The company says StopTech stainless steel lines provide precision brake modulation, especially during threshold braking. The improvement in pedal feel is more dramatic on older vehicles where the factory rubber line may have softened and swelled due to age.

StopTech brake lines consist of a PTFE inner line that carries the brake fluid, which is then covered with a layer of woven stainless steel braid. The PTFE tube is very resistant to expansion under pressure and will not degrade from exposure to brake fluid, according to the company.

The braided stainless steel provides support for the PTFE and the weave is extremely durable against incidental impact and abrasion. The stainless braided hose is also coated with a clear abrasion resistant PVC cover.

StopTech is Centric Parts’ high performance and racing brand. Originally focusing on replacement parts for everyday use, Centric Parts has expanded into OE, armored, racing and performance markets through its StopTech brand. For more information, visit www.stoptech.com.
