I do not know what you mean by "sweat"

modern hoses are made from very advanced compounds (EDPM) etc. and are virtually unafected by oil products -- they also can take acids/ strong bases.

They are attacked all the time by oils in autos - old rubber hoses were mostly affected by the heat -- causing them to crack -- jsut like ruber will on a hose left in the sun -- this by UV
