For a compressed air line I would not worry about whether it has an oxygen barrier or not. Drip legs are not a bag idea, a filter and drier on the output of the compressor to is a good idea. Even if pex does get a leak or knocked into it does not shatter like PVC does. There are a few PEX pipes that are stated to be okay to use with compressed air but most don’t explicitly state it. Also double check the pressure rating and what you compressor can put out.
