Powdercoated hard lines.

I see that JEGS offers a 25' coil of powdercoated brake line.
My question to you is how bendable is this stuff?
Not the line itself so much as the powdercoat, will it be cracking and flaking if I try to bend/flare it?

I don't know about the Jegs stuff, but here at NAPA we have a similar product called "polyarmor" brake line. It has a coating on it that resists all sorts of ails. It actually helps the line resist kinking, so it's MUCH easier to work with. You can make some extremely tight bends with it compared to regular line.

I comes in increments from 10" to 60" in 10" increments, and I've heard from the factory reps that it will soon be available in 25' coils. It isn't much more expensive than regular lines. Anywhere from 2 to 6 dollars depending on the size and diameter. It is available in 3/16, 1/4, and 5/16".

Don't know about the brake lines specifically but my guess is they are very flexible and durable. I powder coat everything on a car that I can and the stuff bonds so well to steel that you can literally do body work w/o flaking it off.
