DOT-Compliant Plumbing Solutions

Consumers are often challenged when repairing rusted steel brake lines while they are modifying,
restoring, or building custom vehicles. It is hard to decide what the best choice is for brake plumbing
when there are problems with the most readily available options: plated mild steel and traditional
stainless steel.

Plated mild steel:
• Fairly inexpensive but the plating tends to deteriorate and rust.

Traditional stainless steel:
• Expensive, very hard to bend and flare, and unforgiving.

BrakeQuip has a better way. Our fully DOT-compliant EziBend 2, a copper-nickel alloy, is a cost
comparative solution to plated mild steel. This special cunifer blend contains less than 1.5% iron by
weight for superior corrosion resistance. Our EziBend 2 has been confirmed, through independent lab
testing, to meet or exceed industry standards – UNS C70600 and ASTM B111. EziBend 2 has higher
nickel content than the three leading competitors.

PARETO POINT INDUSTRIES TO DEMONSTRATE THE LATEST ADVANCED OIL FILTRATION PRODUCTS AT THE 2017 SEMA SHOW

San Pedro, Calif., Sept 29, 2017. Pareto Point Industries (PPI) new and updated advanced oil filtration products will be on display at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV Oct. 31 to Nov. 3, 2017. We will be continuously demonstrating how these products improve performance while reducing costs in our booth (34154 – Upper South Hall).
Keeping your oil healthy is the key to engine longevity. By removing harmful particles down to two microns, compared to the 25-40 microns that a full flow filter traps, fine oil filtration can at least double your engine life. By the way, a grain of table salt measures about 100 microns. According to SAE studies the most serious engine damage is from debris smaller than 10 microns.
PPI’s easy to install patented bolt-on products result in better mileage, fewer premature component failures, and longer service intervals. With a typical payback of less than one year, PPI products rapidly pay for themselves many times over.
