Liquid Tight Non-Metallic Flexible Conduit - PLFNCB2 Series


Different types of flexible conduits:

We have three types of flexible conduit.

They are galvanized metal flexible conduit, PVC coated flexible conduit and liquid tight flexible conduit.

Metal flexible conduit is mainly made of galvanized steel strip.

The outer layer of PVC coated flexible conduit and liquid tight flexible conduit is made of PVC material.

Compared with metal flexible conduits such as EMT or IMC, flexible conduits are installed faster and do not require a pipe bender.

The sizes of liquid-tight flexible conduits are from 10mm to 100mm, while those of PVC-coated flexible ducts and galvanized metal flexible ducts are from 6mm to 150mm.
