Copper Nickel Brake Lines


Bludot is looking to expand its products this year by providing modernized products for the fast-paced production levels of today. Bludot offers the copper nickel brake lines for 2020.

Copper Nickel Facts from Bludot:

  • Copper nickel has been popular in European cars since the ‘70s
  • Copper nickel brake lines are DOT approved for hydraulic use
  • PSI ratings for copper nickel are only a little lower than stainless steel
  • Copper nickel brake lines offer strong corrosion resistance both inside and outside
  • Road salt and grime is ineffective at rusting the brake line since the brake line is 88.7% copper
  • Normal stainless steel has to be coated in corrosion resistant material that gets scratched and fades over time, which allows for rust
  • Copper nickel will not rust because the copper does not hold and absorb moisture
  • Stainless steel brake lines rust inside since there is no coating to protect the lines from absorbing the moisture
  • Copper nickel’s ability to avoid moisture leads to a longer life span against wear and tear
  • Copper nickel brake lines are more affordable than the stainless steel brake lines
  • Copper nickel has proven to be easier to work with than stainless steel brake lines
  • Copper nickel brake lines are softer than stainless steel which allows for better flexibility
  • End forms and flares are easy to create for repairs with copper nickel
  • The hardness of stainless steel is difficult to work with on the assembly line
  • Copper nickel is able to bend and flare to create a tighter seal
  • We will still continue to provide stainless steel to our customers who require it, but we do recommend copper nickel instead.
  • Bludot offers both copper nickel, and stainless steel brake lines. Learn more at
