MCHENRY, Ill. — Brake Parts Inc. has added 100 part numbers to its Raybestos line of Opti-Cal plated brake calipers for a total offering of 390 part numbers covering 5,300 vehicle applications.
"As part of our ongoing commitment to the timely introduction of new part numbers, we have once again expanded our line of Opti-Cal calipers to increase coverage of popular domestic and import nameplate applications, giving our customers more of what they need to grow their brake businesses," said Kristin Grons, marketing manager, Brake Parts. "The Opti-Cal line started out as a problem-solver line, but due to its fast-growing popularity, it is quickly moving toward a full coverage line."
The Opti-Cal caliper line features new components, including a new caliper body, bracket and pistons; lubricated guide pins; pad mounting hardware; and aluminum- or zinc-plated housings and zinc-plated brackets for corrosion prevention.
The calipers undergo temperature durability testing, leak-free pressure testing, functionality testing and environment exposure testing to guarantee trouble-free operation, proper braking function and performance, the company said.
