I just brought in a shipment of Castrol React SRF for my own car and have spare ones for sale $40 below Australian price at $85/L ea. Brisbane pick up but will ship for $20 up to six containers.
The worlds best brake fluid with a wet boiling point (wet boiling temp is the only number of real interest) of 270 degrees Celsius. This is 54 degrees higher than the next best brake fluid! Dry boiling point of 310 degrees. Used by a number of F1 teams - say no more!
Do not be turned off by the initial high price. Castrol SRF is less hygroscopic (water attracting) than other brake fluids maintaining its high boiling point for much longer than other brake fluids. Many run Castrol SRF all season and just bleed fluid out of the calipers every other race/track day while other fluids need to be completely flushed out multiple times during the season. In the long run Castrol SRF will run much more economical and provide better performance than any other brake fluid.
Of course these features also benefit high performance street cars.
For all braking systems where conventional or polyglycol brake fluids are recommended in high performance vehicle and competition applications. Highly recommended for cars used for “Club and Track days”
Features & Benefits
Widely used in racing, from Formula One, sports cars, V8 Supercar and Grand Prix and Superbike motorcycles.
The exceptionally high dry boiling point (higher than 300°C) makes Castrol React SRF Racing ideal for use under arduous braking conditions such as rallying or racing. It exceeds the boiling point requirements of DOT 5 brake fluids.
Very high vapour lock point and has the additional advantage of sustaining high vapour lock point characteristics during its service life.
It is miscible with all conventional fluids meeting the US Federal Standards FMVSS 116 DOT 3, DOT 4 and DOT 5.1, ISO 4925 and current SAE J1703. This means that changing the brake system to Castrol SRF is easy. Drain and flush out the conventional brake fluid with Castrol SRF then top up the system with Castrol React SRF Racing. Although Castrol React SRF Racing is miscible with conventional brake fluids, topping up Castrol React SRF Racing with conventional brake fluids will reduce the benefits of the product.
It is compatible with seal rubber and metal materials used in brake systems using conventional polyglycol brake fluids.
It is similar in viscosity to conventional brake fluids so is easy to bleed like conventional brake fluids.
Castrol React SRF Racing is suitable for all disc and drum brake systems used in motorsport with the exception of those for which a mineral oil is prescribed. lt complies with the requirements of the following specification:
US FMVSS 116 DOT 3 and DOT 4.
Australian Standard 1960 Grade 3
