Turbocharger/Intercooler Hoses

Develop multi-layer hose and liner solutions with a special co-extrusion process

Innovative Silastic® brand silicone and fluorosilicone elastomers from Dow Corning are now being co-extruded for advanced turbocharger and intercooler hose solutions.

Speed processing, reduce costs, add high performance

Cost-reducing silicone rubber turbocharger hose

With our Silastic elastomers and our patented technology, you can :

  • Meet the increasing challenges of hotter-running turbocharger and intercooler systems on diesel and gasoline engines designed to provide added fuel economy.
  • Use co-extrusion to reduce processing costs while boosting hose integrity, strength and reliability.
  • Match reinforcement materials to specific application requirements.

Specify and fabricate co-extruded hoses and hose liners
Silastic elastomers withstand harsh environments that can cause organics to fail. They :

  • Maintain flexibility at continuous high temperatures above 200°C (392°F), with options available that withstand even higher temperatures.
  • Retain burst strength at pressure extremes.
  • Provide a durable barrier to aggressive engine oils and combustion byproducts.
