Spiral Sleeves



The safety conditions to which all hydraulic components must conform represent a
critical factor when environmental conditions become very tough and adequate
protection is vital for component life. The plastic spiral is a plastic protective spiral
sleeve that has been designed, tested, and manufactured to offer to the end user
a product able to suit almost any field requirements.

General Specifications

Typical Cross Section

  Spiral Sleeve
spiral wrap cross section


The plastic spiral protection is a thermoplastic extruded spiral with a rounded external
surface, smoothed edges, and a ribbed internal profile for the protection and bundling
of hoses, cables, wires, or similar items.

Light, yet crush resistant
Stays in place on the hose without sliding
Spirals easily overlap offering greater protection
Excellent memory
Springs back when twisted and pulled

Spiral Protection Chemical Compatibility Chart

The information given in this chart should be used only as a guide. Our laboratory testing
cannot possibly duplicate all combinations of environmental factors or conditions present
during applied service. We also strongly recommend that you refer to the raw material
manufacturer's or supplier's Web site reference materials for more information.

Very Good Chemical Compatibility

Gasoline Oil Water
Ionic Metallic Solutions Superior Alcohols  
Mineral Oil Vegetable Oil  

Poor Chemical Compatibility

Acetone Ethyl Acetate
Chlorine Solvent Methyl Acetate

Chemical Compatibility Notes

1) [Water]: Product becomes more flexible after a prolonged exposure to
moisture or water
2) [Strong Acids]: Strong acids such as HCI may have some corrosive action
3) [Strong Bases]: Strong bases such as NaOH may have some corrosive action
4) [Inferior Alcohols]: Interior alcohols such as ethylic and buthylic alcohol may, after a prolonged immersion, expand the product but they do not act as a solvent
