Stainless steel Malerial Facts and Properties:
• The 300 grades of stainless steel are known as "non-magnetic."
• The 400 grades of stainless steel and plated steel are known as magnetic."
• The 200 and 300 grades of stainless steel resist
corrosion better than 400 grades of stainless steel and better than plated steel.
• Only 300 grades should be considered for marine applications.
• Applications that require IAPMO listed products can include 201 and 300 grade stainless steels.
• Our clamps are compliant with the RoHS directive. All of our clamps are free of Hexavalent or Chromium 6 agents and are known as "hex-free."

Flex-Gear" Constant Tension Clamps
Using a Belleville spring design to eliminate "cold flow" leakage, Flex-Gear clamps adjust with the hose and fitting to maintain constant tension on the connection, eliminating leak paths. Excellent choice for fluctuating temperature applications and thermal compensation.
Features and Benefits:
Belleville spring and clamp construction is built to respond to constant temperature fluctuations. The larger, heavier-gauge, precision-formed springs provide higher rates of band tension and adjustment for a more dependable seal. Inner liner protects against shearing of the hose surfaces. Provides a uniform 360 degree seal. Reusable.
