Resistoflex Asia Headquarters in Singapore
| Resistoflex started manufacturing polyvinyl
alcohol (PVA) lined braided hose in New Jersey in 1936. The PVA lined hoses were
superior to rubber hose for all types of marine, automotive, and aviation applications
both commercial and military. At the end of WWII, the jet engine put new demands
on existing hose materials in terms of corrosion resistance and higher temperature
handling capabilities. It was at that time that Resistoflex began working with
a new material called TEFLON® PTFE, and eventually developed and
patented a process to extrude PTFE tubing. Resistoflex invented PTFE lined hose
in 1953 for the aerospace and chemical industries, and in 1956 introduced the
world’s first pipe and fittings lined with TEFLON® PTFE.
Today, Resistoflex Industrial manufactures corrosion-resistant plastic
lined pipe, fittings, and chemical hoses lined with TEFLON® in our 220,000
sq. ft. plant in Marion, NC. In addition to our domestic capacity, Resistoflex also
has lined pipe and fittings manufacturing capacity in The Netherlands, Singapore and established a joint venture in
Thailand, making Resistoflex a truly global supplier of plastic lined
piping products. To further strengthen the Resistoflex commitment to Asia,
we opened a sales and fabrication center in China in 1997.
In 1998, Crane Resistoflex acquired the Plastic Line Piping Products
division of The Dow Chemical Company (who invented Saran® lined pipe
in 1943), and in 2005, acquired the PSI Division of Edlon, making Resistoflex the largest and most technologically
advanced lined piping manufacturer in the world. Resistoflex brings this
vast array of experience and know-how to bear in the design, engineering,
and manufacturing of corrosion-resistant plastic-lined pipe, fittings,
