New lubricant from Textar
Brake specialist TMD Friction has expanded its range of Textar brake installation and maintenance products.
The new lubricant ‘Hydra Tec’ for hydraulic components in brake and clutch systems is now available in 180 millilitre tubes. It is particularly suitable for lubricating cylinder working surfaces, pistons and sealing elements, and makes it easier to install hydraulic brake components in the caliper.
It also protects working surfaces and other metallic components against corrosion thanks to its water-repellent properties. Hydra Tec is free from mineral oil and as such, is compatible with EPDM caoutchouc and commercially available brake fluids such as DOT 3, DOT 4, DOT 4LV and DOT 5.1.
TMD Friction recommends applying the paste thinly and evenly, and never using mineral oils or greases containing mineral oils as a substitute. Their constituents can cause seals to swell and adversely affect the functioning of the caliper.
