Clean and easy

Professional Brake Cleaner from Holts

Published:  28 January, 2015

Holts Professional Brake Cleaner features a ball valve within the can, meaning that no matter what angle it is held at, the pressure will remain and a steady flow will be deposited, ideal when working in tight spaces. In addition, there is no chlorinated solvent, acetone or silicone CO2 propellant so it is safe on all surfaces, especially handy when that overspray occurs. While the cleaner is mainly for use on braking systems, its de-greasing properties means it can be used in other applications on mechanical areas of a vehicle. It is also affective in general applications, anywhere that degreasing is required, from floors to workbenches. Holts have recently changed their logo to reflect their British background, with the three line motif becoming a union flag either side of the brand name.

Workshops would traditionally offer to change just the brake pads or change both pads and discs but Pro-Cut points out a third option which provides a cheaper and better service to the customer - brake disc skimming. The Pro-Cut brake lathe should be used when only the pads need changing as a light skim is said to return worn discs to their as-new condition within minutes.
