Extreme Performance

A typical heavy truck uses approximately 300 meters of air brake tubing (including trailer) to ensure safe and efficient braking during a long service lifetime. These brake tubes operate under alternating conditions of long-lasting positive pressure and are designed to operate safely at high and low temperatures. They are also required to demonstrate tremendous mechanical impact resistance and must resist a wide array of chemicals - most notably the aggressive and corrosive zinc chloride salt, a common ingredient in road salt. 

This balance of extreme performance properties makes such tubing also suitable for a wide assortment of heavy duty industrial hydraulic and pneumatic tubing applications.
