Low viscosity DOT4 brake fluid for modern electronic brake systems

Brake fluid is probably the most important part of your vehicles brake system because it transmits the pressure applied by your feet to the brakes. With the introduction and mass use of vehicles with ESP and ABS systems brake fluid has become more important than it was before. Most of these new brake systems have ducts and channels that are smaller than a human hair. The wrong type of brake fluid can cause operation issues with modern brake systems. For that reason, ATE SL.6 was developed as a new replacement for DOT4 fluid.

Vehicles that have ABS ans other ESP systems must be able to decelerate individual wheels when required. The development of a thin bodied brake fluid has become more critical than ever in ensuring quick response times.

Advantages of 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)

Requirements met or exceeded

  • FMVSS§571.116
  • DOT 4/DOT 3
  • SAE J1703
  • ISO 4925
  • Class 6

SL.6 specifications:
Dry boiling point: 265°C (509°F)
Wet boiling point: 175°C (338°F)
Recommended change interval: Up to 2 years

Quality fluid for a great price. Ended up using 2 liters to fully flush and bleed my system on my 2006 S60R after replacing all the lines. Very easy to tell between the old fluid coming out and the new fluid.

Great Fluid

Awesome high quality fluid!! I just wish I'd bought TWO cans though for the bleed job as one can wasn't enough to flush my brake system entirely...

If you are looking for the correct low viscosity brake fluid you're in the right place. Many people don't realize that almost all late models spec this lighter weight fluid. ATE is the OEM supplier for most all European cars. Get it here for far less than the dealer. It's also a great brake fluid for those of us who live in the far North. It will give a better pedal (brake & clutch) feel on those cold winter mornings.

Some of the reviewers above may have been rewarded for their positive & negative reviews. We don't hold anything back.
