Brake Fuel Transmission Lines

Standard Steel

The entry-level replacement line in the AGS brake line category is still an excellent choice for aftermarket fluid transfer line repair and replacement. The steel lines and tubing are constructed with safety and longevity in mind. The tubing is produced by wrapping copper-coated steel around itself twice to form the tubing. This double-wall tube is what provides the strength and structural integrity to withstand the extreme pressures required, yet still remain pliable enough to be formed and bent to the shapes required to be routed beneath the vehicle. The finished tube is fused and zinc-coated to provide excellent rust and corrosion resistance as well.

The AGS Standard Steel line has been the choice of professional installers/mechanics and do-it-yourself mechanics for many years. When properly installed, the standard steel line can provide a long-lasting repair or replacement for many types of vehicles and for all types of fluid transfer systems, including braking systems. However, when a vehicle is expected to see harsh environments like snow, road treatments, salt, air, etc...on a regular basis or when the longest replacement life is required; other AGS premium lines like Poly-Armour® and NiCopp® should be considered.

• Excellent Resistance to Rust and Corrosion
• DOT Approved for Hydraulic Brake Systems
• Bends and Forms without Kinking
• Available in Coils of 25'
• Finished Lines Available for Domestic & Import

Standard Steel lines and tubing meet the following specifications:
SAEJ527b
GM123M
SAEJ1290
DIN 74234

Poly-Armour®

Poly-Armour® has become the new standard in brake line replacement over the last several years. Surpassing all competitors as THE choice for both professionals and do-it-yourselfers when it comes to brake, fuel, and transmission line repair. Poly-Armour® is different from anything else on the market due to its PVF or Poly-Vinyl Fluorine coat. This coating is actually a highly durable 'plastic' coating that is 'baked and cured' to the line. This provides extra protection from corrosion, debris, and road surfacing solutions. It also offers superior bend-ability without kinking. That makes Poly-Armour® the easiest to work with line - period!

Underneath the PVF-coating is a double-wall, low carbon steel, copper brazed tubing which meets all international and U.S. requirements for brake tubing. The difference being that Poly-Armour® offers 30 times the corrosion resistance of galvanized steel alone. PVF-coated lines are now the standard in many vehicles on the road today, including: Volkswagen/Audi, Honda, Toyota, and Mercedes. Considered a premium line, Poly-Armour® should be used on any vehicle that will see any type of harsh environment including snow, road treatments, salt air, dirt/gravel, etc. When extending the life of the lines is important, Poly-Armour® should also be used, such as on commercial vehicles or when exact OEM replacement is required or desired.

• Poly-Armour® is 30x More Resistant to Corrosion
• DOT Approved for Hydraulic Brake Systems
• Bends Easier Than Standard Steel Tubing
• Available in Coils of 25'
• Finished Lines Available for Domestic & Import

Poly-Armour® lines and tubing meet the following specifications:
SAEJ527b
GM123M
SAEJ1290
DIN 74234

NiCopp®

DOT APPROVED
FOR BRAKE AND GENERAL
AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS

NiCopp® is a nickel-copper alloy brake tubing that meets SAE Standard J1047 and ISO 4038, meeting all international and U.S. requirements for brake tubing. This alloy is approximately 9.2% nickel, 1.4% iron, 0.8% manganese, and 88.6% copper. Under the UNS system, this alloy is designated as UNS C70600. NiCopp® therefore has the strength and structural integrity of steel lines, but with the added benefit of being much more corrosion resistant. NiCopp® is also easier to bend and form than steel tubing. Nickel-copper, commonly referred to as '90-10 copper', has been used on several European vehicle brake systems since the 1970's, including: Volvo, Audi, Porsche, and Aston Martin.

NiCopp® has been used on hydraulic/fluid transfer systems on vehicles where steel lines and tubing are commonly used. This includes brake, fuel and transmission systems. NiCopp® is considered the super-premium brand in brake lines and should be considered where the underbody of the vehicle is subjected to the harshest environments, where the longest life-span for lines is required, and/or where direct OEM replacement is desired.

• NiCopp® Does Not Rust or Corrode
• DOT Approved for Hydraulic Brake Systems
• Bends 58% Easier than Steel Tubing
• Available in Coils of 25', 50', and 100'
• Finished Lines Available for Domestic & Import
• Black Oxide Fittings 2X Corrosion Resistance

NiCopp® lines and tubing meet the following specifications:
SAEJ1047
ISO 4038
SAEJ1650
DIN 74234
