Brake Power is a heavy duty, glycol based, brake and clutch fluid exceeding the South African government mandatory requirements and also the United States Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard requirement for DOT 4 brake fluid.

Applications

  • It is suitable for use in all disc and drum brake systems, which require SAE J1703 or DOT 4 type brake fluids.
  • Suitable for all heavy-duty disc and drum brake systems.
  • It is also suitable for use in hydraulic clutch release systems.

Performance Features

  • Its high resistance to water absorption minimises the lowering of the boiling point, thus providing an extra safety margin.
  • Low volatility minimises vapour formation over a wide temperature range, ensuring good braking performance and providing an additional margin of safety against vapour lock.
  • Compatible with all metallic, plastic and elastomer components, providing corrosion protection and lubrication throughout the brake/clutch systems.

Performance Specifications

Exceed the following requirements:

  • SA Government Mandatory Requirements.
  • SAE J1703
  • ISO 4925
  • US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No.116 for DOT 4 brake fluids.
