  • Safebrake DOT 4

    Safebrake® DOT 4 is based on glycols, glycol ethers, the corresponding borates, anti-corrosion additives, and anti-oxidants. The borate ester functions as a water sponge and increases the wet boiling point.

    more
  • Safebrake 6 M

    Safebrake® 6 M (DOT 4) is based on glycols, glycol ethers, the corresponding borates, anti-corrosion additives, and anti-oxidants. The borate ester functions as a water sponge and increases the wet boiling point. A high wet boiling point is a crucial safety feature.

    more
  • Safebrake 9 M

    Safebrake® 9 M (DOT 4) is based on glycols, glycol ethers, the corresponding borates, anti-corrosion additives, and anti-oxidants. A higher wet boiling point is a critical safety feature.

    more
  • Safebrake 10 M

    Safebrake® 10 M (DOT 4) is based on glycols, glycol ethers, the corresponding borates, anti-corrosion additives, and anti-oxidants. A higher wet boiling point is a critical safety feature.

    more
  • Safebrake 16 M

    Safebrake® 16 M (DOT 4) was specially developed for vehicles with electronic ESP/DSC - driving stability systems. The fluid is characterized by an extreme low-temperature viscosity, whereby a faster responding time of approx. 30% of the individual brake discs at low temperatures is guaranteed.As one of a few brake fluids world-wide, Safebrake 16 M exceeds the strong requirements of the standard ISO 4925, Class 6.

    more
  • Safebrake 20 M (DOT 5.1) class7

    Safebrake® 20 M (DOT 5.1) class7 - a low viscosity DOT 5.1 brake fluid. Fullfills the new ISO 4925:2020 class 7 requirements. Safebrake® 20 M (DOT 5.1) class7 lv is based on glycols, glycol ethers, the corresponding borates, anti corrosion additives and anti-oxidants.
