Toronto, ON — Oct. 31, 2002 — Goodyear Canada’s engineered products division has introduced a new, lightweight, heavy-duty flex hose called “Green Hornet,” targeted for use in the construction, waste management, agricultural, marine and manufacturing industries.

“Green Hornet was developed to meet the growing needs in these business sectors – especially construction and waste management,” said Brad Baber, marketing manager, industrial products for Goodyear Canada’s engineered products division. “It fills a void in the light, flexible thermal plastics market for us.”

“When it comes to removing standing water on construction sites, Green Hornet has optimum suction and discharge capabilities,” said Baber. “On the marine side, this new hose is ideal for bilge pumps on boats as well as onboard sewage removal.”

Features of the hose include:


– Lightweight and easy-to-handle for heavy-duty applications
– Smooth bore tube minimizes material build-up and maximizes chemical resistance
– Corrugated outer helix promotes abrasion resistance, low coefficient of friction, coupling ease
– Weather resistant lime-green polyethylene available in 100 ft lengths.

Goodyear Engineered Products, a global manufacturer of industrial hose products, is also a leading producer of power transmission products and heavy-duty and lightweight conveyor belts. For more details on Green Hornet, contact customer service at 1-888-275-4397.
