This piece will guide you to choose the most appropriate airless paint spray hose regarding the quality and price consideration. You might be confused about the price differs due to the different material and production process. When you chose the cheaper one, you worry about the quality. Don’t worry, this piece will tell you which airless paint spray hose is the most suitable for your project.
The airless paint spray hose is an important component of the paint spray system. The airless paint spray hoses designed for high pressure spray system to transfer paint from paint cup to the nozzle. They can be used for conveying paints, solvents, aggressive fluids, etc. Airless paint spray hose works with airless piston pumps, helping with efficiently lay down a lot of paint with thick latex paints and primers.
For purchasing the airless paint spray hoses, you might need to basically know what the airless paint spray hose is. The construction of airless paint spray hose contains a poly-amide tube which is chemical and solvents resistant, reinforced by multi plies high tensile braided steel wire or braided polyester yarn. The cover is polyurethane which has a good performance on abrasion resistance. You can choose the blue, black, red, or gray colors. The sizes are 1/4’’, 5/16’’, and 3/8’’. The common lengths are 1.5, 2, 7.5, 10, 15, and 30 meters. Due to different reinforcement choices, the airless paint spray hoses can withstand 22.7, 40, or 50 MPa accordingly. You can require the working pressure based on your needs. The poly-amide internal core is able to withstand -40 ℃ to 100 ℃ temperature, but while the working temperature is above 85 ℃, the serve life of airless paint spray hoses will be reduced.
To talk about the quality of airless paint spray hoses, there are several factors that you can have a look, including corrosion resistance, acid and alkali resistance, density, water absorption, weather resistance, abrasion resistance, etc. There are different qualities of airless paint spray hoses concerning these factors. If you require the paint spray hose to spray latex paints or putty powder, there will be less difference. However, the difference will be obvious when the paint is sprayed. Thus, if your industry requires a high pressure airless spray hose to spray paint, OrIentflex suggests you to choose the best quality one PA12. If you need to control the cost, you can choose PA6 material which might has relatively lower performance on above factors, meanwhile the reinforcement piles can be reduced to reduce the price.
