Castrol Brake Fluid DOT3 is a high boiling synthetic brake fluid which exceeds the requirements of the SAE J1703, FMVSS 116 DOT 3, ISO, 4925 and JIS K2233 specifications. These are regarded by Castrol as minimum safety standards and as such have been used as the basis for the development of this product which therefore offers superior performance combined with a greater safety margin.
Castrol Brake Fluid DOT3 Brake Fluid is formulated from mixed polyalkylene glycol ethers together with lubricity additives and corrosion inhibitors. The high level of protection against wear and corrosion offered by this product will prolong the service life of the system components making it especially suitable for use in hydraulic clutch systems.
It is fully compatible with other fluids meeting FMVSS 116 DOT 3, DOT 4 and DOT 5.1.
In order to maintain the superior performance characteristics of Castrol Brake Fluid DOT 3, avoid mixing with non Castrol brake fluid
-Castrol Brake Fluid DOT 3 is designed for use in the hydraulic brake and clutch systems of passenger cars and commercial vehicles with the exception of those systems for which a mineral oil based fluid is recommended (for example, some Citröen systems, for which Castrol
