Investigation into the use of water based brake fluid for light loads
This paper addresses the possibility of using water based fluid as a bake. fluid for light loads. Characterization of.both standard and water based brruced fluids formulated was carried out. The properties of ttie latter were com pared with that of a standard commercial brake fluid. The actual test of the formulated brake fluid was carried out with a Nissan Sunny vehicle model 1.5 within the speed range of 20km/hr to 80km/hr at the permanent campus· of University of Uyo and the· braking effiqiency obtained at test to its suitability for light loads.
