ETG – BRAKE FLUID DOT 5.1 is a fully synthetic, low viscosity brake fluid with improved dry and wet boiling behaviour based on glycols with high performance oxidation and corrosion inhibitors.
It is used in modern, highly sophisticated hydraulic brake and clutch systems in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications. It is miscible and compatible with commercially available brake fluids according to DOT 3, DOT 4 or DOT 5.1.

  • multi-functional use in passenger cars, commercial vehicles, buses, as well as agricultural and construction machinery if a brake fluid according to one of the left mentioned performance levels is required
  • the low viscosity and very good viscosity-temperature behaviour ensure rapid controlled braking operation of ABS and ESP systems
  • very high dry and wet boiling points provide additional protection against vapour lock when severe stress is imposed on the brake system.
  • protection of brake and clutch hydraulics against deposits and corrosion
  • miscible and compatible with other synthetic brake fluids
  • to exploit the product’s full benefits, a complete brake fluid change is recommended
  • observe manufacturer’s instructions!
