Raybestos has extended coverage of its RPT rust prevention technology rotor and caliper lines with 67 new rotor part numbers and 72 caliper part numbers.
“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,” said Kristin Grons, marketing manager at 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.”
The rotor coats each rotor’s entire surface and the cooling vanes. Most modern vehicles have an open-wheel design which can leave brake parts, particularly rotors, more exposed to the elements. A rotor that is uncoated can lead to corrosion and red rust forming quickly.
The caliper contains a proprietary zinc electroplating process that helps prevent rust and provides protection for all kinds of weather.
In the last part of 2017, Raybestos brought in 372 part numbers, 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.
