Defense & Military Grade Rubber Parts
During the first Gulf War, Stigall was contacted by a field commander who had a specific problem. The refueling hoses for the Apache Helicopters were getting destroyed during "HOT" Refueling. Stigall worked directly with the Army officer to adapt our Easy Sleeve hose protection to his unit's requirements.
Four weeks after the initial call, Stigall delivered the first Easy Sleeve product for the US Army, direct to the air base. This protective sleeve was then abrasion tested and formally approved for all branches of the military.
With the use of the Easysleeve, the life cycle of each hose is greatly increased.
This same product has been adapted for US Fracking for protecting expensive hard to replace defense grade rubber parts in the field.
