HBD/Thermoid® Aeroduct® Air Start Hose is built with specialized materials to ensure reliability and safe use. The hose is constructed from specially compounded silicone rubber that will withstand temperatures up to 500°F (260°C) and as low as ‑80°F (-62°C).
To enhance dimensional stability and flexibility, the hose is wrapped in cross-weave polyester cord. The cross-weave construction is integrally lock-bonded to the silicone hose to assure a burst strength greater than 450 psi (3.100 kPa). The hose is mold, mildew, and UV resistant and withstands exposure to common ramp chemicals including most solvents, oils, fuels, and Skydrol.

AVAILABLE IN FOUR DESIGNS TO PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT
Replaceable leno weave or open-braided scuffer jackets are used to protect the hose and extend the hose service life. Scuff Jackets provide a layer of protection to the hose as it is dragged across the tarmac between storage and the point of use. Without a Scuff Jacket, the hose cannot endure wear from constant usage.
50859 Lightweight Scuff Jacket
50859LW series is a leno weave scuff jacket with a light weight wearstrip. This product features a closely woven treated fabric cover and an abrasive resistant rubber wearstrip.
50859LWHV Lightweight HiVis Heavy Duty Scuff Jacket
50859LWHV series is the same leno weave scuff jacket as above with an added high visibility coating spiraled around the outer cover that provides easy visibility. This is designed to help deter trip hazards and equipment run-overs that could potentially destroy the hose.
50859HD Standard Heavy Duty Scuff Jacket
50859HD series is the long time industry standard scuff cover. It has the same basic construction as the rest of the 50859 line, but with a heavy duty extruded wearstrip.
1106BR Military Scuff Jacket
1106BR series features an open weaved synthetic yarn with extruded abrasion-resistant rubber vulcanized wearstrip. This product is predominate in military applications
