Brembo Racing Brake Fluid LCF 600 Plus
The main characteristic of a brake fluid is its extremely low compressibility coefficient and notable resistance to high temperatures (boiling point), preventing any great variation in its volume given the high working temperatures that it can reach during the braking phases.
These temperatures depend on the continuity and intensity of the braking action; in fact the liquid has a working temperature range from about -40C° to well over 200°C so the higher the boiling point, the better the characteristic of the liquid.
As a result of its characteristics, brake fluid easily absorbs moisture. This leads immediately to a reduction in its performance to the point where it becomes completely inefficient. Owing precisely to its hygroscopicity (i.e. the tendency to absorb moisture from the air), the brake fluid deteriorates over time and loses the above-mentioned characteristics, developing a tendency to produce water vapour bubbles as the temperature increases (the “Vapour Lock” effect, whereby vapour bubbles develop). This gradually lengthens the action of the brake lever once it has warmed up.
For this reason, the brake fluid must have certain specific characteristics:
- be as incompressible as possible
- have a high boiling point
- have low viscosity
- be chemically stable
- be chemically inert in relation to gaskets
Low compressibility factor at high temperature with more than 10% reduction in brake fluid compressibility at 356° F (180° C). High dry boiling point Typical Competitor Racing Fluids 590° F (310° C) Brembo Racing LCF 600 plus 601° F (316° C) COMPATIBILITY Compatible with all Brembo Racing Brake Systems. It can be mixed with other DOT3 and DOT4 racing brake fluids but for maximum performance advantage, before filling, other types of fluid should be drained from the brake system to avoid diluting the fluid characteristic. Brembo LCF 600 plus must not be used in fluid Brake Systems containing magnesium parts.
