tubes are often constructed with several plies for better durability
thus giving the potential for years of productive use. Some units are
equipped with synthetic yarn spiral weave or braided with polyester for
more strength. Other forms of reinforcement come in the form of nylon
fabric ply with helical steel wire. They are designed for heavy duty use
in a range of applications such as agriculture, industry, or
With its added strength, a rubber air hose can handle pressures of up
to 250 psi. Others models can even go as high as 300 psi with maximum
burst pressure of 1200 psi. It can function within a temperature range
of -20° To 200° F.
Some models come with bend restrictors, effectively increasing their
bend radius, preventing damage to the tubes. Both the inner tube and the
outer cover are oil resistant giving the equipment a clean look.
