Phoenix Systems Announces Agreement to License and Market Ford-Branded Brake Fluid Test Strips

St. George, UT: Phoenix Systems has just announced a licensing agreement to produce and market Ford-branded brake fluid test strips.

The most interesting aspect of the test strips is the innovative thinking behind them. Though automobile brake lines are made of steel their bores are coated with copper, which eventually deteriorates and contaminates the fluid. The test strip alerts you to the degree of contamination, if any.

A brake fluid test strip takes seconds to conduct, provides proof of a needed brake fluid service and often results in additional business for a shop. If, indeed, the fluid needs to be renewed there’s the added benefit that, during the process, evidence of frozen calipers, torn seals or seized ABS units might be detected and addressed.

Brake fluid is regularly renewed in race cars, particularly road race cars though less so in passenger cars. However, the practice toward regular checks is gaining ground. Motivated by a simple color test that takes approximately 60 seconds to mature, it provides a visual indication of brake fluid health.

Phoenix developed the Ford product with the understanding that the brake fluid test needed to show the exact condition of brake fluid—no more guessing. Changing brake fluid when appropriate halts corrosion, extends the life of brake parts and improves safety.

Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price for 100-count bottle of test strips is $81.99

Background: Phoenix Systems originally blazed their trail in brake bleeders and more recently introduced the reverse bleeder, which was also licensed under the Ford brand name. A one-person operation the reverse bleeder is a light, portable device that bleeds brake and clutch systems in fewer than 10 minutes.

Another Recall Due to Corrosion Is it Time to Test Your Brake Fluid?

Mitsubishi_logo_Mitsubishi_large
Consumer Affairs recently shared news of Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) recalling 74,836 vehicles due to corrosion inside the anti-lock brake system.

To determine whether your brake fluid is potentially corrosive simply ask your shop to use a copper corrosion test strip from Phoenix Systems. In 60 seconds or less the test strip will provide an extremely accurate measurement of the corrosivity of your brake fluid.

Hyundai Fined $17.35 Million by Feds Over Brake-Fluid Recall

Hyundai Fined $17.35 Million by Feds Over Brake-Fluid Recall

Hyundai has agreed to pay a $17.35 million fine for delayed reporting of a brake defect affecting Genesis luxury cars, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Thursday.

The defect involves corrosion in critical brake system components that can reduce braking effectiveness and increase the risk of a crash, NHTSA said. Hyundai was aware in 2012 that brake fluids used in the model year 2009-2012 Genesis cars did not sufficiently inhibit corrosion in key components of the vehicle’s brake system, the agency said.
