Recommended For: TH18NC 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. TH18NC non-conductive hoses are suitable for use in high-voltage applications. Remains highly flexible in cold weather conditions and is resistant to hydraulic fluids, high temperatures, aging and weathering.
Tube: Polyester elastomer.
Reinforcement: Two bands of synthetic fiber.
Cover: Special polyester, orange (industry-accepted color for non-conductive hose), non-perforated for applications requiring electrical non-conductivity. Meets SAE 100R18 Electrical Conductivity Test. Maximum leakage shall not exceed 50 microamperes when subjected to 75kV/ft for five minutes.
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.
