Abrasion Resistance

Ref: MDG41 –

“All hoses should meet the abrasion resistance requirements of ISO 6805 as a minimum.

Additional abrasions resistance may be required for specific applications. SAE J2006 provides further guidance.”

All Gates hose covers exceed the requirements, in regard to abrasion resistance, as stated in ISO 6805 having been tested in accordance with ISO 6945.13A

In addition to the standard hose covers Hardy Spicer also offers our customers the benefits offered by the hard wearing Gates XtraTuff™ and MegaTuff® hose covers.

The XtraTuff™ cover offers wear resistance 25 times greater than standard hose covers while the MegaTuff® product offers a whopping 300 times the wear resistance of standard hose covers.

All Gates hose cover types meet the requirements of U.S. Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA – 2G) as well as AS 2660 (Flame Resistant & Anti Static – FRAS) by test standards AS 1180.10B and AS 1180.13A. Please refer to Hardy Spicer, or Gates, for specific hose types covered.
