Nylon 11 D.O.T. Tubing
Type A D.O.T. tubing is 5/16” OD or less. It is rugged enough for critical vehicle systems but is flexible enough to fit in tight spaces. Type B is for sizes above 5/16” and requires a braid inside the tubing.
Freelin-Wade currently produces type A nylon 11 D.O.T. tubing which meets SAE J844 specifications. We offer D.O.T. tubing in a wide range of sizes and colors, along with customized tubing that is tailored to your unique needs.

Nylon Air Brake Tubing for Heavy Duty VehiclesFreelin-Wade’s nylon 11 air brake tubing is heat and UV stabilized, making it highly resistant to stress-cracking and, therefore, ideal for outdoor applications with significant sunlight exposure. Our D.O.T. tubing is available in sizes 5/16” OD and smaller, and six standard colors are available (color availability varies by size). We offer air brake tubing in 100’ lengths or on easy-to-dispense reels (up to 2,000’).
Please note that we offer only Type “A” air brake tubing; we do not offer larger, Type “B” reinforced air brake hose.
