Service the brake system properly!
High temperature MC-1600 grease is used for service of cars’ brake systems.
How does it work?
The grease provides better mobility of caliper parts, thereby increasing lifetime of brake pads.
- 1Suitable for all parts of car caliper.
- 2Doesn’t wash out by road chemicals.
- 3Operates at temperature from -50 ºC to +1000 ºC.
- 4Does not interact with rubber sleeves.

The use of caliper grease prevents problems with the brakes of the car and will extend the life of brake pads.
From -50 to 1000°С

Indications for use
- Squeal of brakes disturb
- Caliper shimming
- Uneven wear of brake pads
- Brakes are heated
- Unequal braking
Instructions for use
It is necessary to clean the caliper parts before use!
When applying a thin layer on the brake pads’ back side the grease effectively eliminates creaking.
Due to the MC-1600 high adhesion it is not washed out by road chemicals and retains plasticity during brake pads lifetime.
Brake piston movability makes the brakes more responsive.
Just 5 g of grease is sufficient for treatment of one car!

If you have a car, you must know
Difficult road conditions for caliperBrake caliper requires special care during the entire car operation period as it is exposed to various influences: dirt, high and low temperatures, road chemicals.
Essentially, the caliper system is a delicate structure. Caliper must smoothly and without seizing move along the slide pin, and rubber sleeves have to protect it from dust and moisture. But eventually the system is disturbed.
What happens to careless car ownersForgetting to service the brakes, you leave brake caliper alone with his bitter enemies.
When rubber sleeves give up, dirt and water get under them, and the process of oxidation starts on the moving parts. Brake pads start to shim, uneven wear appears, and squealing when braking is possible, piston turns sour: farewell to the uniform braking.
Careful driver changes brake pads rarely
If you care about your car, you should regularly lubricate the slide pins, back side of the brake pads and the brake piston.
The brake grease cares for rubber sleeves, without changing their dimensions or loss of elasticity.
The grease withstands critical temperatures even if with active driving. It also reduces friction between the slide pin and the movable part of the caliper if applied regularly. This allows the brake pad to be faster pressed to the brake disk (better braking), as well as to come away from it. Unnecessary contact phase decreases when the brake pedal is released – brake pads will serve longer!
If car piston is lubricated, it makes the brakes more responsive and prevents shimming of slide pins.
Negligence in the care of brakes
One should not forget to carry out prevention using MC-1600 grease. It is suitable for all parts of the caliper and does not affect rubber sleeves. In no case you must not use plain mineral-oil based lithium greases. It can only do harm: you just have to heat such grease higher than 60 ºC as it flows out and probably gets on the brake disc!
Greases with operating temperature up to 200 ºC dry up or are washed out in a couple of months. A loss of mobility of the slide pins leads to increased wear of the brake pads.
Rubber sleeve increased in 3 times and has lost leakproofness after graphite grease was used. Copper-containing aerosols usage gives similar effect.
Any car is worth to be served in time and with quality greases. Do not forget this!
How brake greases burn.
Brake greases often don’t withstand claimed temperatures.
In order to test them we use a simple method – we heat them in an oven.
The heating temperature of the brakes may reach 500 ºC or more, depending on braking intensity.
In the case of МС-1600 stable up to 1000 ºC powder remains after burning of the liquid phase. It will play the role of the separating lubricant and provide brake pad mobility, preventing its form "sticking". This is similar to talc, which is used by weightlifters. When liquid phase burns out from some other lubricants, a kind of the plasticine is formed, this is certainly not acceptable for brake pads.
Difference in braking distance
The grease provides better movability of caliper’s parts, thereby braking distance of a car decreases.
Impact on rubber sleeves
It is important that the grease does not affect rubber sleeves and dustcoats. For clarity, we have conducted a comparative test for greases from several manufacturers.
MC-1600 from St. Petersburg
It can be clearly seen how lubricated by American and German greases dustcoats, have increased in size. MC-1600 grease has had no effect at all.
It is used in technical centers.
Recommendations in the "Autobild" magazine
Škoda Superb test, published in the “Autobild” magazine in May 2014, has shown the improvement of many car parameters except the braking distance.
Braking distance increased by 7% despite the fact that car has been serviced at the official workshop by best German materials. That is why you should pay attention to the universal MC-1600 brake grease.
