The Magic of NylonNylon, the first synthetic fibre, was developed in the 1930s. It’s a thermoplastic silky material popular in several industries, from clothing to mechanical parts. This versatility owes to Nylon’s fundamental characteristics, such as its high strength, elasticity, abrasion, and chemical resistance. Most importantly, Nylon can be melt-processed into different shapes, making it an ideal material for products like our Nylon recoil air hose.
What is a Recoil Air Hose?A recoil air hose, or self-storing air hose, is a type of tubing designed to retract back to its compact form when unused. This auto-retraction is beneficial, ensuring the hose remains untangled and easy to store, reducing workplace hazards. This feature, coupled with their lightweight nature, makes recoil air hoses an ideal choice in space-conscious, portable, or mobile applications such as DIY projects, automotive repairs, or industrial machinery.
Why Nylon for Recoil Air Hose?Nylon’s inherent properties make it a suitable material for recoil air hoses. These consist of its:
DurabilityNylon is known for its strength and resilience, making it resistant to wear and tear, ensuring the hose’s longevity even under rough conditions.
FlexibilityNylon is remarkably flexible, which means it can be twisted and bent in various directions without breaking. This flexibility is crucial for a recoil air hose, which must regularly expand and retract. The excellent flexibility and coil shape retention make this lightweight air hose ideal for use with air-operated hand tools. It provides superior airflow and is suitable for horizontal or vertical applications. We can also offer a range of polyurethane nylon recoil hoses for extra flexibility. Due to their exceptional abrasion resistance, these hoses are ideal for use in workshop situations.
LightweightNylon hoses are typically lighter than their rubber or PVC counterparts, making them more portable and easier to handle.
Temperature resistanceNylon can withstand a wide range of temperatures, which makes these hoses suitable for different environments.
Chemical resistanceNylon is resistant to many chemicals, oils, and solvents, ensuring the integrity of the hose in various working conditions.
FeaturesThis type of tubing also has a few other features, such as:
- Springform memory and kink resistant
- REACH, RoHS and BSI ISO 9001 resistant
- Abrasion resistant
Tube PreformingWe can also offer pre-forming for our range of tubes in various polymers, PVC, Nylon, polythene and polyurethane to suit a wide range of applications. As a result, Pre-forming can reduce costs by eradicating the need for tube fittings.
Applications of Nylon Recoil Air HoseNylon recoil air hoses are used in a variety of applications, including:
Pneumatic ToolsThe hoses supply compressed air to pneumatic tools in manufacturing, construction, and automotive repair industries.
Robotics and AutomationThe lightness and flexibility of nylon recoil hoses make them ideal for robotic applications, where weight and freedom of movement are essential.
Medical DevicesSpecific medical devices use nylon recoil air hoses because of their flexibility, durability, and chemical resistance.
DIY ProjectsThe ease of use and storage make these hoses a favourite among DIY enthusiasts for airbrushing, inflating tyres, or using air-powered tools.
Wide Range of SizesOur nylon recoil hose comes in a wide range of sizes. The standard nylon recoil hose is black, with other colours available upon request.
EndingsWe supply all standard recoil hoses with plain ends or include 1/4 BSP swivel taper male fittings and spring guards.
Air ToolsWe have specifically designed our nylon recoil hose for use with air tools and other air-related equipment, such as drills, sanders, and sprayers.
