Paint spray hose is ideal for a wide range of paint types. But it’s important to consider the compatibility of the hose material with the special paint. Different paints may contain various solvents, or additives that can react with certain hose materials. Then degrade or damage the hose. Then which are the paints it is suitable for?
Paint gun hose made from PU, nylon or PVC are suitable for use with water based paints. As they offer good resistance to water and are less likely to be affected by the water-based paint formula.
Oil Based Paints
Airless sprayer hose made from synthetic rubber such as EPDM or Nitrile rubber are typically ideal for oil based paints and solvents. As these rubbers can resist oil based substances and the chemicals commonly found in such paints.
Solvent Based Paints
Some solvent based paints, such as those contain strong solvents like acetone or MEK, may require special hose. Before the paint work, you can consult the supplier if the spray gun hose can deliver the special paint.
In a word, you should ask the supplier if the hose can handle various paints. If not, don’t use it for the paint work. As it will cause damage to the hose and even cause failure. If you have no ideal which airless paint hose, just feel free to consult Orientflex. We are an expert in hose solution.
