NiCopp Nickel/Copper Brake Line Tubing Coil, 3/16" x 25'

Part No. CNC-325 Warranty  

Fit of this part varies by vehicle & equipment specs Type of Fit

3/16" x 25' Nickel/Copper/Iron Alloy Tubing. When combined with tube nuts and flaring tool, coils are an economical solution for shops that want to build their own lines, custom lengths or non-standard applications. Use to fabricate 3/16" Domestic, European, Japanese, British, and adapter brake lines. 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, BS2871

      Comments about NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 3/16" x 25:

      In Upstate NY steel brake lines have a very short lifespan. I use FedHill when I have it or Nickel Copper Alloy from Advanced. The Nickel Copper works fine with traditional flare tools. I used the 3/16" on my 1999 Dodge 3500. A 25' roll did everything but the lines between the master cylinder and ABS. Their were two sets of rusted out steel lines along the frame rail, last mechanic left the rusted lines and put the new steel next to it....Don't do that! Replacing with steel is almost a waste of time! Good Stuff and worth the money.

        Comments about NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 3/16" x 25:

        This product takes the drudgery out of replacing rusty brake lines and will never rust out again.
        It flares well and forms easily without kinking
        which makes it possible to bend around frames and corners to do one piece runs which eliminates joints and extra fittings. Double flaring and bubble flaring this soft tubing is much easier than the old steel tubing.
        The Bubble flaring tool for 3/16" is the same as 4.76 mm so don't be confused by the metric equivalent. I always disliked brake line repairs but this nickel copper line makes the job much easier.

          The nickel copper brake line bent easily enough that a tubing bender was not required, but strong enough not to collapse in the radius when bending by hand.

            I have changed a lot of brake lines and this is the easiest line I have ever used. It bends easily but isn't flimsy, it flares easily and holds the flare and it won't rust. It is the best of all worlds and it is American made.

              Comments about NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 3/16" x 25:

              The Nicopp brake line is easy to bend to your shape yet strong enough to provide the service you need. Standard 45 degree flaring is easy as well as bubble flaring. You will notice that the Nicopp brake line is a little softer than steel line so it requires a softer touch when flaring.
              I was less frustrated by using this brake line. It really is much easier to use!!!

                    Metal brake lines are in constant need of repairs with Michingan salt and winters. Add to winter, living on rural gravel roads, where the county brines the roadbed several times a summer, to keep dust down, and a product like this becomes a lifesaver/timesaver. Onece fixed with this product, brake lines won't have to be replaced again for a long time.

                        A:

                        Hi Fiolosm, this NiCopp Nickel Copper Alloy Brake Line Coil - 3/16" x 25 - part# CNC-325 would be an ideal brake line for your 2002 GMC Sierra 1500. You would need a brake line flaring tool. Begin by using a tubing clamp to cut the line to the length you need. Then, before you make the flare, place the brake line fitting (which will eventually connect the line to other parts of the braking system) over the tube. Place the tubing in a clamp to hold it steady. Next, take the flaring tool and insert it into the end of the tube you want flared. The flaring tool looks a little bit like a pitchfork with three prongs. Two prongs attach to the clamp holding the brake line, and the third prong (the one in the middle) actually flares the line. It's mobile; you screw it in and out of the line, which widens it, making the flare.A proper flare will be even and centered on the opening of the brake fitting. You'll want to take your time with this operation.

                        No you have bend using the old line as a sample. You might get prebent from a dealer but it will cost you.
