Centric Parts Releases 7 New Technical Videos in Centric University Series
(Industry, Calif. - February 1, 2017) Centric Parts, North America’s leading manufacturer and supplier of OE and aftermarket brake and chassis components, announced today the release of seven new videos in the company’s Centric University technical series. This latest wave of videos covers brake friction, brake rotors and brake installation tips. They are available on the company’s website and YouTube channel.
These pads are specifically engineered to perform in pursuit, rescue, and emergency driving conditions. Fleet Performance pads can safely stop vehicles from high speeds and will continue to work at very high temperatures. *Hardware included where applicable.
Centric Fleet Performance brake pads are manufactured using the same positive molding process utilized by Original Equipment suppliers. Positive molding uses extreme pressure to compress the friction material and bond it to the backing plate. This process assures consistent friction material density throughout the pad, resulting in even wear and performance characteristics throughout the life of the brake pad.
Centric Fleet Performance are scorched; this additional process forces any impurities out of the friction material and pre-burnishes the pads to greatly accelerate the break-in process.
All Centric brake pads comply to current brake friction material legislation. More information regarding these state
mandates can be found here
• Para-aramid friction compounds are specially formulated
to provide linear response at both cold and hot temperatures.
• Positive Mold Technology.
• Precision cut backing plates.
• Low Dust formula.
• 100% shimmed.
• Scorched for improved pad/rotor bed-in.

• Hardware included *where applicable.
• Ask for Centric Fleet Performance Brake Pads (306 series).
Centric Fleet Performance Brake Pads have been tested to ensure superior performance in a variety of driving conditions. Each individual test is designed to push the brake friction to the limits and determine specific attributes including noise, overall friction performance and wear characteristics.
The StopTech Drive Cycle Test simulates city driving and typical driving conditions for a large percentage of fleet vehicles. The test consists of more than 4000 stops with a wide range of speed and time variations between stops measuring pad and rotor wear. Based on D931 Ford Crown Victoria Police Cruiser
SAE J2522is an industry standard friction screening test developed by SAE, and measures the overall friction performance of the material being tested.
