Spanish term or phrase: tronco elástico
From a maritime vessel manual from Spain for translation to British English.

Talking about engine exhaust systems, so surely an elastic, heat-fitting to couple exhaust pipes and silencers.

"Tanto el silenciador como el tubo de escape están conectados al motor mediante troncos elásticos."
"Los tubos están aislados con material aislante, y unidos al motor mediante un tronco flexible."
