All Clariant brake fluids meet and exceed all relevant worldwide norms such as SAE J 1703, SAE J 1704, FMVSS 116 and DIN ISO 4925. OEM requirements set the bar even higher and go beyond these industry standards. Clariant is proud to be approved by various international OEMs. Clariant’s brake fluids are ultimate in quality and reliability. Clariant produces and markets the complete range of brake fluids: DOT 3, DOT 4, and DOT 5.1.
Brake fluids play an especially important role for the safety of a car. Their functionality is to transmit force from the master cylinder hydraulically to the individual wheel cylinders, which force out the brake pads to the brake discs in order to stop the car. During this brake process a bigger part of kinetic energy is transferred into heat, forming temperatures between 400 °C and 600 °C at the brake discs.
In view of mega trends such as increased driving assistance and automated driving, the automotive brake and its fluid will play a key role in driving stability. With the development of increasingly sophisticated brake and assistance systems for passenger cars – such as anti-lock braking systems (ABS) and electronic stability programs (ESP), a broader demand for high-performance brake fluids arose.
