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. Proudly Made in the USA, Pig’s Tail spiral wrap 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 accident, can have a major impact on productivity. The cost of such failure cannot simply be measured in terms of the replacement cost of the hose, but also by the financial impact caused by unplanned equipment downtime and lost production. “Pig’s Tail”™ Protective Wrapping provides a quick and cost effective method for minimizing these production losses.

As the name suggests Pig’s Tail™ spiral wrap is a HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) protective spiral wrap designed specifically for heavy duty bundling and protection of hydraulic and pneumatic hoses used across various industries. It serves as a cost effective and quick method for minimizing heavy production losses. It protects against production loses and damage caused by depreciation, abrasion, regular misuse, poor maintenance, or severe working environments. Pig’s Tail Spiral Wrap is available in wide range of dimension and fits.
