Spraypainting Nylon Coil Pressure Hose

Unread postAuthor: ammosmoke » Sat Sep 15, 2007 1:32 pm

I was thinking of spraypainting my air compressor hose with some matte black krylon fusion spraypaint, but I wasn't sure if it would weaken the hose... Any ideas? I want to spray it because it is bright yellow, and I am going to be using it for airsoft wars. (I'll post my gun soon!) Its connected to a 5 gal tank on my back, which i was thinking about spraying also, but I may just find some black cloth to cover it with, as the top sticks out of my backpack. So, do you think it would do anything to it?

Not sure about the spray paint, but you could always wrap it in black electrical tape.

How long is your hose? it would probably take less time to wrap it then spray painting it and letting it dry...

I've spray painted air compressor hose and garden hose before - doesn't seem to weaken the hose at all, but the paint will crack/flake off over time, so be ready to re-paint it in a few months.

Just my two cents.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

Electrical tape is a viable option. It won't take that long, I mean, how much hose are you planning on dragging through the woods anyway?

Edit- missed your other post. If you are really going to take 10ft with you, consider taping it horizontaly with some of the wide electrical tap.

It's one of those curly air hoses right? My grandpa has had one for a long time on his air compressor and it's covered in plenty of spay paint it hasn't hurt it any. But if you don't want to try it, just get some black duct tape. But if your willing shell out some more cash go to wal-mart and get some camo duct tape.

(In response to Fnord) Well, actually its more like 20ft,(I stretched it out) but coiled up its only about 4. And its really light.

I suppose I could just get some tape, but really, it will take about 1.5 hours to wrap.

get a shorter hose... and buy a "gun sleeve" that goes over a rifle... it would just slide over the hose and use zip straps to hold it in place.

I did a similar thing, although not as long, with one of my paintball grenade launchers last year. I had a hell of a time with the fusion paint staying stuck (it would flake and crack every time you moved).

I fixed the problem by using the Fusion (or whatever brand you are using) plastic PRIMER. Then I sprayed over that in a camo tone with regular spraypaint.

Fusion paint bonds with the plastic which is what allows the paint to cover and dry. The regular spraypaint bonds to the fusion and has much more give in it for movement and temperature changes. The advantage of using the muted camo paint over the fusion was it even when it does flake and crack (which all paint will in the use you are describing) it is not as noticible and still has a highly muted color instead of bright orange like mine was or yours that is yellow.

You could go with black but black on yellow is one of the fastest combinations for the human eye to focus on. I would suggest a desert tan or khaki color that somewhat blends and is in the same family as yellow. And keep the can around cause you will want to touch it up from time to time.

Or you could try and buy a black coil hose.

just make your own hose to length with some hose barbs clamst and some hose you might even be able to get it in black or green. and taping that small amount would be a cake walk.
