Hose for Automotive & Motercycle Paintings
Paint and Air Hose for Automobile and Motorcycle Manufacturing Plants
When manual painting applications are required, air and paint hoses are also needed to supply paints and air. HAKKO CORPORATION manufactures various types of hoses for this application.

Current Problem: Need Measurements against Static Electricity
Situations: Our painting booth uses a lot of paints and thinners. Static electricity has been charged to the spray gun, which has been a very big issue. So far, we did not take any measurements to deal with static electricity. However, the factory manager was informed that due to the increasing awareness of workplace safety, we have to use a hose which prevents the charges of static electricity to the spray gun.
Solutions: Solvent Transfer Hose [E-SV]
HAKKO CORPORATION introduces Solvent Transfer Hose [E-SV]. E-SV is made of polyamide, showing resistance against solvent-based paints. Also, E-SV includes a steel fiber and conductive polyurethane line, so they can prevent the static electricity charged to the spray gun.
Inner Diameter : 6.5 – 9.5mm
A. Due to the structure of ground wire and conductive polyurethane line, without taking the ground wire out of the hose and by attaching our original fittings to the hose, you can eliminate the static electricity charged to spray gun.
B. With the ground wire and the conductive line, regardless of hose length, it shows higher ability to remove the static electricity. (Patent Registered)
C. Due to the higher ability of removing the static electricity charged to the spray gun, some customers choose E-SV for air piping.

One more Point!
Due to the increasing awareness of environmental friendliness, paints used in automobile industry have been shifting from solvent-based paints to water-based paints. Most water-based paints include alcohol, amine, and Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK). Those pigments make Polyamide hose (such as Solvent Transfer Hose [E-SV] and Paint Flex-Nylon Hose [E-PFN]) swellen, leading to short duration of hose. Thus, for water-based paints, we recommend Paint Flex-Fluorine Hose (Ground Wire Type) [E-PFFG].
