This means that no matter which Mackay Hoses you choose out of the thousands on offer, each one will be individually made to the most precise dimensions and levels of performance.

All Mackay Hoses are manufactured with 3 key considerations in mind, all geared towards achieving the philosophy of outstanding, cost effective performance.

EXACT STANDARDS

  • Many Mackay hoses will come on our website with OE specifications
  • These can only be shown when a product meets a vehicle manufacturer’s exacting standards of performance and reliability
  • Mackay Rubber products are exported worldwide, and Holden in particular contract Mackay as an OE producer of many hoses for their famous Commodore range 

MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT

  • Rubber technology has come leaps and bounds in the last few decades, something Mackay has constantly strived to be a part of
  • Mackay utilise the latest rubber compounds, engineered rubber and rubber/metal composites in the production of all of their hoses, seals and bushings
  • The rubbers used in Mackay hoses are made resistant to electromagnetic degradation, water, oil and fuel where necessary to ensure the ultimate in reliability

PRODUCTION DEVELOPMENT

  • Mackay Rubber have also stayed at the forefront of production techniques, using the latest scanning and 3D modelling technology where possible to ensure the best attention to detail
  • This has made it incredibly easy for Mackay Rubber to manufacture thousands of different hoses and fittings to exact dimensions with almost no margain of error
