  • What is XLPE

    Bell Plastics XLPE (cross-linkable polyethylene) is an un-crosslinked compound of polyethylene and peroxide.  During hose vulcanisation, this compound cross-links to form an inner tube of cross-linked polyethylene, strongly bonded to the rubber of the hose. After cross-linking in this way, XLPE has excellent resistance to a wide range of industrial chemicals and solvents, making it an ideal material for the lining of chemical transport hoses.

  • Why choose XLPE from Bell Plastics?

    Greater flexibility
    With almost identical chemical resistance to UHMWPE, XLPE’s greater flexibility and lower cost allow a thicker lining layer to be used that is less vulnerable to damage by hose fittings.

    Bell Plastics has been making XLPE sheet for the rubber hose industry for over 20 years.
