ATE Type 200 Amber Brake Fluid
ATE TYPE 200 Amber Brake Fluid is designed to excel within the extreme demands made on a race vehicle or by high performance drivers and exceeds all DOT4 standards. It is compatible with and will mix well with most DOT3, DOT4 or DOT 5.1 fluids.
The formula offers a minimal drop in boiling point due to outstanding water binding properties resulting in a long-lasting fluid that may not need to be changed for up to 3 years under normal highway driving conditions. Products with a lower wet boiling point have to be replaced considerably more often (e.g., DOT3 products should be replaced annually). The overall high dry and wet boiling points make this fluid an excellent choice for street driven vehicles, too, where brake fluid is flushed less frequently than that in race-driven vehicles.
|Boiling point minimum||536°F|
|Wet boiling point minimum||388°F|
|Features/BenefitsViscosity at -104°F||max 1,400 mm 2/5|
Designed to last up to 3 years under normal highway driving conditions. To maintain the functional reliability of brake systems, brake fluid must be changed according to the specifications of the vehicle manufacturer (quality and change interval). In race/track applications, it becomes even more critical that the brake fluid is routinely changed to maintain optimum performance.
This product data describes the properties of the ATE DOT 4 TYP 200 brake fluid intended for use as hydraulic fluids in brake and clutch systems of motor vehicles.
This brake fluid for hydraulic brake and clutch systems of motor vehicles exhibits the best capability for water absorption and the highest boiling point reserve of all ATE brake fluids.
The composition is governed by the water-binding polyethylene glycol ether boric acid esters and additives specially developed for this high-performance fluid.
The wet boiling point has been maximized at approx. 200°C in order to permit long intervals between brake fluid changes and to minimize the risk of vapor lock caused by used, watered brake fluid in heated-up brake calipers after extremely severe braking.
ATE DOT 4 TYP 200 brake fluid meets and even exceeds the requirements of brake fluid standards including FMVSS No. 116 – DOT 4, SAE J1704 and ISO 4925, Class 4. Shelf life at storage temperatures of –20° C/–4° F to 40° C/104° F: Up to 5 years in the original, factory-sealed packaging.
|Boiling point||min. 280° C/536°F|
|Wet boiling point||min. 198° C/388,4°F|
|Viscosity at –40°C/–40°F||max. 1,400 mm²/s|
|Viscosity at +100°C/212°F||2.2 to 2.8 mm²/s|
|Water Content||max. 0.20%|
Brake fluid must be replaced regularly. The replacement intervals specified by the vehicle manufacturer must be complied with. The instructions of the vehicle manufacturer with respect to the brake fluid specification must be observed.
