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.
Centric Parts offers a complete line of medium duty brake system components including brake rotors, drums, friction and hydraulics. Each Centric medium duty part is engineered to meet or exceed original equipment performance and provide extended service life and worry free performance.
Medium Duty Drums and Rotors
Centric Parts offers a full range of medium duty brake rotors and drums for most popular applications. These premium replacement parts feature original equipment specifications and production processes ensuring superior performance and extended service life. Centric medium duty brake rotors and drums utilize an electrocoating finish that provides long lasting corrosion protection on all non friction surfaces. Centric medium duty rotors feature double disc ground finishes and are mill balanced for reduced vibration.
Centric 125 Series High Carbon Alloy Brake Rotors contain an advanced metallurgy that greatly reduces the possibility of pad squeal especially with higher friction, European style brake pad compounds. Proprietary Molybdenum and Chromium alloys resist rotor cracking during high performance use or repeat stop situations. This alloy also increases the friction couple improving brake performance and stopping power. Increased Chromium and Carbon content is also more resistant to oxidation.
Centric Parts' engineering team recognizes the challenges installers face and is constantly working to improve the design and function of Centric products. E-Coated ABS exciter rings do not corrode eliminating issues that commonly cause malfunctioning ABS systems.
Posi Quiet Extended Wear Brake Pads
Posi Quiet Extended Wear brake pads feature stable friction levels across a wide temperature range. Extended Wear brake pads are formulated for long pad life and reduced brake rotor wear and include all necessary hardware for complete installation.*
Centric Fleet Performance brake pads are specifically engineered to perform in repeat high-speed, high-heat, pursuit conditions. The Fleet Performance pad can safely stop vehicles from high speeds and will continue to work at very high temperatures. Centric Fleet Performance brake pads include all necessary hardware for complete installation.*
*Hardware included where applicable.
Heavy Duty Brake Shoes

Innovation Through Superior Design
Centric Parts' research and engineering team recognized an issue with leaking bleeder screws on a popular caliper application. The original brass insert design did not allow the bleeder screw to seat deep enough in the caliper body so it was re-designed allowing proper sealing and eliminating issues caused by leaking.
Medium Duty Brake Hydraulics
Centric Parts Medium Duty Brake Master Cylinders match original equipment parts in quality, configuration and fitment. Cylinders are complete with reservoirs, switches, and floats and are offered with the original aluminum casting body design where applicable. Centric hydraulic components are manufactured under the highest quality standards by OEM and OES manufacturers. Centric Parts Medium Duty Wheel Cylinders follow the same formula: OE replacement and quality, including inserted brass insert and aluminum castings where applicable
