Home' Australian Automotive Aftermarket Magazine : Australian Auto Aftermarket e-Zine - Mar 13 Contents Blue Titanium Stripe brake pads improve stopping power
Blue Titanium Stripe brake pads that Bendix has recently introduced represent advanced technology to further
improve initial stopping power.
The high friction Blue Titanium Stripe on
the brake pad surface is designed to rapidly
mate with the rotor when brakes are first
Full braking performance is achieved
almost instantly which eliminates the need
to bed in the brakes.
Motorists will feel the difference
immediately following a brake service as the
pads will be bedded-in in just a few stops
after they have left the workshop.
The new Bendix Blue Titanium Stripe is
another improvement in brake technology
developed by Bendix engineers within the
Australian Research and Development Centre
adding a new level of stopping power straight
out of the box.
The original Bendix Titanium Stripe
eliminated the need for bedding-in brakes
saving both time and money.
This latest development with the Blue
Titanium Stripe goes even further, lasting
longer and creating the ideal brake pad and
rotor surface to give better braking
Bendix Blue Titanium Stripes are made
from metamorphic minerals created in nature
under extremely high pressure and
Thicker in construction, the new Bendix
Titanium Blue Stripe will last longer and
withstand harsher braking conditions.
According to Bendix brake development
engineers, motorists will feel the friction
instantly with a positive pedal feel the
moment they drive out of the workshop.
This is generating high customer
satisfaction levels, confidence in the
workshop and return business for the trade.

Penrite brake fluids
Brake and clutch fluids are high temperature hydraulic type oils designed to reduce the amount of force
required to engage the braking or clutch system on a vehicle.
Brake fluids are not normally
compressible, therefore they directly transfer
force at one end into increased pressure at
the other end.
Brake fluids are generally not petroleum
based based products as these can have an
adverse effect on some types of rubbers and
seals in a braking system.
Brake fluids are generally very
hygroscopic, meaning they absorb water.
The more water they absorb, the less
effective they become as water is
compressible to a certain degree, which is
one of the main reasons for 'spongy' feeling
The term DOT as seen on brake fluid
refers to the classification by the Department
of Transport in the United States of America.
Generally the higher the number following
the DOT value, the more heat the fluid can
absorb and still work correctly.
Lower DOT fluids such as 2 and 3 are
more susceptible to water absorption and
their lifespan is shorter than DOT 4 or higher.
Brake fluids must protect against
corrosion in the braking system that can be
made up of multiple types of materials
including steel, aluminium, rubber and
It must also perform consistently over
extended periods of time, so it needs to
maintain its viscosity over a wide range of
temperatures from extremely hot to very cold.
Like all Penrite products, the absolute
best base products are selected to ensure
that Penrite offers a premium performance
end product to customers and the Penrite
brake fluids are no exception to this rule.
Penrite's brake fluids are designed and
manufactured to exceed world standards and
specifications, giving customers better

4WDs, light commercial, tractors and
motorcycles and has a very high boiling point
protection of 240 degrees Celsius.
Penrite Super Dot 4 Brake Fluid is a non-
petroleum based, premium fully synthetic
brake and clutch fluid suitable for a wide
range of vehicles requiring Dot 3, Dot 4 or
Super Dot 4 fluids.
It is recommended for passenger car,
4WDs, light and heavy commercial, tractors
and motorcycles and has an extremely high
boiling point protection of 275 degrees
Penrite Racing Brake Fluid is a premium
fully synthetic poly alkylene glycol ether ester
based brake fluid for long life and maximum
It offers better compatibility with system
components compared to silicone or silicate
ester type products.
Penrite Racing Brake Fluid is competition
tested and proven to offer the ultimate in
extreme temperature protection, long life and
reliability when it matters most with a high
temperature protection of 310 degrees
Penrite's brake fluids come in a package
size to suit nearly all requirements.
All three products are available in a
500ml retail pack size while the Dot 3 and
Super Dot 4 are also available in four litre
packs for smaller workshops and 20 litre cask
packs that protect the product longer against
hygroscopic reactions associated with brake
and clutch fluids once they are opened.
