Why Your Brake Fluid May Need Conditioner

| December 4, 2017

Wondering if you should treat your brake fluid? Here’s what’s important: Brake fluid has been known to deteriorate before manufacturer-recommended brake service intervals (which are sometimes nonexistent). When that happens, brake system components are more vulnerable to rust. Then your vehicle’s stopping ability is determined by the effectiveness of rusted brake parts.

The stakes are high: When it comes to safety, brakes are the most important component in a vehicle. One simple way to know if your brake parts are corroding is by having your technician check the copper levels in your fluid at each oil change. Factory-installed brake lines are made from copper-coated steel. That copper is the first thing to deteriorate, then tiny copper ions will start to show up in the fluid.

When fluid shows copper corrosion between 10 ppm and 150 ppm and it’s before the BG Brake Service interval (30,000 miles/50,000 km), BG Brake Conditioner will boost anti-corrosion properties and maximize brake fluid performance.

The BG Brake Service with BG Fluid Conditioner is a powerful solution. Recommended every 30,000 miles (50,000 km), the BG Brake Service completely removes all the old brake fluid and replaces it with fresh fluid, supplemented with a conditioner that will maximize brake fluid performance.
