Fras-le and NUCAP Promote Braking Safety during HDAW 2018

Fras-le and Nucap take advantage of the HDAW 2018 – Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week, which takes place in Las Vegas from January 22nd to 25th to promote the recent partnership that has given Fras-le the rights to produce pads using the NRS (Nucap Retention System), increasing the use of technology in all commercial pads produced in South America. The licensing that was granted in September 2017 ensures even greater braking safety.

“We produce critical components for the safety of vehicles and people, which permanently challenges us to develop or research friction products that give us this assurance in their use, which we find in the NRS system,” said Fras-le CEO, Sergio Carvalho.

Fras-le, which currently has a factory in Prattville-AL and a Sales and Engineering office in Southfield-MI, which enables serving customers quickly and efficiently, will present high-performance products such as commercial pads for air and hydraulic brakes as well as heavy-duty linings for drum brakes. Fras-le’s presence at the event is also aimed at prospecting new business to expand its participation in the North American market.

“FRAS-LE produces one of the best frictions in the world, able to withstand extreme temperatures in the harshest of environments,” added NUCAP CEO, Montu Khokhar. “As a responsible manufacturer, they have taken the next step by adding NRS SAFE, ensuring that their commercial brake pads offer a zero-failure rate – a critical necessity for commercial brake products.”
