The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd. announced that two of its high-pressure hoses sold overseas—the SAE100R1S and the SAE100R2S—have been certified by DNV GL, a maritime classification and certification society based in Norway and Germany.
Compliant with the United States’ SAE standard and Europe’s EN standard, Yokohama Rubber’s SAE100R1S and SAE100R2S hoses have to date been sold overseas for use primarily in construction and industrial machinery. Receiving DNV GL certification is a first step toward expanding the markets for these products, the company says in a Press release.
To further strengthen overseas sales of its high-pressure hoses, Yokohama Rubber also plans to seek DNV GL certification of its Versatran high-pressure hose, which it began marketing overseas earlier this year.
