Hydro has developed a high-strength aluminium alloy that meets requirements for the application. We also designed a process layout that satisfies the demands from the brake system market.
To ensure protection against corrosion and stone impact, the aluminium brake lines are coated with HYCOT® PA12, which is a recognized coating in the automotive industry.
We have also developed end forms and screws to obtain a durable connection between brake line and fittings.
Excellent energy absorption is one of the properties that carmakers, and insurance companies, value in Hydro’s range of aluminium specifically designed for cars and the automotive industry. Aluminium from Hydro can make your vehicles safer.
