Does anybody know what kind of fluids ac barrier hose can come in contact with? Will ac barrier hose resist oil, gas, etc...
The reason I ask is maybe I can use this ac hose crimper for other things like transmission lines or fuel lines.
Will not work to my knowledge. Fuel will eat the line and barrier hose is not strong enough for hydraulic lines. But you should still get a crimp tool and make a/c lines for all your friends.
As I spent many years training on the proper assembly of high pressure hydraulic hoses, I must warn you that when it comes to making hose assemblies; always use the hose, fittings, dies, and crimping tool recommended by the manufacturer to produce the specific crimp style and finished crimping diameters, that will produce an assembly that will perform for the specific application as advertised. Failure to follow these specific assembly instructions can produce an inferior and unknown performing assembly that becomes the complete liability and responsibility of the assembler.
Some crimping tools will have optional tooling and fittings to work with hose for other applications; this possibility and availability would have to be researched with the manufacturer of the hose crimping tool you are contemplating to purchase. The Mastercool A/C crimping tools offered here do not appear to have this option.
Some of the barrier hoses available do offer additional ratings for air, water, hydraulic fluids, and lubricating oils; but again such details must be obtained from the manufacturer of the specific hose you choose to use.
Just trying to offer thoughts to help you buy the "right" crimper for your needs
