Below are two tables. One featuring our standard test methods and procedures. One featuring all standards that our products adhere to.

What are ISO standards?

ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization. These standards help to determine whether a hose or tube is the right fit for an application in mind. They help to determine whether a product is suitable for anything from compressed air applications to medical gas pipeline systems.

What is the difference between ISO, EN ISO, and BS EN ISO?

  • ISO is an international standard, agreed upon by industry experts. An ISO standard ensures a quality hose or tube that can deliver optimum performance.
  • EN ISO is an international standard that has been adopted by the European Union. The standard of the hosing or tubing must remain the same, in terms of manufacturing, however, the EU can make small changes if need be, for the standard to meet the EU’s own safety regulations.
  • BS EN ISO is an international standard that has not only been adopted by the European Union, but also released in British English, by the British Standards Institute. An EN ISO cannot be released by the EU unless it is released separately in one or more of the official languages of the EU. For example, in Britain the standard is released as BS EN ISO, whilst in German it would be released as DIN EN ISO.
  • DIN is also a German standard developed to test products. We have several products that are subjected to this testing method, including impact resistance (DIN 53452), mechanical properties (DIN 53455), and density (DIN 53479).
