Responsible for transmitting the hydraulic pressure to the brake calipers or wheel cylinders, the brake hose effectively turns pedal action into stopping power. Fitting anything less than an OE quality part, could result in reduced stopping power, or worse still, complete brake failure. That’s why we build 90 years of hydraulic braking expertise into every hose we make. Featuring a multi-layer construction and robust connections, Delphi brake hoses deliver outstanding strength, flexibility and durability, just like the OE.
Built to last
Every Delphi brake hose features an EPDM rubber inner lining and outer cover, an SBR interleaf and two additional braided layers, in addition to zinc coated, anti-corrosive end fittings. This special five-layer design provides optimized strength, flexibility and resistance to very high pressure loads, wear, heat and corrosive materials, for a long-lasting, quality brake hose.
Tested to the limit
Even the smallest of imperfections can weaken the brake hose and its ability to withstand pressure, making it more susceptible to leaks. To ensure our brakes hoses are up to the job, and perform just like the OE, we undertake rigorous testing including 100 percent leak, as well as pressure to 3000psi minimum, burst, fluid displacement, tensile strength and more.
Low volume expansion
When it comes to volume expansion, less is most definitely more. Inferior quality brake hoses often have a much higher volume capacity. Yet, thanks to their twin braided construction, our brake hoses are designed to expand less, even at high braking pressures, for a more consistent pedal feel and greater responsiveness.
Easy to install
Because failures often occur at the end attached to the caliper banjo bolt or hard line, we supply all-new banjo clamps and brackets, as per the OE, with every Delphi brake hose. As well as ensuring a robust connection and longer service life, our hoses can be installed straight from the box, saving valuable labour time and cost too.
