Hose Manufacturer Identification Codes-Colored Yarn Assignments

Date: November 15, 2018

The ARPM, in response to a request from the Society of Automotive Engineers, has established and administered a system of using colored yarns to identify hose manufacturers. Initially, the colored yarn system was applicable to only brake hose manufacturers, but in response to worldwide requests for colored yarn code assignments, the restriction was removed. Most U.S. hose manufacturers have been assigned codes. The use of hose identified by colored yarns incorporated into their structure is more reliable in identifying the manufacturer than hose marked on the exterior surface since the interior colored yarn is more likely to be retained and remain identifiable throughout the entire life of the hose.

Attached for your information is the 2014 catalog of Hose Manufacturer Identification Codes (Colored Yarn Assignments).
Also provided in the Preface is information on the assignment and/or purchase of new codes, the history of the system, and current instructions for its use.

MO-1: Rubber Handbook

Date: May 13, 2015

Rubber manufacturers seek in this handbook to establish a language which will enable engineers to express, on their drawings, requirements which will give them what they need, but not more than they need. To accomplish this, we set up the “language” on the following pages in the form of symbols, charts and definitions.

The manufacturing techniques, capabilities, limitations and problems are different for molded rubber parts than for extruded rubber parts or lathe-cut or cellular (expanded and sponge) rubber parts. Each is treated in a separate chapter with its own charts and definitions. Quality conformance is treated in a separate section.
