Wagner Launches OEx Brake Pads for US Passenger Cars

Wagner Launches OEx Brake Pads For US Passenger Cars

This new line contains more than 100 SKUs and covers greater than 90% of passenger car vehicles 2005 and newer, or more than 150,000,000 domestic, European and Asian vehicles in operation in North America, according to the company.

Following the success of the Wagner OEX brake-pad line for SUVs, crossovers and pickup trucks, Wagner recently launched the Wagner OEX Car, specifically designed for passenger vehicles. 

The new line contains more than 100 SKUs and covers greater than 90% of passenger-car vehicles 2005 and newer, or more than 150,000,000 domestic, European and Asian vehicles in operation in North America, according to the company.

Wagner OEX Car is the latest offering to join the Wagner portfolio of premium brake pads, rotors, hardware and fluids. 

Wagner OECar is engineered with a combination of advanced braking features. Galvanized-steel plates provide better corrosion resistance and fitment over paint and powder coatings, which increases pad life and aids in noise-reduction. Additionally, the treated backing plate inhibits rust jacking and provides better bonding to the plate. 

New features also include the introduction of premium OE-quality shims that are made up of five sound-deadening layers to lessen noise and vibration, and laser-etched for easy part reference. These shims are attached using secure application-specific shim attachment methods: locking tabs provide a secure attachment to the plate, while the riveted method keeps the shim in place by locking the shim to the backing plate.  Both methods are optimized for quiet operation. 

Wagner OEX Car also offers customized slot design, application-specific, double- or single-curved slots in the Wagner OEX Car pads. This provides more opportunities for dirt and debris to escape the pad, resulting in longer pad life. Additionally, formulations meet 2025 requirements for zero copper.

“With the rollout of Wagner OEX Car, we are excited to have this new, innovative product line that further enhances the proven Wagner portfolio.  Wagner covers a vast number of VIO and offers features that customers demand for their vehicles today,” said Sarah Olson, product management director, Braking, Americas.  “Wagner OEX Car, with its unique features, not only provides outstanding stopping power, but also a quieter, smoother ride.” 

Additionally, Wagner OECar will feature new packaging, distinguishing it from Wagner OEX by clearly defining that the product is intended for passenger cars.
