Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp. has debuted a line of Wagner premium replacement brake pads that help consumers stop up to 50 feet sooner when driving light trucks, sport utility vehicles and crossovers.
Wagner OEX brake pads offer an array of additional benefits, including reduced rotor wear and dusting, and up to two times longer pad life. Engineered and manufactured in the U.S., these new brake pads can be seen during next week’s Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
Wagner OEX brake pads are manufactured and marketed by Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp. and a premier supplier of brake products to several of the world’s leading vehicle manufacturers.
“Wagner once again sets a new benchmark for innovation and braking effectiveness with revolutionary Wagner OEX brake pads,” says Bill Nunnery, vice president, business development and product management, Global Aftermarket, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “In the hyper-competitive aftermarket brake arena, we are proud to offer this innovative new technology which can stop pickups, SUVs and CUVs up to 50 feet sooner. We believe this impressive performance provides a considerable safety advantage for motorists.”
Wagner went to extensive lengths – including testing conducted by an independent third-party – to validate the stopping performance advantages of Wagner OEX pads versus competitor pads.
The Wagner OEX line includes 114 custom-shaped, application-specific pad designs covering 95% of utility-focused passenger vehicles registered in North America. These unique pad shapes, combined with precisely engineered slots and cuts, improve performance by increasing turbulent airflow, allowing for cooler operation and improved stopping power. These characteristics are particularly important on light trucks, SUVs and CUVs – North America’s fastest growing vehicle segments – which often encounter a wider range of loads and other, more challenging operating conditions.
