Flexible, thermoplastic hydraulic hoses

Compact and flexible TOUGHJACKET thermoplastic hydraulic hoses from Parker Hannifin feature specially formulated polyurethane jackets for maximum abrasion resistance and dependable performance in large-scale, heavy-duty applications.


Parflex TOUGHJACKET hose bend radiusTOUGHJACKET™ flexible, compact thermoplastic hoses with 650x the abrasion resistance of standard rubber hose.

TOUGHJACKET hydraulic hoses are designed to withstand the strains of large-scale, heavy-duty applications. These hoses feature a special Parker-formulated polyurethane jacket to meet industry requirements for highest resistance and exceed the abrasion resistance and durability of rubber hose by 650 times.

Currently, the TOUGHJACKET series includes four hoses for fluid transfer applications and one for ultra high pressure waterblast. Depending on the fluid, the operating temperatures range from -40°F (-40°C) to +250°F (121°C).
