Downloadable datasets availableAnnotation ability available
This SAE Standard covers motor vehicle brake fluids of the nonpetroleum type, based upon glycols, glycolethers and appropriate inhibitors, for use in the braking system of any motor vehicle such as a passenger car, truck, bus, or trailer. These fluids are not intended for use under arctic conditions. These fluids are designed for use in braking systems fitted with rubber cups and seals made from styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), or a terpolymer of ethylene, propylene, and a diene (EPDM).
SAE J1703 has been edited to correlate Table 1, Test Procedure numbering with the Test Procedure Sections.

Brake Fluids Standards Committee
The scope of the Brake Fluids Standards Committee is to develop and maintain relevant standards; recommended practices and information reports related to non-petroleum based brake fluids covering: The requirements of fluids for use in the hydraulic brake systems of motor vehicles; the handling, dispensing, and packaging of such fluids; service maintenance using such fluids. These documents are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that they reflect the changing needs and requirements of the industry.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
