Brake and Clutch Fluids

Caltex Brake and Clutch Fluid DOT 4

Caltex Brake and Clutch Fluid DOT 4 is advanced, non-petroleum automotive brake fluid designed for use in conventional hydraulic brake and clutch systems, particularly in severe service conditions or where DOT 4 fluids are recommended. Provides an additional safety margin against โ€œvapor lockโ€ compared with brake fluids meeting less stringent specification requirements.

Available in

250 ml
500 ml
  • Maintains braking performance longer
    Higher boiling point, and the ability to retain boiling point in service, minimizes vapor formation at high temperatures, enabling braking performance to be maintained in service for longer than DOT 3 types.
  • Inventory savings
    Widespread suitability for different motor vehicles may provide inventory benefits. In addition, vehicle manufacturers are increasingly specifying this level of performance.
  • Protects metal surfaces
    Buffered formulation provides protection from acidic oxidation products for cast iron and steel components by maintaining the pH of the fluid in the alkaline range. Advanced technology inhibitors protect other metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, zinc and tin from corrosion by forming a protective layer on the surface.
