Andrew Markel shows why regularly testing brake fluid is due to the construction of Bundy tubing.

Test strips are available that employ copper-testing technology, and they are used as an indicator of corrosion occurring in the brake system. Most brake tubing is manufactured using the Bundy process. This process uses copper-coated low-carbon steel to form double-wall tubing with protective coatings that prevent corrosion to the outer surface of the tube.
