MCHENRY, Illinois – Raybestos has added Opti-Cal calipers to its family of premium-quality brake system products.
The new caliper line features all-new components and requires no core return, according to the company.
Raybestos Opti-Cal calipers are manufactured with a new caliper body, brackets and components, including pistons, lubricated guide pins and pad mounting hardware, to ensure they fit and function correctly.
Aluminum or zinc plated castings deliver superior corrosion prevention, and the zinc finish provides all-weather protection, inhibits rust and maintains a pristine appearance, according to Raybestos.
“We’ve optimized our renowned engineering expertise to research, develop and extensively test our Opti-Cal line and we are excited to introduce these game-changing calipers to the auto care industry,” said Kristin Grons, marketing manager at Brake Parts Inc. “Unlike traditional calipers, Opti-Cal requires no core return, so repair shops will never have to deal with a jumble of old cores taking up valuable shelf space. Premium-quality Opti-Cal new brake calipers meet or exceed OE design and performance and solve core issues throughout the channel.”
All Opti-Cal calipers undergo significant levels of testing to ensure adherence to global industry standards such as SAE J1603, JASO C448, QC/T 592-2013 and ASTM B117. The calipers undergo temperature durability testing, leak-free pressure testing, functionality testing and environment-exposure testing to guarantee trouble-free operation, proper braking function and the best possible performance.
