What does a brake hose do?
The function of a brake hose is to carry brake fluid from the brake master cylinder to each individual cylinder in a brake caliper. When the brake fluid compresses the cylinder in the brake caliper, the pressure exerted causes the piston in the brake caliper to push the brake pads out and clamp onto the brake disc, slowing the car down.
You can find rubber brake hoses in almost every car as they are cheap and the majority of drivers comprises of people who only use their vehicles to go from point A to B and will therefore barely notice the difference in braking response. However, rubber brake hoses are not as durable and for people who use their vehicles to go on track or do some spirited driving on the roads will notice the sluggishness of rubber brake hoses.
Benefits of a stainless steel brake hose compared to your stock rubber brake hose.
Upgrading to stainless steel brake hoses will result in decreased amount of time taken to build up critical pressure in your brakes hydraulic system to fully maximise your brakes’ potential as well as a more reliable and durable brake system. This is because the inner brake line material for most stainless steel brake hoses is made of polytetrafluoroethylene or Teflon which is non-reactive, resists cracking, not corrosive and does not expand under pressure as compared to conventional rubber brake hoses. This in turn results in more direct fluid pressure and a more durable brake hose.
