RAMPTECH Airstart Couplings and Hose
AIRSTART Hose & Scuff
Built to exceed the demanding needs of the global aviation industry.
HBD/Thermoid® Aeroduct® Jet Starter Hose is built with specialized materials to ensure the most reliable and safest use. The hose consists of compounded silicone rubber to withstand temperatures up to 500°F and is reinforced with a cross weave polyester cord to assure high burst strength greater than 450 psi. The cross weave polyester cord also enhances dimensional stability and flexibility. Cross weave construction is used to ensure each strand of the core is integrally lock-bonded to the silicone hose.
The hose is resistant to most solvents, Skydrol, fuels, UV, and is treated to resist mold and mildew.

AERODUCT® SCUFF JACKETS
Aeroduct® replaceable Scuff Jackets protect the duct from damage caused by dragging and scuffing over ramp surfaces. The low profile scuff strip minimizes hang-up on equipment or other obstacles.
HBD/Thermoid® Aeroduct® Scuff Jackets come in three different options including the Standard Heavy Duty, Lightweight Heavy Duty, Lightweight Heavy Duty with a hi-vis finish, and a Military Grade scuff. All scuffs are designed to meet the needs of any GSE operational requirement. All three jackets offer a superior level of protection to your Jet Starter Hose investment.
HBD/THERMOID® AERODUCT® HEAVY DUTY SCUFF JACKETS
Proven year after year to be the industry leader. The best in overall product life, wear resistance and UV resistance, which collectively adds life to the Jet Starter Hose.
The Standard Heavy Duty series is the HBD/Thermoid® legacy scuff jacket, the longtime industry standard. This jacket uses closely woven leno weave construction. The woven material has an extruded abrasion-resistant rubber wear strip vulcanized into the leno weave material in a spiral configuration.
The Heavy Duty Lightweight series is made the same way as the Heavy Duty series but uses a lightweight leno weave giving the hose all the protective capability that HBD/Thermoid® Aeroduct® Scuff Jackets have given the GSE industry for decades. This new lightweight scuff jacket offers a reduced drag rating of up to 25%.
The hi-vis version is the same construction of the lightweight jacket with an added highly visible safety stripe to help minimize the risk of tripping and damage caused by equipment run overs.
The Military Grade series scuff jacket features polyester yarn with extruded abrasion-resistant rubber vulcanized in a spiral to the polyester jacket. This series is sometimes known as military scuff and is typically not used in commercial GSE applications.
