I want to replace some of the air lines on my car. Went shopping, and was dazzled by the number of materials available for air lines (pneumatic tubing). It seems the most common are (by simple names only):
Polyethylene
Vinyl
Polyurethane
Dennis sells Vinyl on Rover-Renovations, so I thought it would be a safe bet. However, when I looked at the pressure rating, they are only rated for 0-150psi/0-990kPa. This seems a bit low considering the operating pressure of the EAS system.
Can anybody shed some light on the matter? What is the correct type of air line to buy for repair?

Hi Guys
Thanks for the replies. Spiggy, I believe the place you're referring to is Provey. They're about 2km from my house, and it's in their catalogue that I saw the pressure rating up to 10bar. I phoned a guy who works at Festo, and apparently the tubing they use for air suspension on big trucks is rated to 16bar. I think I'll get some of that, would feel a bit safer (even if it is slightly more expensive).

Hi,

have you bought the airline yet?

If not, would you consider adding some for me?

6mm and 8mm.

No problem Spiggy, I was planning on getting some extra. I'm sure you have my e-mail address? Let me know what you need, and I'll make sure I order enough. I'm also getting some quick-connectors while I'm at it...
