In this guide, you will find everything basically important about the thermoplastic hydraulic hose.

So this is the complete guide to the thermoplastic hydraulic hose.

Let’s dive right in now!

What Is Thermoplastic Hydraulic Hose?

The thermoplastic hydraulic hose is a well-designed hydraulic hose, which is much more flexible, durable, and abrasion-resistant.

The hydraulic hoses thermoplastic can be widely applied in the medium-pressure to high-pressure hydraulic systems. And thermoplastic hoses are commonly used for mobile and industrial equipment, which need a high-pressure hydraulic working system.

Compared with the regular hydraulic hose, the thermoplastic hydraulic hose is much thinner, with the same inside diameter, so the thermoplastic hydraulic hose has much less wall thickness.

What Thermoplastic Hydraulic Hose Made of?

Similar to the hydraulic hose structure, the thermoplastic hydraulic hose has the inner tube, reinforcement, and outer cover.

Compared with the regular hydraulic hose, the thermoplastic hydraulic hose is made of Nylon plastic. The thermoplastic hose consists of an oil-resistant thermoplastic inner tube (made of Nylon), one fiber braided reinforcement, thermoplastic cover that is oil and weather-resistant.

The inner tube, touching the hydraulic fluids directly, is made of plastics, including polyamide, polyester, and even fluoropolymers. And the outer cover can protect the middle reinforced layer, which is made of the materials, such as polyester, polyethylene, polyurethane, and PVC.

Alternative materials like polyester elastomer or polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) can be added to the thermoplastic hydraulic hose to achieve the desired performance.

Here we have 2 thermoplastic hydraulic hoses, including SAE 100R7 and SAE 100R8. The thermoplastic hydraulic hose is structured with 3 layers.

Tube: Oil-resistant synthetic thermoplastic core (Nylon)

Reinforcement: Two braids of high tensile synthetic fiber, one layer of braided fiber reinforcement.

Cover: Abrasion-resistant polyurethane, Nylon thermoplastic cover.

You can use the thermoplastic hydraulic hose at the temperature of -40°C to +100°C.
