Clinton, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/22/2013 -- Champion, a globally recognized leader in specialty lubricants now offers a Department of Transportation (DOT) 5 in addition to numerous traditional North American designations of automotive hydraulic brake fluids.
Champion DOT 5 Silicone-Based Brake Fluid is a polysiloxane-based fluid designed for use in non-ABS hydraulic braking applications. Unlike glycol-based fluids, the silicone-based brake fluid does not affect paint finish and does not absorb moisture.
Champion DOT 5 also has a much more consistent viscosity profile and provides excellent lubrication of brake system components – leading to more consistent brake feel and longer component life. Another advantage over other forms of brake fluid is that the Champion DOT 5 Silicone-Based Brake Fluid has a more stable viscosity index over a wider temperature range.
Benefits include: Low vapor pressure eliminates vapor lock, Extremely high dry and wet boiling points, Does not absorb moisture, Does not peel or blister paint or finish, High viscosity stability improves brake feel in all climates, and Conforms to FMVSS 116 (DOT 5) and MIL-PRF-46176B
