Brake and Clutch Fluid DOT 3 is a high quality, non-petroleum automotive brake fluid designed for use in conventional hydraulic brake and clutch systems under normal service conditions.
Good brake response
High boiling point and resistance to vapor formation under normal service conditions ensures that brake pedal travel is taken up in activating the brakes rather than compressing the fluid.
Protects metal surfaces
Buffered formulation provides protection from acidic oxidation products for cast iron and steel components by maintaining the pH of the fluid in the alkaline range. Advanced technology inhibitors protect other metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, zinc and tin from corrosion by forming a protective layer on the surface.
Minimizes leakage and loss of pressure
Correct seal swell and lubricity characteristics minimize leakage through seal shrinkage and component wear caused by excessive seal swelling and/or inadequate lubrication of moving parts.
Good performance during service life
High thermal and oxidation stability resists fluid degradation and formation of harmful deposits, ensuring the retention of key performance features over the full life of the fluid.
All hydraulically operated motor vehicle braking systems (drum and disc types) for which a DOT 3 or SAE J1703 fluid is specified. This may include:
– Vehicles with anti-lock (ABS) braking systems
– Hydraulic clutch systems requiring conventional fluids
– Passenger cars, commercial road transport, and motorcycles
