Gates Releases Air Hose That Lays Flat and Resists Kinks

Gates Corp. has released an air hose engineered to lay flat, the Gates Hybrid Polymer Air Hose.

A standard air hose can kink, curl, and require extra effort. Gates says its new Hybrid Polymer Air Hose has zero memory, which makes the job easier with every torque, cut or grind.

The new hose will also withstand high temperatures up to 170°F, a requirement for certain paint booths, as well as maintain excellent flexibility in extreme cold temperatures down to -40 F, according to Gates.

Other features include lightweight and extremely flexible construction, superior bend radius, and easy coiling after use.
