AMSOIL Series 500 DOT 3 High-Performance Synthetic Brake Fluid and
AMSOIL Series 600 DOT 4 Synthetic Racing Brake Fluid feature pure base stocks and robust
additives that resist boil-off and the effects of water contamination more effectively than conventional brake
fluids. AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids deliver superior high-temperature performance in auto/light-truck,
high-performance, racing and powersports applications.
Water contaminates the brake system by seeping through microscopic pores in
flexible brake lines and seals and through the reservoir fill cap when opened. Once inside, it quickly works to
corrode brake parts, lines and seals, leading to eventual system failure. AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids keep water
in suspension, slowing its corroding effects. They lubricate and protect intricate braking components despite the
inevitable water absorption associated with braking systems, delivering long-lasting performance.
The extreme pressure and high heat common to braking can push conventional brake fluid beyond its boiling point,
causing it to vaporize, or "boil-off." Even more problematic, water contamination can drop the boiling point of
conventional fluid below safe standards, accelerating the rate at which it boils off. This leads to a spongy or
unresponsive feeling in the brake pedal. In contrast, the unique chemistry behind AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids
increase their boiling point temperatures well beyond Department of Transportation (DOT) standards even when
contaminated with 3 percent water (see chart). They maintain a stable viscosity over a wide temperature range and
flow easily at the high pressures generated in today's automotive brake systems to deliver consistent, safe
braking. AMSOIL Series 600 DOT 4 Synthetic Racing Brake Fluid features a wet equilibrium reflux boiling point (Wet
ERBP) nearly 100°F higher than the DOT minimum, making it ideal for high-performance cars, motorcycles and vehicles
used for towing.
*Dry equilibrium reflux boiling point (ERBP)–the boiling point of new, freshly opened brake fluid.
**Wet ERBP–the boiling point of brake fluid having absorbed 3 percent water. Only 3 percent water contamination
is often sufficient to reduce a DOT 3 fluid’s boiling point below the DOT minimum.

The aggressive driving conditions and sudden stops common to some on- and off-road motorcycle and ATV applications
can literally boil conventional brake fluid, leaving behind a discolored, dirty solution that can promote deposit
formation and corrosion on braking components. Worn brake fluid also fails to deliver adequate protection against
water ingress common to powersports equipment exposed to the elements.
The synthetic base stocks and superior additives in AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids excel in demanding powersports
applications, providing reliable brake lever and pedal response, corrosion protection and longevity as compared to
conventional brake fluids. AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids are the product of choice for racing, heavy hauling or
leisure powersports applications.
