Brake fluid is one of the most important parts of the braking system, yet it is often overlooked. Also known as hydraulic fluid, it transfers the force created when you press the brake pedal, through the system, and onto the wheel hub. Ultimately stopping the vehicle. Without it, you simply wouldn’t be able to do so. Since there’s never a good time for this to happen, choosing a high-performance fluid, formulated for the application, such as Delphi Technologies, is a must.
Right fluid for every vehicle
Our range of glycol-ether based DOT 3, DOT 4 and DOT 5.1 and mineral oil based LHM+ has been especially formulated to provide the optimum combination of dry and wet boiling points, maximum and minimum viscosities, chemical stability at high temperature and Ph balance for each vehicle application - so you can be sure the brake system will function at its very best.
High boiling point
If brake fluid boils and becomes a gas, through prolonged or heavy braking, it will lose its ability to transmit force, potentially disabling the brakes. To make matters worse, as the water content in the fluid increases, the temperature it boils at decreases. Choosing a fluid with a high boiling point is therefore critical. Our DOT 5.1 has been specially formulated to deliver a high boiling point for guaranteed performance time and time again.
Since hydraulic units in modern braking systems such as ABS and ESP are manufactured to fine tolerances and require very rapid activation, the viscosity of the fluid is equally important. To maximise the performance of these systems in all conditions, Delphi’s ESP/ASR DOT 4 has been engineered to provide a consistently low viscosity over a wide range of temperatures.
Delphi’s brake fluid helps to lubricate the system’s movable parts and protect against corrosion and wear. It’s also compatible with all rubber seals and hoses, for optimal braking performance and a longer service life.
Our 20L “bag in a box” option avoids moisture contamination, thanks to its special, multi-layer design and provides a more environmental friendly cost effective solution. We also supply in 250ml, 500ml, 1L, 5L and 20L bottles, foil sealed for added moisture protection and longer shelf-life.
