Most cars use hydraulic braking system. Trucks also use pneumatic brake system. These systems serve to provide optimum distribution of braking forces between wheels. In both cases for transportation of hydraulic fluid or air brake hoses are required. Brake hose must be firm and sturdy, as any defect can lead to serious consequences. As far as even the use of quality material cannot guarantee the absence of defects, in Great Britain cars are required to have two independent braking systems (dual-braking system).
For a long time rubber was the standard material for the manufacture of brake hoses. Even today rubber brake hoses are very widespread. But this material has a disadvantage: it blows. Therefore, more and more often Polytetrafluorethylen brake hoses are used. They have surface stainless steel braid. Due to stainless steel and Polytetrafluorethylen usage brake hoses are sturdier.
If the brake hose has a defect, the brakes do not operate. The hose can fail because of wear, or it can be gnawed through by an animal. Therefore, brake hoses should be checked regularly. A sudden decrease of brake fluid also may indicate a defect in the brake hose. When replacing the brake hose, it is necessary to pump out air from the brake system. It is recommended to replace the brake hose in the auto repair shop. The cost of replacement is not high, so it is not worth to replace the part by yourself.
