Brake Parts Expands Coverage of Rotors and Calipers With ‘Rust Prevention Technology’

Posted on February 1, 2018

Brake Parts Inc. has added 67 rotor part numbers and 72 caliper part numbers to Raybestos RPT Rust Prevention Technology product lines.

“The timing of new RPT Rust Prevention Technology rotor and caliper part number introductions couldn’t be better as large parts of the country are currently dealing with harsh winter weather conditions and corrosive road treatments,” says Kristin Grons, marketing manager, Brake Parts Inc.

“Raybestos RPT coated rotors and plated calipers provide all-weather protection against the elements, including snow, salt and rain, inhibiting corrosion and rust.”

RPT Rust Prevention Technology coated rotors use a propriety finishing technology to evenly coat each rotor’s entire surface, including the cooling vanes. The company says full Grey Fusion 4.0 coating helps resist corrosion and significantly delays rust-induced performance issues. Open-wheel designs on modern vehicles leave brake parts, particularly rotors, more exposed to the elements. If a rotor is uncoated, corrosion and red rust begin to form immediately.

RPT Rust Prevention Technology plated brake calipers are engineered to face the toughest weather conditions. A proprietary zinc electroplating process helps prevent rust and provides protection for all kinds of weather. The company says the plated brake calipers maintain their high-quality appearance throughout their service life, delivering continued functionality and an extended service life.

In total, Raybestos added 372 part numbers during the fourth quarter of 2017, including 151 brake rotors, 41 brake pad sets, 98 brake caliper and brackets, 10 brake calipers, 16 master cylinders, 13 brake hoses, two wheel cylinders, 33 hardware numbers and eight wheel hub assemblies.
