Hydraulic hose OK for compressed air?

Harbor Freight has Hydraulic hose rated at 3500 psi, 4' long. I want to use it between my compressor and air delivery pipe system (for anti-vibration purposes) Regardless of quality of HF, I just want to know if hydraulic hose is OK for air? Is there anything about it that would contaminate the air? thanks

You bet it will work, probably the best choice of most anything you could use.

Yep...it will work good. Hydraulic hose usually comes two ways...single braid and double braid. The double braid is the best.
