TRW designs braking fluid to work in all temperatures

TRWEU0414_(TRW_Ultra_ESP_brake_fluid)_imageTRW has developed the world’s first DOT 5.1 brake fluid designed to work and maintain its performance at all temperatures.

The formulation has been scientifically engineered to meet the latest demands in ESP technology.

It has developed its brake fluid offering to ensure it reduces the latent risk of longer stopping distances and loss of control of the vehicle, by developing a higher boiling point than most other standard liquids.

It also will be a low viscosity formulation meaning that the DOT 5.1 ESP has the best flow properties between the ABS hydraulics small bores, valves and pumps, especially during cold conditions.

Barbara Koerfer, Drum Brake and Actuation Systems Product Manager, said: “With this brake fluid we are thinking across systems, across extremes of temperatures and across the global vehicle car parc.

“Its unique viscosity properties exceed all others on the market which can only be categorized as DOT 5.1, making this product suitable from Antartica to Zimbabwe.”
