Description

Synthetic brake fluid based on glycol ethers, alkyl poly glycols and glycol ether esters. It contains inhibitors to prevent the corrosion of metallic brake components and to reduce oxidation at increased temperatures. The brake fluid has a high wet and dry boiling point, thus ensuring safe braking even after the absorption of some moisture over an extended period of use. Special moisture scavengers help to prevent against the formation of steam bubbles.

Properties

  • Miscible and compatible with high-quality synthetic brake fluids
  • Outstanding protection against the formation of steam bubbles
  • Excellent elastomer compatibility
  • Assures a high degree of lubricating action on all moving components in the hydraulic brake circuit
  • Extremely high wet and dry boiling points
  • Excellent viscosity/temperature properties
  • Excellent low temperature behavior
  • Highest thermal stability

Specifications and approvals:

  • FMVSS 116 DOT 3
  • FMVSS 116 DOT 4
  • ISO 4925 Class 3
  • ISO 4925 Class 4
  • SAE J 1703
  • SAE J 1704

Application

Liqui Moly DOT 4 brake fluid can be used with all conventional brake fluid bleeding devices. Liqui Moly DOT 4 brake fluid is miscible and compatible with all high-quality synthetic brake fluids. The optimal period of use for this brake fluid is, however, only ensured when it is used alone. It is recommended that the brake fluid be changed in accordance with the specifications from the automobile manufacturer.

Brake Fluid

Brake fluid is essentially hydraulic fluid which meets the standards set by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and the Department of Transportation (DOT). There are three main categories of brake fluid: DOT 3, DOT 4, and DOT 5. DOT 3 and 4 are polyglycol based while DOT 5 is synthetic brake fluid. Glycol based fluids are hygroscopic which is a benefit as the fluid absorbs any water which prevents water droplets from forming in the fluid. By absorbing the water, this in turn prevents water from collecting which could either boil, freeze or corrode components. Changing the brake fluid in your vehicle routinely will reduce the chances of boiling brake fluid which could lead to brake fade or loss of brake operation altogether.

Brake Fluid Failure Symptoms
  • High moisture content causing low boiling point
  • Dirty or tarnished color
  • Boiling over of the brake system under extreme braking conditions
