CLINTON, Mo. – Champion Brands, LLC, a globally recognized industry  leader in specialty lubricants for more than 64 years, announced a more expansive offering of five types and 11 SKUs of brake fluids.

“Brake fluid is an important component in any hydraulic braking system,” stated Karl Dedolph, Director at Champion Brands, LLC.  “The fluid is subjected to hundreds of pounds of pressure but also needs to lubricate rubber components in the master cylinder, wheel cylinders, calipers and hoses.

“In addition, brake fluid has corrosion inhibitors that keep the bores of hydraulic cylinders from rusting and pitting. Our current offering of Champion Brake Fluid Products is as follows:”

DOT 3 Brake Fluid – #4057AN – 55 Gal.
DOT 3 Brake Fluid – #4057D – 5 Gal.
DOT 3 Brake Fluid – #4057N/4 – 4/ 1 Gal.

“Most of today’s brake fluids are made of polyalkylene glycol which is hydroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture. The absorption of water prevents “pooling” of the absorbed water in the brake system, where corrosive acids can form and make the components deteriorate.  Water in a brake system will also cause fluids to freeze or boil faster,” added Dedolph.

Champion SERIES 600 Brake Fluid is a competition brake fluid used for on and off-road racing where a dry boiling point exceeding minimum requirements is preferred. Champion 600 Series Racing Brake Fluid is glycol based and maintains it viscosity and lubricity under extreme conditions, plus it designed to withstand excessive heat without boiling or affecting brake performance. It has a dry boiling point of 585 degrees F. and a rated viscosity of 1550cSt at -40 F. Meets and exceeds FMVSS116 DOT4 and SAE J1704.
