Poly-Armour PVF Steel Brake Line Tubing Coil, 3/16" x 25'

Part No. PAC-325 Warranty  

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

Coils with the same copper-brazed, double-walled, steel or copper nickel alloy tubing as used in our pre-made lines. 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. 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 line to work with - 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 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' and 50' - Finished Lines Available for Domestic & Import Poly-Armour lines and tubing meet the following specifications: SAEJ527b, GM123M, SAEJ1290, DIN 74234

    This 25' Coil will save you $$ when you have to replace long brake lines - especially on Vans - Front-to-back line replacement.Rather than buy individual fittings at $2 each, , buy the shortest lengths of made-up fittings & line & cut the line to get the fittings [...]This tubing saved me a lot of time!

    Coating damages easily

    Should stay rust free longer than standard steel line. Would be nice to have longer coils available.
    The plastic coating damages easily if not very careful forming, bending, and during installation.

      Comments about Poly-Armour PVF Steel Brake Line Coil - 3/16" x 25':

      The best cost effective way to deal with brake lines by far, and Advance has the best price/deals on it... It does tend to surface rust fairly quickly, so I always spray paint the lines before I install them anymore - buys you added years of service this way... Remember to lube all the fittings and surfaces generously when you assemble them - it really helps later on when it's time to service them again...

        This brake line has a coating that keeps it from rusting, so you wont need to do it again, and it works very good. If you need more than 1 stick of the other stuff, this is probably going to cost less too.

                    This 3/16 brake line worked well on a 1997 chevrolet silverado 4x4 extended cab pickup truck. i used it to replace the rear axle brake lines from the distribution block to each wheel cylinder. The line was easily bend and double flare to create a factory line fit with the advantage of the PVF coating to prevent the rust issues of the factory steel lines. This is also a cheap alternative for people with mechanical skills to eliminate a design flaw by chevrolet by not using coated brake lines from factory.

                          Good for long lengths,WITHOUT unions.Just be sure to use a GOOD flairing tool and tubing bender.I'm curious to see how well it holds up this winter,with the ice,snow and rock salt. I ALWAYS power wash the chassis, several times during and after seasonal changes.

                                If you have a bad break line do yourself a favor just replace the whole line buy the time you get done buying unions and trying to flare old lines you can have one solid line front to back the way it ment to be. Breaks are nothing to mess with do it right.

                                      Happy to help, joe! This will work with your vehicle. However, this product is universal and not a direct fit. Some modifications may be required for proper installation. Currently, the exact brake line coil for your vehicle is unavailable online. I would suggest that you visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store to check the availability of this part.

                                      For basic brake line work, one of the tools you will need is a set of wrenches (two). A tube cutter is another handy brake line tool. If you have a small tube cutter, you can buy metal brake lines and cut them down to the size you need. It keeps the end of the cut clean, with minimal fraying. If there is some fraying or jagged material on the edge of the new cut, a small metal file can easily smooth it out. If you are doing more complicated work on your brake lines, like flaring then you will need flaring tool. Brake line flaring is a process that adds a flare to the end of the brake line to ensure a leak-proof connection. Flaring makes the tubing wider at the end. Because the tubing is wider at this point, the connection can slip in deeper and more easily.
