Had Enough of Nylon Hose?
August 01, 2007
If you use nylon hose for vacuum forming or laminations, youll love FeatherStretch nylon from Rx Textiles. This strong, lightweight material stretches way more than nylon hose. It comes on a convenient 25-yd. roll for easy use and has a sheer knit that creates an excellent finish on thermoplastics and laminated sockets. The regular size (2¼-in. wide, fits 26-in. circumference) should fit any below-knee application, and the wide size (3¼-in. wide, fits 56-in. circumference) stretches to fit the biggest above-knee applications.
