FERODO disc brake pads have been selected as original equipment (OE) for the latest generation of one of Europe’s best-selling passenger car models – 2020 Volkswagen Golf VIII hatchbacks.
The latest FERODO OE brake pads are engineered and tested to provide powerful, precise, quiet stopping performance and long pad and disc life under a full range of operating conditions.
FERODO will soon extend this OE expertise to the replacement market with the introduction of Eco-Friction brake pads for the Golf VIII.
Eco-Friction technology features low- to zero-copper formulations that reduce heavy metals and emissions – resulting in pads that are green, safe and which provide outstanding stopping performance.
FERODO conducts up to a full year of testing to validate each new friction formulation in nine key performance areas: pressure, speed and temperature sensitivity; light and heavy fade; thermal conductivity; judder; noise; and pad and disc life.
Silvano Veglia, director of product management at FERODO, DRiV Incorporated said: “Vehicle manufacturers recognize that FERODO brake pads contribute to a superior driving experience through outstanding stopping performance, safety and reliability.
“At the same time, our status as a leading OE supplier – combined with full in-house production, a history continuous innovation and our extensive technical support capabilities – make FERODO the right choice for brake pad replacement throughout the life of a vehicle.”
