They're probably rated for 150PSI but can take much more. How high do you plan on taking them? They do look cheaper than the fittings generally used in hybrids but they're probably okay up to 1000PSI.

Wasnt going to used them for a hybrid, just a pneumatic. And about 800PSI

Also can you use hydrolic fittings? I found a site that sells 3000psi rated hyrdrolic fittings for about 5 quid for a equal 1/2 tee, you can guess the prices for that.

I would be surprised if any of those blew up at less than 2000 psi, especially the stainless one.
