ATE BFSL61 BF SL.6 1 Liter Brake Fluid Dot 4 Class 6

The brake fluid is the most important part of the brake system because it transmits the pressure we apply with our feet to the brakes. Since the introduction of electronic systems like ABS and ESP, the brake fluid has acquired a far greater importance than it had before. The hydraulic units of these systems have a large number of small bores and ducts, some of them smaller in diameter than a human hair. Consequently, the wrong choice of brake fluid can have disastrous results for the operation of state-of-the-art brake systems.

Since the introduction of ESP, brake fluid must decelerate individual wheels in fractions of a second in order to stabilize the vehicle in critical situations (e.g. a skid). The development of particularly thinbodied brake fluids such as Original ATE SL.6 have been essential in ensuring the rapid response times required for ESP can be attained. The requirement for such fluids has already been incorporated into the design of the ESP system. With conventional brake fluids the system's reaction times (in critical situations) may be several times longer than with Original ATE SL.6. In practice this may mean that the system cannot stabilize the vehicle.

Comparison of ESP response time of ATE SL.6 with typical DOT 4 and DOT 5.1 brake fluids.

The new ATE brake fluid meets and exceeds the requirements: FMVSS§571.116, DOT 4/DOT 3, SAE J1703 as well as ISO 4925, Class 6.

Advantages of Original ATE SL.6

   * Low viscosity (thin-bodied)
   * Permits fastest response by ESP
   * Optimum brake fluid for electronic brake systems like ESP, ABS, TCS, etc.
   * Improved handling safety owing to speedy response of ESP
   * Most vehicle manufacturers already use the low-viscosity DOT 4, Class 6 (ISO 4925) brake fluids in production cars (OEM and OES)

The optimal brake fluid for electronic brake systems

With Original ATE SL.6 you are optimally prepared for future systems too. Make use of the advantage which shorter response time offers and abstain from using viscous brake fluid, and thus the wrong fluid, for ESP and other electronic brake systems.

Low-Viscosity fluid replaces Super DOT 4, for electric brake system.
