Safety for the end user is the priority for Pagid, and taking its commitment safety further, Pagid has implemented the ECE R90 standard across its best-selling brake discs for pre-November 2016 passenger car models, going above and beyond requirements.
Pagid brake discs are tested to the limits before release, and the extensive research and development matched with OE partnerships enables them to perform, time after time.
The R90 international requirement applies to all new brake discs fitted to vehicles manufactured after November 2016. Geometric parameters, chemical composition, design, microstructure, mechanical properties and key dimensions are all tested by an independent body, both in the lab and on the road. This ensures the brake parts match their stringent standards.
Pagid is part of TMD Friction, a global leader in OE and aftermarket brake manufacturing and a registered R90 approved licence holder. Producing the best-selling Pagid brake discs to the R90 standard for older vehicles is a big step forward for safety. UK roads are still very busy with vehicles manufactured before November 2016, and the additional quality assurance provided by meeting the evaluation is sure to provide many motorists with added peace of mind.
Phil Woodcock, Key Account Manager at Pagid commented:
“As the number one braking brand in the UK, we are very happy to go above and beyond the legislation with the Pagid brake disc range. The R90 rule set is designed to increase safety, making it more difficult for low-quality counterfeit braking products to make their way onto the roads. By offering Pagid brake discs for older vehicles that are R90 compliant, alongside our existing range of R90 approved brake pads and shoes, we hope to reassure customers that when they purchase Pagid, they are fitting a quality product that provides optimum fitment and performance.”
