Essential benefits of the 800 Series Hybrid are said to include eliminating weld lines in materials through patented overlapping technology, producing a more consistent finished product; reduced sensitivity to changes in viscosity; reduced sensitivity to changes in line speed; myriad material and multi-layer application possibilities; works in all tubing and jacketing applications with a wide range of materials; low residence time; compact design; and improved concentricity.
The overlapping technology is also said to reduce weld lines to generate a more consistent finished product.
