Classic Tube’s patented StopFlex Stainless Braided Brake Hoses use cutting edge technology and the best materials to give you maximum braking performance. Stainless braided hoses consist of woven stainless braid over rubber hose and wrapped in rubber hose. This combination offers the best braking performance on the market, great for project cars and race cars.
Classic Tube specifically uses a special grade of 304 double annealed stainless steel tubing to ensure the best balance of malleability, rigidity, spring, and cosmetics for all of our kits for all models. Choosing this stainless steel for your prebent tubing is sure to make a statement on your truck, restoration, race car, or project car.
Classic Tube’s rubber hoses offer an excellent replacement for your brake hoses. Using original patterns and trim-specific brackets and fittings to match the original look, feel, and performance of your OEM brake hoses.
Classic Tube has developed a coating process that duplicates the performance and cosmetic elements of the mid 1980’s domestic OEM change-over to a more corrosion resistant topcoat for automotive steel tubing. This green/gray topcoat includes a hot-dip zinc/aluminum rich topcoat delivering a minimum of 3,000 hours of corrosion resistance in accordance with ASTM B117, ESA-M1A270-A and GM-124M(A/G/E).
Classic Tube has developed a silver galvanized/ terne top coat for its OE steel tubing that duplicates the original Tinned Bundy Weld tubing with better corrosion performance. The most recognizable reference to automotive hydraulic brake tubing is Bundy Tube, sometimes called Bundy pipe. This is because it’s manufactured by the largest supplier Bundy Corporation of Warren, MI. with the 1937 patent of Copper coating and welding process. The first type of domestic hydraulic brake tubing used was Bundy tube. It is a type of double-walled low-carbon steel tube manufactured by rolling a copper-coated steel strip through 720 degrees and resistance brazing the overlapped seam in a process called Bundywelding. Sometime in the late 1930’s the process changed to include a terne coating of the tubing for corrosion protection.
