New HELLA Pagid High Carbon Disc Brake Rotor Program Leads the Market with Exceptional Performance, Reliability and Coverage
– Motorsports performance and reliability for everyday road vehicles –
Peachtree City, GA – HELLA Pagid Brake Systems, one of the leading brake systems suppliers offering quality replacement parts to the aftermarket, has just launched the new line of HELLA Pagid High Carbon Disc Brake Rotors. These new advanced rotors are designed to deliver motorsports performance and reliability in a wide range of everyday road vehicles. Using OE specifications, HELLA Pagid is able to provide exact fit and finish, while providing better material content to give customers more confidence in the stopping power of their vehicles.
Most complete range on market
The new program represents the most complete range of high carbon rotors available in the market. HELLA Pagid now offers 282 part numbers and covers 8,708 applications for a total of 15,600,000 vehicles now on the road in the USA. Other brake rotor manufacturers offer between 120 and 180 part numbers in their range. Hella Pagid plans to increase the range with more extensions every six months.
Reduced brake noise and fade
Because density plays a major part in noise absorption, the HELLA Pagid High Carbon Rotors deliver the maximum density per rotor possible for silent brake operation. The rotors also provide better heat transfer for a cooler running brake system, which is fundamental in reducing brake fade.
Increased friction consistency
Brake rotors undergo a large deal of stress during braking and can distort, causing judder or vibrations. HELLA Pagid relies on rigorous microstructure inspections and specialized foundry processes to produce a rotor that controls the stress more efficiently to maintain a high level of friction consistency. These same processes reduce the risk of stress cracks and permanent deformation (warping).
Corrosion protected, ready to install
HELLA Pagid High Carbon Rotors are coated to ensure corrosion protection. Corrosion causes cooling issues and wheel fitment issues that can lead to service comebacks. The rotors come ready to install right out of the box, eliminating the need for brake clean to degrease the rotors and any additional prep time for installation.
Increased brake comfort and confidence
HELLA Pagid High Carbon Rotors use the tightest run out specifications possible to reduce “pad knock back” and “judder”. This gives customers better braking performance overall and a more confident pedal feel. Pad knock back is caused by excessive run out, which pushes the caliper pistons back. This increases the air gap between the pad and rotor surfaces and creates a soft pedal, which ultimately makes the customer lose confidence in the brake job.
HELLA Pagid High Carbon Rotors are sold individually and packaged in a protective plastic bag as one unit per box. Includes mounting instructions and mounting hardware, if required.
