DOT 5.1 BRAKE FLUID is a premium quality, full synthetic, non-silicone, DOT 5.1 brake fluid designed for use in a wide range of brake and clutch applications.
DOT 5.1 BRAKE FLUID is recommended for re-fill or top-up of brake and clutch systems in passenger cars, 4WD's, motorcycles, light and heavy duty commercial vehicles, mining, construction, agricultural and all other moving vehicle types that require a non petroleum based brake & clutch hydraulic fluid.
DOT 5.1 BRAKE FLUID is suitable for use where the vehicle manufacturer specifies either DOT 3, DOT 4, Super DOT 4 or DOT 5.1 fluids. It is also suitable for use with all types of seals, hoses and other brake and clutch system parts.
DOT 5.1 BRAKE FLUID is suitable for use where lower viscosity fluids (at -40C) are required in colder climatic conditions in the latest ABS braking systems with micro valves, that require a lower viscosity and faster circulating fluid to perform correctly.
DOT 5.1 BRAKE FLUID can be used for first fill or refilling a brake or clutch system. For best results, the system should always be flushed with Penrite Brake Fluid DOT 5.1 prior to first fill or before refilling the system. It should be replaced in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer's specifications.
Caution: Brake Fluids are naturally hygroscopic and will absorb water from the air. This will lower the effectiveness of the product. After opening bottle, ensure cap is resealed tightly to avoid water contamination.
