 AP 551 - 600

AP racing brake fluids have been developed specifically for use under the harsh conditions encountered at the highest levels of motorsport.  AP brake fluids are compatible with all conventional hydraulic brake systems designed to conform to S.A.E. J1703 requirements.

The AP551 fluid is suitable for all forms of motorsports and conforms to FMVSS 116 DOT 3 specifications, but has a much higher boiling point than normal brake fluids intended for road use.  

AP600 fluid has been developed for racing applications where higher than normal temperatures are being experienced, like when using carbon/carbon discs and the ultimate in brake fluid performance is required. 



Castrol SRF

Motul RBF 600


Castrol SRF exceeds DOT 4 specifications.  Designed for heavy braking on heavier type cars.




The ultimate high performance brake fluid.  It far exceeds the standards of DOT 3 and DOT 4 brake fluids.  The package is filled with nitrogen to increase shelf life and eliminates contamination while factory sealed.



Exceeds all DOT 4 requirements

  • Minimal decrease of boiling point due to excellent water locking properties.
  • Non-foaming when filling and bleeding the brake system.
  • Excellent corrosion protection due to selected additives.
  • High safety tolerance against steam bubbles.
  • Makes brake fluid changing intervals of up to 3 years possible.

Wet and Dry Boiling Points:

The Dry Boiling Point is the temperature at which a brake fluid will boil in its virgin non-contaminated state. 
The highest temperature Dry Boiling Point available in a DOT 3 fluid is 572 F.

The Wet Boiling Point is the temperature a brake fluid will boil after it has been fully saturated with moisture. 
The DOT 3 requirement for wet boiling point is a minimum temperature of 284 F.
