Go to the bottom of the page for more information about the advantages of
Cunifer brake tubing.



These are complete brake line kits including caliper lines where appropriate. The
brake line kits are coiled as pictured. You bend the lines to match your originals.

Cunifer brake line is copper-nickel-iron alloy DOT approved brake line. This type of
brake line is made in England and comes as standard equipment on many exotic
European cars. This brake line never rusts and can be polished to a high luster. The
brake pipe is relatively easy to bend and makes a superior flare seal compared to
steel or stainless steel line. Cunifer line allows a superior flare seal without over
tightening the tube nuts. Each pipe is numbered so you know where it goes. All of
the pipes are preflared with the correct end fittings and original length.

The copper nickel alloy line which are in these brake line kits was developed by Volvo to increase
the safety of their cars. We are the beneficiaries. The line is harder than pure copper due to the alloy
component, but still nice and soft for flares. It makes a superior flare seal because copper alloy line
squishes to make an excellent seal. Sealing can be achieved without over tightening the tube nuts and
stripping out the threads. Copper nickel line does not rust and can be polished quickly with 0000
steel wool. You can form the line with your hands. Beautiful 90 plus degree bends can be made with
out special tube benders. This line is made in England and is DOT approved for the US market.  

Some brake line kits have brass tube nuts. Although this seems like a good idea at first, in practice
the brass nuts cause problems. The mechanic often tries to tighten the tube nut if the line is weeping.
Brass tube nuts have a tendency to do two things: the hex flats round off the nut and the nut can
mushroom at the end in contact with the flare. The mushrooming causes great difficult in removing
the line from the brake part. In more serious cases the mushroom develops a split and causes nut
failure.  Plated steel tube nuts are used in
our brake line kits to avoid the problems with brass nuts.

Please also note that this is real Cunifer line 90-10 ( 1% iron) copper nickel alloy line which is
made in England and has a wall thickness of .028 inches.
There are other manufactures of less
expensive copper nickel line which have popped up recently with a significantly thinner wall
thickness and some with significantly different alloy content. Somehow the thinner line claims to
have the same burst strength and actually be more resistant to puncture than real Cunifer while at the
same time having the same alloy content. Think about that for a moment.  In addition to the thin
wall line I have also inspected some other copper alloy line recently made in India or China that can
be picked up with a magnet!
