New position paper on re-ending hose

06 December, 2018

BFPA has published a new position paper PP1 “Hose Re-Ending” on the BFPA website under “Technical Articles”. The paper essentially explains BFPA’s very clear position which is: “The BFPA’s position is that hose(s) shall not be re-ended”. The view of BFPA‘s industry experts, backed up by technical standards in the field, is that “it isimpossible to know whether an original hose has been stretched, crushed, degraded by sunlight or damaged by chemicals, the hose assembly safety, therefore, cannot be guaranteed if a new end is fitted on a used hose.” To read the full position paper, please visit www.bfpa.co.uk/technical/technical-articles
