Default Can Pentosin Racing Brake fluid be used in the Clutch Reservoir?

I have a feeling this might have been covered but I could not find a thread about this. I am looking for that extra stiffness in the pedals on both the Clutch and the Brakes! So I am going with Pentosin rather then ATE for my next brake fluid as I have been searching for ever and have read many posts saying ATE is corrosive over a long haul where as Pentosin is ABS safe and has a higher boiling point then ATE and is heavily used on many German vehicles and race tracks in Europe! I do have Stainless steel lines on all corners and I just got my stainless steel clutch line and I just want to know if it is safe to run in the clutch reservoir?

Ya I figured but sense I am swapping in my stainless clutch line, I will need to bleed the system so I wanted to make sure it will work! The fluid is rated as a Dot 4 but has a higher boiling and wet point making it exceed 5.1 levels. It is very similar to ATE.
