BRAKE FLUID DOT 5.1

BRAKE FLUID DOT 5.1 is a brake fluid for hydraulic brake and clutch systems with a boiling point of at least 260 °C and an extremely high wet boiling point of at least 180 °C. Because of the low viscosity at low temperatures, particularly suitable for additional systems, such as ABS and ASR.
