In tuning forums, the question of changing the brake fluid often arises. Anyone with his car better brakes want to equip and want to use a heavy-duty brake fluid, which will inevitably face the question of which brake fluids can be used. Especially if one Steel braided line is used, the brake fluid should also not correspond to the series. Tuners rely on particularly resilient brake fluids, which are known as high-performance brake fluids. Products are commercially available that are considered to be particularly durable and have a high wet boiling point. (this must be taken into account when changing the brake fluid)
Tuning brake fluid for the car
Brake fluids with extreme thermal resistance are available for tuning vehicles in retail in many variants. The interested tuner can acquire specially developed high-performance brake fluids, which have the high DOT 4 level, for example. But before using the brake fluid, the old brake fluid should of course be drained. Not every brake fluid can be mixed with another and in general you should also avoid it. If in doubt, the product description of the high-performance brake fluid provides information about the application and the miscibility.
High performance brake fluid - product example
Brake fluids for tuning vehicles are commercially available, in the product description of which a miscibility with DOT 3, DOT 5.1 or DOT 4 products is specified. Whether brake fluids should be mixed should be discussed in a specialist workshop or with the brake fluid manufacturer. Brake fluids should not be refilled, but replaced as completely as possible. The brake fluid should be replaced by a specialist workshop. The product descriptions also state which brake fluids should not be mixed (for example brake fluids based on silicone DOT 5 and LHM special fluids). It is important to read the product description carefully before using and buying a high-performance brake fluid and to make sure that the fluid is suitable for the vehicle and its brake system. Especially when an individual brake system with new calipers, sports brake pads, slices, Lines or a modified Brake booster is installed. Here all components have to harmonize perfectly with each other.
Properties of a brake fluid tuning?
Tuning brake fluids can withstand extremely high temperatures and remain stable. The reason for the stability is the high dry side point of the high-performance brake fluids. They also have high wet boiling points, which is why these brake fluids are particularly durable. The high-performance versions also guarantee a high safety standard in brake systems. The brake systems can work efficiently with the right brake fluid, even under difficult conditions. When purchasing high-performance brake fluids, you should rely on corrosion-resistant articles that do not attack seals in the brake system. Anyone who uses high-performance brake fluids should definitely adhere to the replacement intervals and specifications recommended by the vehicle and brake fluid manufacturer. For example, it can be read in some product descriptions that the replacement interval can range from 12 months to 24 months, depending on the manufacturer's recommendation.
Storage of brake fluids
Brake fluids should be kept in the original container if possible and sealed carefully. The liquids must not draw water. Furthermore, brake fluids should not simply be refilled, but replaced. It is also advisable to clean the brake system and all lines beforehand so that the remains of the old brake fluid do not mix with the new one. At the end... Tuning brake fluids are known as high-performance brake fluids that can withstand extreme temperatures and remain particularly stable under tough conditions. The extremely resilient liquids are commercially available from various manufacturers and should only be purchased after consulting a specialist workshop. When buying, you have to pay attention to quality and if possible use a well-known provider.
