One of the biggest differences between OEM and APP brake line is material used in construction. Most OEM brake hoses are made from rubber with no shielding. Rubber expands easily when heated and it cannot fully transfer pressure from a master cylinder to a caliper. APP has several types of brake line such as stainless mesh and steel. Stainless mesh brake line don’t expand easily when heated giving it better pedal travel is shorter than of OEM brake lines, allowing drivers more reliable and rigid braking performance. It is the most suitable for racings which requires severe braking controls during cornering, also higher temperature tolerance.
