Heat shrink clamps
HOSE CANDY BOA CLAMPS
Create a leak proof seal in cooling systems, vacuum and turbo hoses
ST. GEORGE, Utah – Hose Candy introduces Boa Clamps – new heat shrinkable clamps that tighten around hoses to create a leak proof seal in a variety of applications, including radiator and heater hose, air induction systems up to 3 inches, vacuum and turbo hoses, hose splicing and air ducting for race brake systems.
Made from thermoplastic heat-sensitive material, Boa Clamps shrink to conform to any shape hose and housing and are designed to solve coolant and air leakage problems in both silicone and standard rubber wall hoses.
Wider than conventional clamps, Boa Clamps can be positioned over the raised bead on the end of the fitting nipple – even cast metal. They allow users to couple air induction hoses using one component, eliminating the needs for a silicone coupler and two worm gear clamps.
“Our new Boa Clamps are designed to never need retightening after installation,” said Jon Petty, CEO and founder of the Hose Candy product line. “When the engine reaches operating temperature, the shrink forces of the Boa Clamp re-adjust to a consistent clamping force. In addition, the clamping force increases as the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, tightening the connection and eliminating common cold leaks.”
Boa Clamps are available in standard and heavy duty sizes for 1/4 through 3 1/8 inch I.D. hose. They come in a variety of colors, including black, blue, red, yellow and purple. Note: Colors are limited for sizes over 2 1/2 inches.
The Boa Clamps are easy to install using heat gun attachments that allow users to access hard-to-reach areas. The company’s Hose Candy clamp removal tool or a soldering iron makes them easy to remove as well.
