The product standard on rubber hoses for compressed air specifies requirements for the elastomeric compounds and the textile-reinforced hoses used. A distinction is made between three types, three classes and two categories of rubber hoses with a maximum working pressure of up to 25 bars and over an operating temperature range of -40 °C to +70 °C, depending on the type and category.
