Recommended For: TH18 hose meets or exceeds performance requirements of SAE 100R18 with a significantly tighter bend radius. Suitable for petroleum or synthetic-based hydraulic fluids in hydraulic systems. TH18 is ideal for industrial and agricultural applications exposed to low temperatures or cyclic and quick temperature changes. Remains highly flexible in cold weather conditions and is resistant to hydraulic fluids, high temperatures, aging and weathering.
Tube: Polyester elastomer.
Reinforcement: One band of synthetic fiber.
Cover: Black, special polyester, perforated.
Temperature Range: -67°F to +212°F (-55°C to +100°C) continuous service for petroleum and synthetic oils. Maximum of +158°F (+70°C) for water-based fluids.
