-4 AN PTFE Lined Braided Stainless Steel Hose
Braided Stainless Steel PTFE hoses are great for replacing many factory rubber hoses such as rubber fuel lines, brake lines, and clutch lines. PTFE does not deteriorate or bulge with age like rubber does, and has far superior chemical resistance. The stainless steel outside keeps the inner diameter uniform, allowing faster and more efficient fluid transfer. This hose also handles nitrous oxide with ease.

PTFE Lined Braided Stainless Steel Hose
PTFE-lined braided stainless pre-made hoses are manufactured to the highest quality standards for years of trouble-free service. A tough, extruded PTFE inner layer with a smooth bore is fed into a machine that weaves stainless steel wire into the familiar braided pattern. Since stainless steel braided hoses can be abrasive to almost anything they come into contact with, PTFE-lined stainless hoses feature a black cover to prevent scratches, scrapes, and scuffs.
The properties of PTFE-lined hose make it natural for highly corrosive applications like automotive brake fluid, hot oil, and power steering fluid; it also handles nitrous oxide with ease. Even under high pressure, it will cycle repeatedly without failure. Each hose is 100 percent inspected, and any flawed sections are discarded.
What is PTFE?
Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. Being hydrophobic, non-wetting, high density and resistant to high temperatures, PTFE is an incredibly versatile material with various applications.
- Excellent Electrical Insulator: It is used frequently for wiring and cable, particularly in computer applications, since it is an excellent electric insulator with a high melting point.
- Low Friction: Its low friction properties make it popular for mechanical engineering applications such as slide bearings, slide plates, and gears where sliding action occurs.
- Wear Resistant: PTFE is commonly used in industrial pipes and hose assemblies for handling chemicals and acids due to its non-reactivity and high-temperature tolerance.
- High Temperature Tolerant: PTFE is often used in industrial pipes and hose assemblies due to its non-reactivity and high-temperature tolerance to chemicals and acids.
- Chemically Resistant: PTFE is highly resistant to both high temperatures and chemicals, making it an ideal material for sealing components in chemically aggressive applications.
