NOT SUITABLE FOR VEHICLES WITH MINERAL BASED BRAKE OR CLUTCH SYSTEMS.

The Textar 260 DOT 4 /160 is a synthetic brake and clutch fluid based on borate ester technology, together with a comprehensive inhibitor package. DOT 4 fluids are widely used in Europe because of their greater resistance to boiling point decline in service and are recommended by most vehicle manufacturers.

This is Textar’s “mainstream” aftermarket brake fluid, and as such has wide applicability including cars, motorcycles and light trucks.

Textar products are tested to standards beyond what would be normal. For example, this product has a minimum dry and wet boiling point of 260°C and 160°C respectively, greatly exceeding the DOT 4 minimums of 230°C / 155°C. This amounts to extra user safety and potentially product life.

As one would expect from a major brake manufacturer, expertise gained from long experience of working with braking systems and vehicle manufacturers benefits our entire product range with products being tested to standards far above the normal.

Features and Benefits:

  • High boiling point to resist vapor lock.
  • Borate ester technology allows better retention of boiling point in service.
  • Good lubricity
  • High thermal stability
  • Controlled rubber swelling
  • Anti-corrosion and oxidation protection

Recommendations for use:

  • Vehicles for which a DOT 4 fluid is specified
  • Vehicles fitted with antilock systems
  • Can be used in vehicles fitted with Electronic Stability Programs (ESP) in most European climates. (In very cold climates Textar DOT 4 LV is recommended)
  • Hydraulic clutch systems
