Road Vehicle-Hydraulic Brake Hose Assemblies for Use With Nonpetroleum-Base Hydraulic Fluids
This SAE Standard specifies the performance tests and requirements for hydraulic brake hose assemblies used in the hydraulic braking system of a road vehicle. It also specifies the methods used for identification of the hose manufacturer.
This document applies to brake hose assemblies made of a hose fabricated from yarn and natural or synthetic elastomers and assembled with metal end fittings for use with nonpetroleum-base brake fluids as specified in SAE J1703 and SAE J1705.
The nominal internal diameter of the brake hose shall be one of the following values:
a. 3.2 mm (1/8 in) or,
b. 4.8 mm (3/16 in).
