i) The Hella Pagid Brake Systems brake pads range comprises more than 2,300 items, manufactured in line with 50 different recipes. These are designed to precisely reflect the respective requirements of the various vehicle types, brake systems, engine outputs, driving loads, and braking characteristics. What's more, Hella Pagid Brake Systems disc brake pads are found in almost 100 % of the vehicles on the roads of Western Europe.
Tests are hugely important at Hella Pagid Brake Systems. Products are tested, not only at the group's own research and development center, but also on the roads under real conditions. The standards are always the exacting requirements and performance specifications of the vehicle and braking system manufacturers. The program puts our brake pads through up to 300,000 test kilometers and 1,000 hours of test bed testing before releasing them for serial production. For Hella Pagid Brake Systems, maximum safety and performance are key.
ii) TRW brake pads now come with Cotec technology which applied silicate coating on the friction material to improves the brake behavior of new brake pads.
TRW COTEC brake pads can stop vehicles up to seven metres quicker than other premium brake pads during the first few stops following a pad change (known as the bedding-in period). This innovative technology means that we out-perform all major competitors during the bedding-in period of the pad, when the friction co-efficient is lower than usual.
Because it improves safety from the moment the driver leaves the garage, we've made the decision to coat most of our brake pads with COTEC. Over 90% of the brake pads that TRW sells in Europe, have already been COTEC coated.
Both Pagid and TRW are available for all model for BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Mini Cooper, Volkswagen, Porsche, Bentley and etc. Fully imported from Europe. No question asked, one to one swap for warranty claim.
