Hydraulic Brake Hose Assemblies for Use with Nonpetroleum-Base Hydraulic Fluids in Non-Jounce Applications
This SAE Standard specifies the performance tests and requirements for hydraulic brake hose assemblies used in the underhood hydraulic braking system of a road vehicle. This standard does not apply to brake hose used in jounce applications (wheel mounted brake hose assemblies).
Rationale: This standard has been written to address the requirements specific to brake hose assemblies in non-jounce (underhood) applications. The current SAE J1401 Hydraulic Brake Hose Assembly Standard does not encompass the hose dimensions or performance parameters needed for non-jounce brake hose.
