The permeability value provides an indication of the maximum Ieakage tested at constant conditions of use of the hose at 100°C / 212°F for an entire year. The real permeability value must therefore be measured considering the actual working time and temperatures to which the hose is subjected, keeping in mind that significant and detectable values are obtained with temperatures of more than 50°C /122 °F and that the permeability increases proportionally to the temperature. The permeability values obtained at 100°C / 212°F for the GOMAX hose range, of approximately 1 kg/m2/year, are much lower than those set in the standard UNI EN 1736, which foresees a maximum permeability value of 5 kg/m2/year.
