The three basic types of reinforcement are:
• Braided
• Spiraled
• Helical

Braided reinforcement can be wire, textile and have single or multiple layers.

Spiraled reinforcement on hydraulic hose is typically wire or textile and has four or six layers (plies). Spiral-reinforced hose can typically handle more severe applications with longer impulse service life.

Helical coil reinforcement keeps the hose from collapsing during suction (vacuum) and tight bending.
