Continental has launched its ATE Super DOT 5.1. brake fluid to the aftermarket.
The new brake fluid from ATE, a subsidiary of Continental, combines a high wet boiling point of 180°C with excellent flowability (viscosity) even in very cold operating conditions.
With a maximum of 700 mm²/sec. at -40°C, the viscosity values of ATE Super DOT 5.1 even exceed those of ISO Class 6 – well above the specifications for DOT 5.1 class brake fluids.
It is available in the familiar metal cans in 1, 5 and 20 litre sizes.
“More and more leading car manufacturers are either using DOT 5.1 class brake fluids or are about to use them,” says Johannes Both, the program manager responsible for hydraulic brake products at Continental. “We have responded to this market change at an early stage in our product range for the automotive aftermarket, ensuring that independent workshops will always have manufacturer-recommended brake fluids available.”
