A Closer Look At Brake-Fluid Boiling Points

A Closer Look At Brake-Fluid Boiling Points

A higher wet boiling point means better braking performance and a safer vehicle.

If you ever want to impress your friends or co-workers, tell them about the equilibrium reflux boiling point, and its importance in selecting a high-quality brake fluid.

If they look at you with a blank stare, just explain that the equilibrium reflux boiling point, or ERBP, is just the technical term for determining if a brake fluid has what it takes to stand up to the high temperatures produced during the braking process. Before a brake fluid hits the market, it must be tested to meet certain ERBP values that are spelled out in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, specifically Part 571 No. 116.
