High-pressure, silicone rubber, thermoplastic or Teflon-reinforced hose is a hydraulic hose that carries fluid to convey force within hydraulic machinery. In the early 1940s, hydraulic machines began to be used after engineers realized that hydraulic structures were more flexible, lighter in weight and self-lubricating. World War II spurred the development of military-based hydraulic equipment. The invention of lightweight hydraulic hoses further opened the door for a large variety of new, high-powered hydraulic-based machines to be produced.
