BRAKE FLUID

Car India - - BOSCH TECHNO BIBLE -

It is the fluid that trans­mits the force hy­drauli­cally to var­i­ous parts of the brak­ing sys­tem once the brake pedal is pressed. It func­tions based on Pas­cal’s law of hy­draulics: ‘a force ap­plied at one point on an en­closed fluid is trans­mit­ted undi­min­ished to all points in the fluid’. Brake fluid is highly non­com­press­ible with an ex­tremely high boil­ing point. The higher the DOT rat­ing (DOT3, 4, 5.1), the higher its boil­ing point and com­pat­i­bil­ity with more de­mand­ing op­er­at­ing en­vi­ron­ments.
