Textar launches new lubricant for brake systems28 June 2019

Brake brand Textar has launched Hydra Tec, a lubricant for hydraulic components in brake and clutch systems.

Said to be ideal for lubricating cylinder working surfaces, pistons and sealing elements, Hydra Tec also protects other metallic components against corrosion thanks to its water-repellent properties.

Scott Irwin, head of technical training at Textar manufacturer TMD Friction, said: “Hydra Tec is the ideal solution for mechanics when lubricating the caliper’s moving parts.

“We recommend applying a thin, even layer to the working surfaces of the brakes, minus the brake pads, and avoiding using mineral oils as substitutes as the constituents can cause seals to swell and adversely affect the functions of the caliper.”

Available in 180ml tubes, Hydra Tec is compatible with EPDM caoutchouc rubber and brake fluids, including DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 4LV and DOT 5.1.
