The stiff extruded PTFE liner with tightly woven high-tensile stainless steel outer braid solves the brake pedal travel problem by eliminating line swell. This increases the firmness and feel of the brake pedal, which allows you to modulate brakes more efficiently. Compatible with alcohol, gas, E85, diesel, hydrocarbon fuels, nitromethane, mineral and synthetic lubricants, and high-density fuel additives.
In the mid-1960's, Earl's pioneered the use of the armored flex hose of extruded PTFE to solve the brake line expansion problem associated with the new disc brake systems. The stiffness of the PTFE liner combined with the tightly woven high tensile stainless steel outer braid solved the pedal travel problem. By eliminating the line swell it also dramatically increased the firmess and feel of the brake pedal which allowed drivers to modulate the brakes more efficiently. Improved abrasion resistance and increased temperature capacity are secondary advantages.
The PVC coating on some variants of Speed-Flex hose provides improved appearance and abrasion resistance as compared to the standard stainless braid. Although the coating color is new, the hose is Speed-Flex and has all the same features, benefits, and durability that customers have counted on for many years.
For use with Steel Speed-Seal Hose Ends or Aluminum Speed-Seal Hose Ends ONLY.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
