AL-KO offers the highest quality for vehicle trailers

Trailers need to be able to do their job reliably under all operating conditions, whatever the weather.

The bowden cables, that are critical for the brake function, have to withstand a lot of stress. AL-KO is setting a new standard with its new long-life bowden cables. Longest possible service life with improved function. The optimised structure enables them to withstand even the toughest environmental conditions without difficulty. 

Your Advantage

  • The metal-reinforced internal spiral is protected by a polymer sheath made of PA 12 (polyamide 12). This material is exceedingly resistant to salt water as well as other media. This material is used successfully as a protective coating for offshore pipelines of oil platforms as well as for petrol pipelines.
  • The end pieces of the new bowden cables are finished with a zinc/nickel coating, so that rust simply cannot gain a foothold. 
  • The transition from the jacketed steel wire to the cable is provided with a tight fitting elastomer grommet. This effectively prevents the ingress of of water, salt and other aggressive, harmful liquids.
  • The steel cable jacketed in PA 12 itself runs within another cable made from PVC. This means plastic runs on plastic, thereby allowing the sliding properties to be optimised as well. In simple terms: efficiency is boosted by up to 5% across the entire temperature range.
  • Bowden cable spiral in polymer jacket (PVC) plastic sheath on outside, internal
  • Pressed nipple
  • Pressed hose attachment
  • Bowden cable seal with exactly fitting elastomer grommet
  • Nipple, nut and hose attachment with zinc/nickel coating
  • Steel slits jacketed with high-quality polymer – resistant to corrosion with maximum sliding properties.
