Performance tests

Padtech brake pads from Autoparts

Published:  05 July, 2013

A new promotional campaign for the Padtech brake pad has been launched by its exclusive distributor Autoparts and focuses on how the range's quality testing procedures exceed that of the ECE-R90 EU regulation.

Independent garages can now get posters and leaflets to demonstrate the quality of Padtech brake pads to customers. ECE-R90 states that all brake pads sold within the EU must pass a number of speed, performance and temperature tests. These pads are compliant to ECE-R90 but undergo additional tests on performance, comfort and durability, checking stopping distances, cold friction values and stability.

The range consists of more than 1,300 references and pads are marked with the manufacturing batch and date information for full traceability and come complete with a 12 month warranty.
