STOPRED

According to Dot-4 specification
 

Description

STOPRED is a high performance brake fluid for clutch and brake systems in passenger cars and trucks. It fulfils the new FMVSS 116 DOT 4 specifications as well as SAE J 1703 / Oct. 2000 specifications. STOPRED was developed for heavy duty applications and may be used in all passenger cars, commercial vehicles and motor cycles manufactured in the USA, Europe or Japan where an FMVSS DOT 4 fluid is specified. It offers absolute reliability at all temperature between -40oC and 270oC and guards against clutch and brake problems. It is safely miscible with all brand name fluids of the same specification but can NOT be used in certain Citroen or other vehicles requiring a special mineral oil based fluid. STOPRED is formulated specially to provide low moisture absorption thereby maintaining the fluid’s high boiling point and is specially inhibited to ensure long term protection against rust and corrosion together with additives to provide the correct degree of seal swelling.

Application

Modern vehicles frequently travel at high speed and under hot weather conditions with frequent application of the brakes. Such conditions can generate very high temperatures in the brake disk or drum area. At the same time, modern body designs restrict the flow of cooling air and heat is conducted to the braking system cylinders. All brake fluids absorb water from the atmosphere and this dilution reduces the effectiveness of the fluids which leads to “vapour lock” with spongy and excessive pedal travel during services. Brake and clutch systems should be drained, flushed and refilled with fresh fluid at intervals recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. STOPRED can damage vehicle paintwork and any spillage should be removed immediately by flushing with plenty of water. Do not wipe off. STOPRED, like all other brake fluids, must be stored well sealed in a dry place to minimise the possibility of contamination by dust, water or mineral oil products. Warning Brake failure may be caused by contamination of brake fluid with water, gasoline, diesel fuel or engine oil. Always use a separate clean container for dispensing.
