Silicone hosesLikonsil™ elbows, straights, hump hoses, etc.
Features and benefits
Likonsil™ silicone hoses and elbows are made from the best quality silicone rubber with polyester, Nomex® or glassfibre reinforcements for optimal performance under extreme conditions. Our silicone hoses and elbows are supplied with a smooth, blue finish to secure superior fitting on piping. Upon request parts can be made with a more economic cloth wrapped finish also.Outer walls have a top layer of silicone. The superior properties and build guarantee a long, maintenance free life of Likonsil™ hoses.
Our standard range of hoses are made using 3, 4 or 5 plies of fabric depending on diameter, with wall thickness and construction depending on service conditions and flexibility required.
Materials and specification are carefully chosen, to provide a hose that offers easy fitting and maximum performance.

Euro 6 standard engines
If high vacuum resistance is required, hoses can be constructed with either a wire helix built within the wall or, with internal, stainless steel springs.
Fuel Cell & Hybrid vehicles
Standard silicone may show traces of extractable materials – volatile organic compounds – that can harm fuel cell and hybrid systems. Likon offers silicone hoses lined with a clear silicone liner to minimize the risk of contamination to fluid or air carried by the hose. These hoses are suitable for a wide range applications where any contamination needs to be minimized.
Specials / FDA
Hose and elbows can be made to meet special requirements:
- branched hoses
- fluoro lined for improved oil resistance and gas tightness
- convoluted hoses with stainless steel rings to resist kinking, collapsing under vacuum and dilation under pressure
- internal reinforcing rings to prevent collapsing.
- wire reinforced hose for improved bending without kinking
- FDA approved compounds and construction
- heat resistant cover for high temperature environments
