Daily hose maintenance is important to prevent your hoses form getting unnecessary damage and ensuring your hose and equipment last longer.

Shutdown for the day: Proper shutdown of equipment is important to not only ensure it will last longer, but also prepare equipment for seamless startup the next business day. 

Flushing your hose: Never mix water with the isocyanate side of the material. Improper flushing will allow iso crystals to form and this typically damages equipment. Always consult your material manufacturer for proper flushing of their material.
