New BrakeStrip Plus provides 2x the service opportunities and helps service centers deliver a safer and more reliable vehicle to their customer.

  1. GEORGE, Utah – With a desire to deliver more value to their customers, Phoenix Systems announces the retirement of its popular BrakeStrip at the end of 2018. The new and improved BrakeStrip Plus will take the place of BrakeStrip beginning January 2019.

BrakeStrip Plus is an innovative test strip which features a brake fluid test pad on one end and coolant test pads on the opposite end. The new strip will provide service centers 2x the service opportunities and help deliver more reliable and safer vehicles.

“We developed BrakeStrip Plus to give users the ability to determine the condition of both brake fluid and coolant in less than 90 seconds,” said Jeremiah Terry, Manager at Phoenix Systems. “BrakeStrip Plus reveals brake fluid and coolant problems before they occur and helps keep a vehicle functioning at its best. Our goal is to offer BrakeStrip Plus without increasing the price.”

For the past eighteen years, over 100 million brake fluid test strips have been used to diagnose worn out brake fluid and have produced over $3 billion in brake fluid service opportunities for service centers worldwide. The new BrakeStrip Plus will increase this tradition of service and is protected by multiple patents and patents pending.

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?

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.

BrakeShot™ – First new enhancer to fight corrosion by Phoenix Systems

St George, UT: Phoenix Systems has announced BrakeShot, the first new brake fluid enhancer designed to fight corrosion induced by the harmful effects of copper.

BrakeShot uses DOT guidelines and is specifically formulated to retard copper corrosion in the braking system. BrakeShot prevents sticking calipers, ailing master cylinders, and other ABS braking troubles brought about by corrosion and high copper levels, in the brake system.

To determine if BrakeShot can cure a contaminated system, use BrakeStrip to determine the copper parts per million (ppm) in the brake fluid. BrakeStrip is a 60-second brake fluid test that turns shades of purple according to the level of copper in the braking system.

If the strip indicates a copper level of between 50-175ppm, simply add a one-ounce bottle of BrakeShot to the master cylinder. After 50-100 miles of driving, BrakeShot will re-energize the corrosion inhibitors to protect all the metals in the entire brake system and prevent further corrosion. If, however, the test strip indicates 200ppm or greater, the brake system requires flushing and the fluid replaced.

With multiple patents pending a one-ounce shot of BrakeShot treats up to 1 liter of brake fluid, which is the average capacity of a vehicle’s braking system. Cheaper and quicker than a brake flush, BrakeShot is universal and works on all foreign and domestic vehicles. Packaged in a case of 12, each bottle retails for $15-$20, and expected to be released in July 2014.
