A pneumatic coil hose
, also known as coiled air hose or recoil hose, offers you a more flexible and retractable link between your pneumatic tool and the air source.
They usually come in durable, flexible and resistant materials like polyurethane, nylon, or rubber. Their unique design holds it in a compact status when not in use and extend when needed.
When it comes to buying coil air hoses, customers consider many factors to get whatever fits their needs better, the most important one of which is the type of material used: Coil hoses are either made of polyethylene or PVC. For an occasional use, the ideal hoses are polyethylene ones while for a more intensive usage PVC models would be the best choice.

• Max hose pressure
• Coupler type
