Do the other hoses have a point? Yes!

Yesterday I mentioned PTFE hose – which we said has some excellent qualities and was, in fact, the top-of-the-line. That’s great. I hope I sold you on the benefits of good ol’ polytetrafluoroethylene. But if it’s so wonderful, why do we have ‘other’ hoses in stock?

Well, sometimes, like Humphrey Bogart said: “a hotdog at the ballpark is better than a steak at the Ritz.” Sometimes, you don’t need all that fancy stuff and you just need a hose to get the job done.

Airless ⅛” Hose
This airless 1/8″ hose is if you need a smaller hose to act as a ‘whip’ so that the smaller, final section of the hose that is held up by the user weighs as little as possible to prevent fatigue.

Stainless Steel Braided Hose

A stainless steel hose has excellent flexibility and is designed for confined, potentially explosive atmospheres. Therefore, this is NOT where you want to get cute! Stainless steel braided hose ensures full surface conductivity and provides excellent resistance to paints, solvents, and chemicals.

Air Assisted Airless Welded Twin Hose

Equipped on an air-assisted airless paint sprayer, the KMW23 high-pressure hose series is a welded twin hose comprising a 3/16” airless paint sprayer hose and a 1/4″ pneumatic hose. Each hose is color-coded for easy identification and can be used with your Graco air-assisted airless spray gun and Wagner spray gun.

Teflon Core Hose

KM Coating offers a wide variety of specialty hoses designed for your airless paint sprayer or air-assisted airless paint sprayer. Our PTFE hose with a thermoplastic cover is available in 1/8” ID to 1/2″ ID and is rated up to 5,000 PSI. This Teflon core hose is able to be used in extremely high and low temperatures and chemically resistant of all common solvents including acids and bases.
