Pig’s Tail Protective Spiral Wrapping

Pig’s Tail™ protective spiral wrap is manufactured from tough HDPE (high density polyethylene). It is easy to install and designed to provide heavy duty protection to hydraulic hoses.


Pig’s Tail™ protective spiral wrap helps protect your investment from damage and wear, and is ideal for heavy duty bundling and protection.

A main component in many industrial processes is the hydraulic hose, which if damaged by wear or accidents, can seriously impact productivity. This can lead to significant costs to operations, not only for the value of the hose that needs to be placed, but also by the financial impact caused by unplanned equipment downtime and lost production. Pig’s Tail™ spiral wrap provides a quick and cost-effective method for minimizing these production losses and protecting vital hoses and connections.

Pig’s Tail™ spiral wrap is designed specifically for heavy duty bundling and protection of hydraulic and pneumatic hoses used across various industries. Available in a wide range of dimensions and fitting options, Pig’s Tail™ is the solution made to protect your critical cabling and connections from abrasion, misuse, poor maintenance or severe working environments.
