Abstract:
Present corrosion testing procedures for brake fluids assess the properties of fresh fluids under some forms of environmental stress (e.g., water content, elevated temperature). These tests may not accurately predict corrosion protection properties of fluid after the years of continuous service typical of North American practice. This paper describes the development of laboratory accelerated aging procedures which reproduce the chemical changes occurring in brake fluids during long-term service. Short-duration vehicular tests with these lab-aged fluids have reproduced specific modes of corrosion previously observed only after long-term customer use.
