Ferodo Brake and Clutch Fluids

FERODO BRAKE & CLUTCH FLUIDS
Ferodo offers a wide range of brake fluid solutions, designed to provide you with consistent and reliable performance when you need it most.

Our DOT4 and DOT5.1 specifications are suited for general road use, while our FORMULA and SUPER-FORMULA formulations have been developed for the specialized requirements of motorsport.

Hydraulic brake and clutch systems are only as reliable as the fluid coursing through their veins. So you can be sure it pays to invest in quality fluids designed for your intended application and use.

All Ferodo fluids are of Glycol based ether composition, and are suitable for brake and clutch use.

FERODO BRAKE FLUIDS CHARACTERISTICS
We’ve spoken quite often in the past at length about why it’s essential to choose the right brake pads for your intended application. But one thing enthusiasts often don’t consider is the final piece of the puzzle – choosing an adequate brake fluid to bring the whole braking system together.

Brake temps can soar sky high whenever a car is driven in a spirited manner – whether that be from a simple run through a winding road, to a short sprint event, or even a full race day.

And it’s no surprise that if you’re not fully prepared with the right brake fluid flowing through your system, you’re going to have a bad time, at the worst time possible.

Brake fade is not a good thing to experience, and outright brake failure even more so. By utilizing the correct fluid for the temperatures your brake system will see, you’ll ensure that your brake fluid doesn’t reach boiling point and braking performance will remain optimal during use.

Use the below guide to assess which brake fluid is most suitable for your application. If your brakes are still getting excessively hot even with the highest temperature-rated product, then your braking system is either poorly ducted, or more typically, simply too small and must be upgraded to suit the demands.

For best results, brake fluid should also be re-drained, re-placed and re-bled after each heavy race weekend.
