Drive for safety and sustainability


Safebrake Life


Safebrake® Life is based on glycol ethers, anti-corrosion additives, and anti-oxidants. It is classified as non-hazardous, while maintaining a high performance. It is our contribution for safe handling and filling of brake fluids in professional use and for end-consumers. The product complies with all specification requirements of the current version of the FMVSS No. 116 (DOT 4), ISO 4925 (class4) and SAE J 1703.

Safebrake® Life is a unique borate ester-free fluid.
In comparison to conventional DOT 4 fluids, it is the first CMR-label-free* brake fluid and achieves a state of the art performance with a high boiling point and high fluidity. Every little detail is important when it comes to safety, sustainability and well-being.
