Prior to 1930, copper and brass, having excellent pressure capability and anti-corrosion characteristics, were the materials of choice for brake tubing. By post World War Two, automotive industry mass production economics dictated adoption of a low-cost form of double wrapped steel tubing that is still in use today worldwide. Current production steel tubing passes the 60 cycle test minimum requirement but fails well before 120 test cycles. EziBend 90-10 Copper Nickel tubing completed 200 test cycles with essentially no reduction of the original burst strength. Now use EziBend corrosion-resistant tubing. It is the only way to insure continued effective corrosion resistance. We can make almost a ny Brake or Clutch Hose to suit any type of vehicle. All Hoses we make are D.

Determined that the Braided Stainless Brake Hoses used for Street use needed to have a coating to protect the inner Teflon tube.

Then as the hoses moved it acted like sand paper and wore away the inner tube causing failure. What is a Whip Insert? The Whip Insert is placed on the end of the Braided Stainless Brake Hose before we place the fitting on for crimping. The Insert is made with a special aluminum that is a buffer between the stainless hose and steel fitting. This is required to prevent premature hose wear if there is any side movement (Whip) as the hose is used, being a softer material it buffers some of the motion.
