Brake Fluid

Through normal brake functioning, brakes create heat, part of this heat is absorbed by the brake fluid, and if the brake fluid begins to boil, so-called vapour locks will be created. This results in brake failure which could seriously compromise you and your vehicle's safety.

To prevent vapour locks, the brake fluid must have a high boiling point to keep car parts including brakes working well. However, glycol based brake fluids absorb moisture from the air (hygroscopic), which, over time, lowers the boiling point and reduces performance and effectiveness. After 2-3 years, depending on the specification and quality of the brake fluid, the boiling point can drop down to under 170 °C.
