, advice on how lubricant should be applied, we enable our customers to optimise mandrel ejection and reduce very costly, common issues:

- mandrel skin (“snakeskin”) contamination of hose and mandrel damage
- hose tube damage
- Unnecessary cutting of hose into shorter lengths
- Rapid mandrel ejection/blow out

Bell Plastics lubricants are not simply a range of mandrel lubricants but a complete lubrication service for all your mandrel needs.

Utilising both the intensively researched lubricants and the technical knowledge and international experience of Bell Plastics, Bellflex Lube ensures that your mandrels, your hoses and your lubricant all work in harmony.
