Nothing in your car is more important than working brakes that can save lives in an emergency. For this reason it is worthwhile to set up a special attention to the break fluid. The main component of a brake fluid is a polyglycol connection. In its life cycle, the brake fluid absorbs water, which is located in the brake system. It´s an important feature because moisture in the system can lead to its total failure in the car. However, records the brake fluid more and more fluid it loses it´s effect. Here, the brake fluid boiling point is very important. The wet boiling point describes the boiling point at a water content of the brake fluid from 3.5 percent. From there, the fluid has to be completely replaced in your car. The dry boiling point, however, describes the temperature at which an unloaded brake fluid is no longer functional.

Brake fluid: DOT3, DOT4, DOT5 and DOT5.1

Through the United Department of Transportation, short DOT, minimum requirements are described in the brake fluid and divided into classes DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 5 and DOT 5.1. These classes provide, among other intervals in which the boiling point of brake fluid must be located. To meet today's safety standards, see a lot of maintenance plans provide a complete brake fluid replacement after two years. When filling in your car mixing a fluid is partly possible. DOT 3 and DOT 4 can be generally mixed, however, DOT 4 is more aggressive and can potentially cause damage to a brake system, and thus directly on the brakes when it was designed for DOT 3 class. Fluids with specification DOT 5.1 which are prepared based on glycol, can be mixed with both the DOT 3 and DOT 4 with. However, the boiling point of the mixture changes. The DOT 5 silicone base may be mixed under any circumstances. In general, we recommend using only a brake fluid for the brakes, which is stated on the surge tank top.
