State-of-the-art and tailor-made hose solutions
The applications for hoses and hose lines are quite as diverse as the media they transport. Not every type of rubber, however, is suitable for transporting every kind of medium or for all conditions of use.
From the many rubber types commonly available on the market, ContiTech develops elastomer compounds just right for the required parameters such as temperature, pressure level, strength, flexibility and - in the case of food, beverage and drinking water hoses - odor and taste neutrality. The tensile members used are manufactured to ContiTech's own specifications.
High-performance hoses for trouble-free operation
Specific rubber compounds, a sophisticated process technology, high-quality reinforcement materials and professional attachment of couplings ensure not only the hygienic flow of media but also a long hose life and maximum industrial safety, even under severe stress loads.
ContiTech's brand-name hoses give the company a defining influence on the establishment of market standards, as does its involvement in national and international standards committees. Our brand names include the following hoses:
- EURO TRIX®
- TRIX® AUTOGEN
- TRIX BLAUSTRAHL®
- TRIX ROTSTRAHL®
As a leading manufacturer of high-quality hoses, the company is also a development partner for its customers and a problem solver when it comes to specific applications and application fields.
Non-tire rubber products and plastics technology
ContiTech holds a global market leadership position for many non-tire rubber products and is a specialist in plastics technology. The company is a division of the Continental Corporation, one of the world's leading automotive suppliers. As a supplier of brake systems, systems and components for powertrains and chassis, instrumentation, infotainment solutions, vehicle electronics, tires and technical elastomers, Continental contributes to enhanced driving safety and global climate protection. Networking and intensive transfer of know-how within the Continental Corporation help accelerate product developments and modifications. And the corporation's in-house testing and experimentation labs allow ContiTech to run trials of its products under more or less authentic operating conditions.
State-of-the-art production process
The hoses are produced in Europe on state-of-the-art production machines. Freely programmable controls reliably regulate the processing of every order. Precise extruding and product-specific braiding technologies and vulcanization processes likewise contribute to the high quality of our hoses.
