FERODO Fuse+ Technology brake pads are the result of more than three years of intensive research and development at the FERODO Tech Centre. Fuse+ Technology pads feature a unique combination of more than 20 precisely engineered components that work in concert to deliver unsurpassed braking performance, helping to lower the traditional drawbacks associated with conventional materials. These new pads also include FERODO’s exclusive zero-copper Eco Friction Technology, which reduces dusting and cuts pad emissions by 60 percent.
Fuse+ Technology pads extend the FERODO brand’s 125-year history of game-changing innovation. FERODO in 1922 became the first manufacturer to supply OE friction linings for a mass production car.
In 1956 the brand introduced the world’s first disc brake pad. Today FERODO product engineers continue to explore new material formulations, pad designs and other innovations to address needs among the world’s leading automakers and workshop professionals.
The new technology also continues the brand’s heritage of bringing OE braking technologies, quality and performance to the aftermarket. In addition to being developed in the brand’s European OE research-and-development facility, Fuse+ Technology brake pads are manufactured to OE standards in Tenneco’s European production facilities.
FERODO Fuse+ Technology brake pads are available immediately for almost 100 premium-level vehicle models from Europe’s premier automakers, including Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen. Each set of pads is packaged complete with all required accessories to ensure fast, easy installation.
