Video Campaign 

With advances in friction compounds, rotor designs and automotive systems, braking technology is an ever evolving market full of misunderstanding and misinformation. In an effort to educate installers, Centric Parts offers a series of three advertisements that addresses the major components of brake systems; pads, rotors and calipers. These advertisements showcase Centric’s engineering, technical and manufacturing expertise to inform it’s target audience.

QR code technology is used to link the reader to online videos that expand on the initial printed message and from the videos, viewers are then directed to the Centric Parts website.
The Centric Parts advertising series is not simply a marketing campaign but a truly educational experience encompassing print and digital media. 

Clicking on the images below will open full screen versions of each Centric advertisement. Videos will open in a new browser window.


Brake Pads
Brake friction is the most rapidly evolving segment of automotive braking systems. Advancements in friction compound and materials development make choosing the appropriate pad challenging. This advertisement explains abrasive versus adherent friction compounds and how they affect braking performance. The first video of this series introduces Centric’s testing facility including multiple brake dynamometers and in-house manufacturing abilities. This establishes Centric Parts’ engineering, technical and manufacturing expertise.


Brake Rotors
In the second advertisement Centric addresses the subject of brake rotors. While often overlooked, the subtle details contained in brake rotor design are essential to optimizing brake system performance. In this ad, Centric addresses the warped rotor myth, rotor design and correct metallurgy. These details  put Centric Premium Brake Rotors in a class of their own. The linked rotor video introduces Centric’s engineering department including advanced coordinate measuring machines (CMM), Brinnel hardness tester and computer aided design (CAD) software.


Brake Calipers
The final installment of the Centric educational campaign features remanufactured calipers. Details such as new pistons, new hardware and application specific brake pads set the Centric Caliper program apart. The Centric caliper video walks the viewer through the entire process of caliper remanufacturing from initial inspection to assembly and final testing, further establishing Centric’s manufacturing capabilities.


Centric Parts videos are as entertaining as they are educational. Preventing noise associated with braking is a centerpoint of Centric's efforts in brake component development, making them rock is up to the Centric creative team.
