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.
