Star Lite Nomex Hose

StartLite Lightweight Hose utilizes a fire retardant Nomex cover and patented AQP elastomer tube liner. The Nomex cover eliminates the need for firesleeve type protective cover required by stainless braided hose. StartLite hose assemblies are 45% lighter in weight than conventional high performance stainless braided hose assemblies but has an operating pressure of 200 psi in all sizes and a five to one safety margin at + 300 deg. F. All sizes are vacuum rated up to 20 in. Hg.

Startlite Hose can use either standard reusable Aeroquip hose ends or, for the ultimate in weight saving, aluminum crimp - style swivel fittings. Either are available in sizes - 4 thru - 16. Crimped hose ends are installed in our shop using the Aeroquip ProCrimp 1380 assembly machine.

Startlite is approved for competition use in most major racing series, including NASCAR, CART, IRL, ALMS, NHRA, and WOO.

Benefits include:

  • Up to 45% weight savings over stainless braided hose
  • Fire retardant Nomex Hose construction
  • Minimal heat dissipation means cooler to the touch
  • Withstands temperature up to +300 deg. F.
  • Flexible (bend radius exceeds standard Aeroquip racing hose)
  • Uses either reusable or crimp style swivel fittings
