Performance Characteristics of Silicone Based Brake Fluids 740128
Silicone based brake fluids have demonstrated performance characteristics that are improvements over current brake fluids. They do not absorb water through elastomeric brake hoses, and their boiling point and low temperature viscosity do not change in service. The tendency toward brake system corrosion and the vapor pressure of silicone brake fluids are minimal. Silicone brake fluids are compatible with brake system components and will function as an effective brake fluid even when mixed with glycol brake fluids.
