With age, Rubber Brake Hoses’ will crack, fracture, swell, blister and perish. The average estimated life of a typical rubber brake hose is 6 years. This is caused by many reasons including these facts:

 

Rubber Brake Hoses deteriorate from the inside wall as well as the outside.

  • Moisture is absorbed into brake fluid systems through Rubber Brake Hoses.
  • Contaminants in brake fluid act abrasively on the inner wall of Rubber Brake Hoses.
  • The Rubber Brake Hose reinforcing fabric deteriorates through expansion and moisture.
  • High operating temperatures in brake systems contribute to the deterioration of Rubber Brake Hoses.
  • Rubber Brake Hoses swell with age and restrict flow.

Rubber Hoses

Old-Fashioned ‘rubber’ brake hoses traditionally fitted to cars and motorbikes have a relatively short reliable life.

The estimated life of a typical ‘rubber’ brake hose is 6 years, then, they can become safety hazards. Imagine brake hoses as arteries in the human body. A person could live a normal life with hard and restricted arteries, but it’s when they exert their heart to some stress that symptoms arise…the same applies to brake hoses.

Brake hoses could appear OK but it’s when they are subjected to extreme pressures in an ‘emergency stop’ is when they need to be in good condition to handle this stress.

Most braking systems with boosted assisted brakes obtain pressures of approximately 1500psi.
