Thermoplastic Hydraulic Hose
Thermoplastic hose is frequently utilized in place of a rubber hydraulic hose when a cleaner working environment is desired. Thermoplastic hoses are commonly employed in medium- to high-pressure hydraulic applications and are frequently seen in mobile and industrial equipment. For handling compressed air and other gases, transferring chemicals, and in water cleaning and paint spray operations, related products are frequently requested.
Thermoplastic hydraulic hose is similar to its rubber version in that it normally comprises an inner tube, one or more layers of reinforcement, and a cover for protection..
Plastics like polyamide, polyester, and even fluoropolymers are used to create the inner tube, which houses the fluid. The cover serves as protection for the interior tube and reinforcement and is commonly constructed of polyester, polyethylene, polyurethane, and PVC.
Thermoplastic hose typically contains one or two layers of reinforcement to add the necessary strength and pressure-holding capacity. Steel wire, polyester, polyamide, or aramid fibers, or other materials, are typically used to create the braided reinforcing layers.
