Abstract:

Selected Australian Army vehicles were converted from polyglycol to silicone brake fluid using experimental flush-fill techniques. Performance trials and analysis of samples taken after conversion indicate that techniques associated with the conversion do not remove all polyglycol from the vehicles tested. Accordingly, the technical advantages possible from the use of silicone fluids are not achieved. Author
