TEST N°6 WET BRAKE STOPPING PERFORMANCE

Download PDF

Driving becomes more dangerous when it’s wet. Not only is the road surface more slippery, but brakes are also less efficient. High quality friction material in brake pads is critical to maintaining maximum stopping power at all times.

COMPREHENSIVE TESTING DEMONSTRATES OUR PROMISE

At Ferodo®, we carry out regular competitor tests to see how we compare with other brands. Each test reviews different qualities, such as dry stopping distance, wading troughs, emergency stop, handbrake testing, and noise, pedal feel and durability. Time after time, the results support our strong reputation and demonstrate the ‘You’re in control’ promise we give to you and your customers.

FERODO®ADDS A WET BRAKING PERFORMANCE TEST

As wet conditions are particularly challenging, we have now introduced a sixth test to prove the wet braking performance of Ferodo®pads compared to a range of competitors products of varying levels of quality.

WET BRAKING CHALLENGE PROVES STOPPING POWER

Water was sprayed directly on to the brake disc, as well as on to the road surface, to create the most realistic and consistent wet conditions for every brake setup. Each product was tested with 6 brake applications from 80 kmph to 0 kmph.

THE RESULTS

The results confirm Ferodo®’s superior original equipment (OE) quality, with a minimum reduction of friction level and reliable high performance in wet conditions. We are proud to bring you one of the best wet braking performances - keeping you in control whatever the weather.
