Brembo Brake Fluid – The Core Of The Brake System, Limit The Vapour Lock
Strong points: reduced viscosity and high boiling point.
Brake discs, calipers, pads and brake master cylinders are the four cardinal points of each brake system; however, they are likely to be useless without the core of the entire system, the brake fluid. This component is so neglected as to be generally controlled in a summary way, with topping instead of a more appropriate replacement, at the change frequency recommended by the manufacturer.
Vapour Lock formation
This sort of habit leaves room for the Vapour Lock, the formation of vapour bubbles due to boiling of the brake fluid that replace the normal fluid and are compressed, thereby sending the brake pedal to its fill stoke (spongy pedal). The origin is incident in the porosity of the tubes that make up the braking circuit, which in time draw moisture into the fluid, drastically reducing the boiling point. The result is a reduced braking efficiency.
Brembo Premium Brake Fluid
Brembo Premium brake fluids have a higher boiling point that exceeds the standard, thus offering superior resistance to the Vapour Lock and ensuring braking efficiency even at low temperatures. With high anti-corrosion properties and resistance to oxidation, Brembo brake fluid also allows for long-term unaltered chemical/physical characteristics of the fluid in operating circuit; therefore, preserving its integrity.
