Coverage for Raybestos New and Remanufactured Calipers Expands

Posted on December 4, 2018

Brake Parts Inc. has added part numbers to its premium Element3 new plated brake calipers and Raybestos R-Line remanufactured calipers.

The additional part numbers expand coverage for popular domestic and import nameplate applications.

“This new coverage allows Raybestos to continue to make timely shipments and ensure our customers have the parts they need, when they need them,” said Kristin Grons, marketing manager for Brake Parts. “Raybestos’ new and remanufactured calipers are plated to provide peak performance in even the harshest conditions.”

The company says that with 100% new components, no core return and lower warranty rates, Raybestos Element3 new plated calipers provide hassle-free installation and optimal performance. Designed and manufactured to strict Raybestos engineering specifications, these premium calipers offer original-equipment precision at a fraction of the cost of OE.

The aluminum or plated castings provide superior corrosion prevention and meet (ASTM B117) 96-hour salt spray corrosion resistance test standards. The line is ideal for high VIO and problem applications, and includes plated brackets, where required, according to Brake Parts.

Raybestos R-Line plated calipers are premium quality, remanufactured calipers designed to function and fit like OE and deliver continued functionality and high-quality appearance through an extended life.

The company says its proprietary RPT Rust Prevention Technology provides all-weather zinc plating comparable to OE. The calipers meet (ASTM B117) 96-hour salt spray corrosion resistance test standards and industry-leading processes and testing ensure reliable performance in harsh conditions. The line is engineered to ensure safe, leak-free operation and includes bracket, seals and bleeder screws.
