FedHill USA – The Leader of Copper-Nickel Brake, Fuel & Hydraulic Lines
When that Routine Brake Job turns Into a Nightmare of Rusted Brake Lines, Impossible to Find Brake Line Fittings and Unreliable Flaring Tools, You’ve Come to the Right Place
Cunifer™ copper-nickel brake line is completely rustproof, and once it’s installed, your lines will never have to be replaced again. Unlike steel lines, it bends and flares with ease, making the job go fast and smooth.
High performance manufacturers including Aston Martin, Porsche, Volvo and Audi choose copper-nickel alloy over all other materials, including stainless steel.
Cunifer™ is the highest quality copper-nickel tubing available. For over 20 years, FedHill has been the exclusive importer of the original Cunifer™ tubing made in Britain. It is a seamless alloy that -
- Is DOT approved and exceeds the SAE specification J1640 for copper-nickel tubing
- Is completely corrosion proof
- Is easier to bend, flare and install than steel tubing
- And has a 5 to 1 safety factor!
Fedhill Brake Line Out-Brakes the Competition!
We have been providing the finest quality brake line products available to both manufacturers and individuals since 1995. Since then, the marketplace has been flooded with cheaper imitations. Customers calling with problems using the imitation tubing alerted us to investigate the competition. If you’ve been looking at the lower priced competition, please take the time to consider why our tubing is more expensive and how that benefits you.
We purchased samples of their tubing to find out what the problem was, and discovered the competitions claims are as flimsy as their tubing. The bare minimum SAE specification for wall thickness is .025”, but their tubing measured at .022”. Some mechanics have even reported a wall thickness of only .019”! The fact that it is nowhere near specification is alarming.
There’s between 28% to over 45% MORE metal in our tube than theirs. This is how the best of the U.S. Corporate competition measures up, and there’s also the tubing made in Mexico, China and India that’s flooding the marketplace.
Our tubing is not made to the bare minimum specification. Cunifer™ is manufactured to a tighter tolerance and exceeds the minimum SAE specifications, resulting in safe, reliable and truly high quality tubing.
