To overcome the obstacles that previous researchers have been unable to surpass, Talon Technologies has developed a unique hose system that builds on proven high pressure designs. Talon has experience with designing high pressure hoses and understands the challenges facing this project. The concept is to use a braided substrate as reinforcement for a smooth-walled inner channel. This will combine the benefit of having a smooth wall for fluid transfer with the increased stability of a braided reinforcement. Subsequent layers of braid will be added to provide the required burst protection and flexible polymer resins will be used to bond the multiple layers together forming a singular composite reinforcing mechanism. Fibers will be selected based on their physical properties and their performance during the fiber testing outlined in the Phase I work plan. Polymer resins will be selected to allow flexibility of the composite and provide adequate strength and protection to the fiber. The key innovative technologies are the use of a braided design as opposed to the circular knitted and woven designs previously tried. Also, by reinforcing the inner liner with a braided substrate, the hose will have more integrity and be less likely to kink or twist.
