This stop-and-go process, sometimes called “burnishing,” alters and usually increases the coefficient of friction between the rotor and pad to ensure stable braking power.
The contest was developed to bring awareness to a recent product expansion, that Akebono now offers abutment clip hardware for all popular applications across all three brands; ProACT, EURO and Akebono Performance, totaling more than 400 part numbers.
This marks the fourth time the Akebono EURO line has been recognized as the best overall aftermarket part for import vehicles.
The product awareness campaign will continue through the end of the year, and is expected to conclude sometime in the first half of 2020 after the transition of parts has been completed.
