Brake fluid wears down over time leaving your brakes vulnerable to corrosion. BrakeStrip tests for traces of copper according to MAP established guideline, determining the copper level of the brake fluid in 60 seconds.

“We saw a need and chose to work with new car dealers because they already have the necessary equipment if there is a repair needed,” said Jon Petty

Brake failure accounts for 5% of car accidents every year in the United States. Brake fluid is the key to stopping your vehicle; it is the lifeblood of your braking system. In response, Phoenix Systems has launched Project Stop Safe to create awareness and provide complimentary brake fluid testing through a network of authorized dealers. Since 2000, when their brake fluid test strips were patented, over 80 million tests have been completed nationwide.

Project Stop Safe is designed to standardize the marketing and execution of Phoenix Systems’ brake fluid safety inspection. Dealers are also trained and offered support from Project Stop Safe staff throughout their time on the program. Project Stop Safe dealers stand apart as the dealerships that go the extra mile to ensure customer safety.

On average 50% of all vehicles tested will show signs of copper corrosion and require a brake fluid exchange. Brake fluid is the key component of the vehicle’s brake system and over time, it deteriorates and damages other brake components like the proportioning valve insert, the anti-lock brakes, RWAL reset switch piston, and the import height valve pistons.

Not only is it costly to repair these parts, it affects the stopping ability and brake system safety of the vehicle. Phoenix Systems is recruiting dealers nationwide to participate in the program to provide consumers with a complimentary brake fluid safety inspection in less than 15 minutes. The brake fluid safety inspection is a quick and easy procedure that prevents costly damage and even total brake failure.

“We saw a need and chose to work with new car dealers because they already have the necessary equipment if there is a repair needed,” said Jon Petty, managing partner of Phoenix Systems. “We have found that most dealers are very community focused,” Petty reported.

Phoenix Systems has already sold over 80 million brake fluid test strips and the product has been well received because over half of the vehicles tested will require a brake fluid exchange.
