It makes no difference what type of vehicle you own – a car, an SUV, a truck, or any other kind – you must be dead certain that your brakes operate properly. Bet you know why. Yeah, that is all about safety. Driving with a faulty braking system is a perilous practice since it can lead to serious car accidents. To stay on the safe side, every component should stay in optimal working order. Well, brake fluids and lubricants are not the last items on the list.

Brake fluid is an essential part of the hydraulic brake system. Without it, there's no way for the pressure you apply with your feet to make it to the brakes. There are 4 main types of brake fluid such as DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 5, and DOT 5.1. While DOT 3, DOT4, and DOT 5.1 are glycol-based and absorb water, DOT 5 is silicon-based and doesn't absorb moisture. This means that any water entering the brake system tends to form water pockets, which leads to brake corrosion.
We aim to provide our customers with the finest Brake Fluids & Lubricants the industry can offer, which is why we accept no compromise when it comes to the quality. Created by the most reputable names in the industry, such as Wilwood, Permatex, Loctite, STP, MotorMedic, Lucas Oil the Brake Fluids & Lubricants we've gathered for you feature precise design and everlasting durability.
One of the characteristics of the brake fluid is its boiling point. The higher the DOT number, the higher the boiling point. If brake fluid boils, it will mostly lose its ability to transmit force, partially or completely disabling the brakes. All glycol-based DOT fluids are fully compatible with each other, while DOT 5 can't be mixed with any of the other DOT fluids. As well as engine or transmission oil, brake fluid requires regular maintenance, it is recommended to change it every 1 to 2 years. So if you are looking for a premium quality product, we have you covered.
Brake lubricants reduce wear and tear on the brake parts and keep them from making screeching or squealing noises caused by vibrations between the caliper pistons and disc pads. These lubricants are totally different from the lubricants for other parts. The brakes get very hot, and a standard lubricant would burn off or melt in those extreme conditions. Brake lubricants are specially formulated liquids created exclusively for brake applications. Depending on the brake parts category, there are synthetic- and silicone-based lubricants. The latter type is used for boots, seals, and other plastic or rubber pieces when assembling calipers, master and wheel cylinders.

Having extra lube like Permatex® 85188 is a good thing to have so you can lube the caliper slide pins any time you change the brakes (just pull the slide pin out of the rubber boots/guide bushing, put a good coat of lube on the pin and reinsert, don't be afraid:). Also any moving or contact spots. You should keep some at all times if you are a casual DIY'er.
