Had Enough of Nylon Hose?
October 01, 2007
Anyone who uses nylon hose for vacuum forming or laminations will love FeatherStretch nylon from Rx Textiles. This strong, lightweight material stretches way more than nylon hose. It has a sheer knit that creates an excellent finish on thermoplastics and laminated sockets, and it comes on a convenient 25-yd. roll. 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.
