Federal-Mogul introduces coated brake disc range designed for alloy wheels
Michigan’s Federal-Mogul, a global supplier of powertrain, chassis and safety technologies, has introduced a new range of brake discs designed specifically for use on vehicles with alloy wheels. The Ferodo brakes product range now includes the new Ferodo Coat Plus premium coated brake discs and is available immediately through distributors. “The benefits of Ferodo Coat Plus discs extend beyond an attractive appearance; each disc is engineered to provide superior braking performance, without noise or vibration,” said Mario Garelli, Federal-Mogul braking products manager, EMEA.
“In addition, there is no need to remove the coating prior to installation, so the job can be completed faster and without the use of cleaning agents.” The Coat Plus brake discs expand the brand’s broad range of discs for virtually all vehicle models. The introduction of these premium coated discs enables repair businesses to address the needs of what Federal-Mogul identifies as a “growing number of consumers who want a corrosion-free disc surface to be visible through their alloy wheels”.
The disc coating is applied through a sophisticated, computer controlled process that prevents thickness variation and helps ensure extended resistance to corrosion. These new discs can be identified by a suffixed “C” added to the existing Ferodo brake disc part number. The latest Ferodo product applications information is available through the company’s electronic catalogue on its e-Commerce website.
