Brake calipers better protect against rust

Reybestos has applied its rust prevention technology to its plated brake calipers. This will help provide a better defence against Mother Nature, the company announced.

The “calipers are premium quality, remanufactured calipers that function and fit like OE. A proprietary zinc electroplating process inhibits rust and provides all-weather protection against the elements,” Raybestos said in a news release.

Furthermore, said Kristin Grons, marketing manager at Brake Parts Inc., the “calipers are friction ready and engineered for safe, leak-free operation. Strict testing criteria guarantees the calipers provide trouble-free installation and optimal performance in demanding driving conditions such as rain, salt and snow.”

The news release also noted that the “calipers undergo a rigorous remanufacturing process to ensure they not only meet or exceed OE standards, but that they also adhere to global industry standards including SAE J1603, QC/T 592-2013, ASTM B117 and JASO C448. All recovered components are thoroughly cleaned, checked for wear and straightness, and zinc electroplated. The seals, boots, bleeder screws and O-rings are replaced with new materials.”
