In addition to the company’s renowned motor and gear oils, Red Line Synthetic Oil, a leading manufacturer of performance lubricants, has a number of fluids and additives to keep brake, cooling and fuel systems performing at their best. These products include the company’s RL-600 brake fluid, WaterWetter and SI-1 Fuel System Cleaner.

A properly maintained brake system is extremely important for both safety and performance. Repeated hard stops generate heat and place the brake fluid under immense pressure, both of which are detrimental to the operation of the brakes, often leading to brake fade. With a dry boiling point of 604 degrees Fahrenheit (318° C), Red Line’s RL-600 Brake Fluid is a DOT4 fluid developed to resist these issues and maintain lubricity, compressibility and viscosity under even the most extreme conditions. Additionally, brake fluids are subject to moisture absorption which can reduce the fluid’s wet boiling point, lowering the brakes’ overall effectiveness. Red Line’s RL-600 combats this problem with its use of components designed to reduce moisture absorption.
In hot weather or under extreme track use, coolant temperatures can rise considerably, causing overheating and potential engine damage. By lowering the surface tension of water, Red Line’s famous WaterWetter® has proven to lower engine temperatures by up to 20°F, allowing for greater heat transfer from the engine’s metal components to the coolant. This method reduces the chances of overheating and the formation of harmful cylinder head hot spots, while also protecting against corrosion by forming a protective film inside these parts.
WaterWetter doubles the efficiency of water and provides crucial rust and corrosion protection in water only cooling systems. As an added benefit, WaterWetter may also allow for more spark advance and subsequently increased torque. Street cars using 50/50 ethylene or propylene glycol/water solutions benefit from the use of WaterWetter’s cooling power even under normal driving conditions, such as stop and go traffic, which can overburden a vehicle’s cooling system and cause overheating.
Vehicle’s fuel systems are often overlooked because standard maintenance intervals can be lengthy and the work itself can be time consuming and expensive. Due to inadequate octane capacity on the part of modern oil refineries, additives to pump gasoline often have a negative effect on vehicle engines by choking fuel injector tips with deposits, causing the engine’s fuel economy and overall performance to suffer. These deposits can occur in just a few thousand miles. In order to return engines to peak performance, Red Line created SI-1® Complete Fuel System Cleaner designed to clean injector tips and eliminate harmful lean misfires. Approved for use in both fuel-injected and carbureted gas engines, users can simply pour the product into their gas tanks, no mechanic required.
Since the beginning, Red Line Synthetic Oil has created products for racing applications with the idea that racers require the best of the best. This philosophy of creating the most advanced lubricants has become a pillar of the brand, not just within its racing line, but with all of its product offerings. Red Line creates its synthetic oils and advanced additives using the world’s finest base stocks, so consumers can rest assured their vehicles are receiving only the highest quality fluids.
