Mechanics Insist on Euro+™

Mechanics agree Euro+™ brake pads from Bendix are the superior brake pad to supply and fit in European vehicles. Bendix is a long time supplier to the world’s OE manufacturers and has lead the field of innovation for many years. With this level of heritage, we understand the technology required to meet the exacting standards of premium manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi and Volkswagen to name a few. Euro+™ brake pads from Bendix include all clips, pads, shims and sensors, where contained in OE equivalents so you can be assured that all components are the exact fit every time.

Meets Strict European Regulations

The ECE Regulation 90 specifies the design, construction, and performance requirements and test protocols for strict European regulations. ECE R90 calls for brake pads to be tested for braking capabilities, speed sensitivity, cold performance, and may only deviate from the frictional characteristics of their original equipment counterparts by no more than 15%. When you fit Euro+™ brake pads they meet ECE Regulation 90, which means you are fitting quality brake pads specifically designed for European vehicles and engineered for optimum performance, braking synergy and driving comfort.

Bendix Blue Titanium Stripe

The new Bendix Blue Titanium Stripe is another improvement in brake technology developed by the Bendix engineer. The Blue Titanium Stripe adds a new level of stopping power straight out of the box. The original Titanium Stripe eliminated the need for bedding-in Bendix brakes saving you time and money, now the new Blue Titanium Stripe goes even further, lasting longer and creating the ideal brake pad and rotor surface to give better braking performance right after fitting.

Brake Wear Indicator

Using the Bendix Brake Wear Indicator, it’s now easy to see when to change brake pads, and your customers will appreciate the definitive evidence that replacement is necessary.

Proven Stopping Power Reduces Braking Distances

Bendix is the only OE supplier to provide the innovative technology and quality required to produce Euro+™ brake pads. These brake pads incorporate outstanding characteristics that result in consistently safe and quiet braking and long running performance without fading.

As shown below (fig. 1), Euro+™ from Bendix delivers dramatically improved stopping distances over European OE brake pads & European dustless brake pads.

Stable Friction Means Smoother Braking

Braking stability is an important consideration when selecting brake pads for your customers. As a driver, having smooth and predictable pedal feel under braking application is critical to a safe and enjoyable journey.

Euro+™ brake pads deliver a consistent braking experience at all speeds and in both cold and hot temperatures.

Bendix achieves this with its advanced friction material formulations, which are extensively tested in the laboratory and on the test track.

During development, Bendix uses the international dyno test SAEJ2522 (AK Master test), which subjects and evaluates the Euro+™ brake pads to a wide range of operating speeds, pressures and temperatures.

Included in the evaluation is a High Speed test that evaluates friction levels at higher vehicle speeds (160 km/h) and demonstrates the stability of the material compared to the nominal mu level.

From these trials the pads’ Nominal Friction Value is attained – it’s a measure of the average friction across all the test sections.

The graphs below demonstrate the superior stability of the Euro+™ pad range compared to OE counterparts, including at high speeds where they deliver more stable friction (fig. 2).

Tests Prove Rims Stay Cleaner with Euro+™ From Bendix

Less Dust For Cleaner, Brighter Wheels

In order to obtain objective proof of the relative cleanliness of a wheel, laboratory tests were carried out on a brake test stand, under consistently clean laboratory conditions, and a practical road test in traffic with all its incidental side effects.

A standard brake pad was used as the counterpart to Euro+™ from Bendix and the aluminium wheels were fresh from the factory. The practical road test, which was carried out under dry conditions, lasted approximately 1 month and was run over a distance of 1,560 km. While the laboratory test, as carried out under controlled conditions, was conducted over 2 days.

The tests comprised of a driving profile of braking movements seen while driving in town, country roads and highways, in a mix that was as close to real usage.

The tests carried out that measured the wheel’s level of blackening using a chromameter, were impressive as they were objective. Compared to standard brake pads, Euro+™ brake pads from Bendix produced significantly less dust (fig. 3).

Ceramic Compound Minimises Noise & Wear

Euro+™ brake pads from Bendix deliver exceptional, smoother and quieter braking for European vehicles. Made from of an entirely new material that includes ceramic compounds and excludes any abrasive metal particles, producing a virtually dust-free brake pad.

Euro+™ brake pad technology includes engineered chamfers and slots together with a back plate that is protected by a shim - absorbing noises generated during braking. As a result, Euro+™ brake pads from Bendix offer optimum comfort.

Euro+™ brake pads from Bendix minimise noise development during braking so well that they have been established as the quietest pad on the market from the tests in line with SAE J2521.

As shown below (fig. 4), extensive laboratory and practical tests revealed a significant reduction in the wear of the pad and brake disc.
