By adding radiant liner to the 1050 Ballistic substrate, hydraulic systems and components become protected from extreme temperature allowing for optimal performance. Radiant lined products are often used in HVAC systems, refuse applications, and various other plumbing systems where maintaining thermal properties are critical.

In additional to the standard 5601 sleeve characteristics, the Radiant Liner offers thermal properties engineered to meet application needs when working in extreme cold and/or abrasive environments.

Radiant Lined Black Poly provides an economical way to bundle and insulated plumbing components that see little-to-no wear. A light PVC coating helps prevent further damage caused by high UV.
