Since modern brake systems do more than just stop cars, Raybestos brand brake pads and rotors are designed and manufactured to supply technicians with the application-specific solutions needed to maintain stability and traction control while still providing the best in quiet, safe and efficient braking.
To make using “the best in brakes” even easier, Raybestos brand products are being relaunched through a campaign based on one line of hydraulics, two lines of rotors and three lines of friction. For young technicians who are confused by the proliferation of brands and part numbers, the new 1-2-3 strategy helps them match the appropriate Raybestos brand brake product with the presented application. With Advanced Technology friction and rotors at the forefront, getting the best quality, performance and value from a single source has never been easier.
Advanced Technology Disc Brake Pads
Produced with our finest ceramic and semi-metallic formulations, Advanced Technology brake pads deliver industry-leading performance, without noise or wheel dusting. A wide range of coverage means technicians will always have what they need whether they’re upgrading a tuner vehicle or servicing a hardworking fleet.
Raybestos brand Advanced Technology brake pads are engineered for demanding applications. Our “OE or Better” formulations reduce cost per mile with exceptional longevity, maintain high performance levels at high temperatures and perform quietly and cleanly.
Additional features of and benefits of Raybestos brand Advanced Technology disc brake pads include:
- Advanced friction formulations defeat noise, dust and fade while delivering increased stopping power;
- Application specific shim materials quiet noise, vibration and harshness;
- Fully slotted and chamfered for quiet operation;
- Nitrile-Polymer coated hardware for maximum noise suppression;
- Electronic wear Sensors where applicable;
- Advanced technology logo for easy identification;
- Protective foam packaging Insert; and
- First to Market with late-model coverage for select applications.
To maintain the lowest levels of noise and dusting during high performance braking, we recommend teaming Raybestos brand Advanced Technology disc brake pads with Raybestos brand Advanced Technology disc brake rotors.
Advanced Technology Disc Brake Rotors
Raybestos brand Advanced Technology disc brake rotors are engineered for superior performance to deliver the same stopping power, cooling properties and noise control as the original rotors they replace and cans even increase the life of the brake pad.
All Raybestos brand Advanced Technology disc brake rotors are ready to install right out of the box, never require turning and have the correct lateral run out, parallelism and surface finish due to precision machining.
Many economy rotors take a “one metallurgy fits all” approach. But, Raybestos brand Advanced Technology rotors always match the specific metallurgy of the original rotor and use damped iron to solve noisy, problem applications. We also duplicate the design of the cooling vane configuration for a 100% match to the original rotor to make sure it stays as quiet and cool as the original.
Excessive thickness variation, even as little as .0005”, can cause pulsation problems. Advanced Technology rotors are measured 360° around the rotor to ensure that the normal thickness variation is .0004” or less. Additionally, Advanced Technology rotors, as required, are mill balanced to two inch-ounces, while many economy rotors can exceed five inch-ounces.
Black Fusion technology, the corrosion resistant coating available on Raybestos brand Advanced Technology rotors, prevents unsightly premature rusting and gives a clean, finished look to the hub and edges of the rotor. This coating is tested in a salt spray test per ASTM-B117, which is the same test utilized by OE manufacturers and equates roughly two snow-belt winters.
Best of all, every Raybestos brand Advanced Technology rotor is installation ready and backed by our No Turn Guarantee. If, for any reason, your Raybestos brand Advanced Technology rotor requires any amount of turning or modification prior to installation, you can return that rotor to the place of purchase for an immediate replacement or full refund of your purchase price.
Advanced Technology Performance
Certain Advanced Technology rotors are designed for driving enthusiasts who demand a high performance braking style. These high performance rotors reduce brake fade to provide optimum stopping distances and feature milled slots to provide quick release of brake pad gasses. Additionally, radius chamfered holes deliver maximum air circulation for increased cooling.
As the official brake of NASCAR, Raybestos brand disc brake pads stand out, even under the most extreme hard-driving situations. Our exclusive compounds provide supreme stopping performance for specific applications like street rods, muscle cars and custom vehicles.
Many Advanced Technology rotors are designed to satisfy today’s driving enthusiasts who care about rotor visibility. When used with Advanced Technology brake pads, drivers of performance production cars and light street trucks, including street rods, muscle cars and custom cars, appreciate smoother braking, greater stopping capabilities, reduced brake dusting and excellent wet-weather braking.
Additionally, Raybestos brand Advanced Technology disc brake pads offer special pad sets specifically engineered for police application use perfectly suited for both quiet approaches during normal patrols and safer stopping/control during high-speed pursuits.
