Spectra gets first CAPA certification


Spectra Premium now has the first and only radiators to be certified under the CAPA standard.

CAPA 601 Radiator Standard certification establishes objective and measurable quality standards and specifications for replacement parts. Spectra recently certified its radiators to this standard.

Jason Best, Spectra’s senior vice president – aftermarket, called the announcement a clear differentiator for the company.

“This achievement is another testament to our commitment to always go above and beyond our customers’ needs,” he said. “We are proud and honoured to be granted this first-in-the-market CAPA product certification.”

The standard assesses fit, material composition, dimensions, appearance, function, construction and retaining features. Fraud-proof and trackable seals on the parts ensure that technicians and vehicle owners are getting superior-quality, certified aftermarket radiators.

CAPA’s executive director applauded the move and welcomed Spectra to the standard.

“Spectra Premium’s compliance with CAPA’s comprehensive standards is the best insurance the market can get to avoid the serious consequences of a poor quality, ill-fitting and underperforming radiator,” said Jack Gillis. “As engine technology becomes more and more sophisticated, the need for precise, accurate, and effective cooling systems has become critical.”
