Hose Candy Announces Hose Skins

New Product Provides Custom Styling, Enhanced Performance Under the Hood

ST. GEORGE, Utah – New Hose Candy™ Hose Skins™ are now available to provide custom styling and enhanced performance under the hood.

Designed to slide over stock or custom hoses to create the ultimate tailored appearance, Hose Skins are packaged in vehicle-specific kits to ensure the best possible fit and easy installation.

Each kit includes pre-cut Hose Skins for the desired vehicle, Hose Candy Boa Clamps™ – new heat shrinkable clamps that tighten around hoses to create a leak proof seal correctly sized for each hose – and heat shrinkable hose end sleeves in a variety of colors.  Vehicle-specific kits come in two different skin styles:

  • Carbon Fiber and Kevlar Hose Skin featuring Skinposite technology is designed to give a unique, high-tech look, and it will not melt, burn or support combustion to create the ultimate bullet-proof protection for radiator and other hoses.  They install over existing hoses to deliver improved protection and high-tech appearance.  The braided skin provides a strong, bi-axial carbon fiber matrix for stiff, lightweight tubular structures up to 3 inches in diameter and are available in a combination of colors, including Red/Black, Green/Black, Orange/Black, Blue/Black and Carbon Fiber Black.
  • Dragon Skin™ protects hoses in temperatures up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit, making it ideal for thermal protection for hoses that are subjected to continuous and extreme temperature environments like engine manifolds and exhaust systems.  Easy to install, Dragon Skin is braided from fiberglass yarns and saturated with high temperature resins.

Custom Hose Skin kits are also available and come in additional high-performance materials:

  • Diamond Back Black™ material is ideal for do-it-yourselfers because it can be scissor cut, features fray-resistant ends and expands for ease of installation.  The material has a melt temperature of 476 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • 665 Hose Skin Wrap™ is engineered from aerospace-grade yarns that can withstand 1800 degree Fahrenheit direct heat and 2500 degree Fahrenheit radiant heat.  Ideal for turbo charged race engines, 665 Wrap is easy to install and resists gas and engine chemicals while looking great.
