About this deal

This means that the likes of Shimano and Magura have the added freedom when it comes to its manufacture.

Where an item is marked as "Available" it means that it is available from one of the warehouses, not necessarily in the UK. All of the information entered on this site is encrypted before it is transmitted between your computer and ours. Final bleeding into a catch jar using the 2-person method will work when the team work well together.The main change will come in a decrease or increase in the boiling point of the brake fluid as a whole. One Shimano representative revealed that no third party Mineral Oil has ever been sanctioned for use in Shimano brakes - this we expected to hear as Shimano will of course be recommending you use their proprietary brake fluid. Care should be taken to use the correct type of brake fluid as recommended by the manufacturer of the system. Silicone Brake Fluid is non-toxic and non-corrosive and will not damage automotive painted surfaces, hoses, seals or other materials. Brake Fluid is 100% synthetic on polyglycol basis for all types of hydraulic actuated brake and clutch systems in accordance with DOT 5.

Silicone DOT 5, as we mentioned earlier, is not compatible with any of the other DOT fluids, nor is it able to be mixed with Mineral Oil brake fluid. EBC offers five brake fluid options for the market separated into two families, both of which are very different in their chemistry – glycol fluids and silicone fluids.Classic Spares is part of Murray Scott-Nelson, Classic Sports Car Specialists, based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. As Tiger said, DOT-4 fluid does need frequent changes to make sure moisture buildup in the fluid does not cause problems. I used DOT 5 in several high mileage cars, after a full brake system overhaul, replacing all seals, hoses (Goodridge, cheaper than OEM in some cases) and pipes (Kunifer of course, NEVER copper), and they went on to achieve very high mileages, up to 200k, without further attention to the brakes, except routine pad, and occasionally disc, changes.
