Brake Fluids with Low Moisture Avidity 680006

The new brake fluid, called LMA (low moisture avidity) fluid, which complies with the SAE 70R3 specification, has the distinct advantage of absorbing less moisture than conventional glycolether brake fluids. No malfunctioning of components has been experienced in brakes or clutches over a test period of 2-1/2 years. Brake trials also show that the tendency to vapor lock under severe braking has been reduced with LMA fluid. Furthermore, the low temperature viscosity of LMA fluid is hardly affected by increase in water content, whereas with conventional fluids this viscosity can be more than doubled.
