As compressibility increases, more brake pedal travel is necessary for the same amount of brake caliper piston force.
When you've just replaced your brake fluid and the system has been properly bled, you are working at the Dry boiling temperature. Several different types of brake fluid exist, but we can group them all in two categories: glycol-based and silicone-based.
If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. It is a non-compressible substance that is stored in the brake lines, putting pressure on each of the rotors located in every corner of the vehicle.
Corrosion[ edit ] Brake fluids must not corrode the metals used inside components such as calipers, wheel cylinders, master cylinders and ABS control valves.
A system filled from dry with silicone fluid does not require the fluid to be changed at intervals, only when the system has been disturbed for a component repair or renewal. This is the temperature under which the fluid evaporates and also how prone to absorbing water it is.
