But also, all-in-one quality thanks to industry-leading brake pad features
Valeo OptiPACK™ brings years of braking expertise and European-made quality to the commercial vehicle brake aftermarket. Surpassing ECE R90 certification, OptiPACK™ brake pads feature a steel back plate for perfect caliper fitting and ease of identification and traceability.
A metal net system prevents shearing, regardless of operating and heat conditions, and an adhesive layer ensures a strong bond with the friction material on the back plate.
An insulation underlay provides high thermal efficiency and heat dissipation, and the high-quality friction material delivers reliable, consistent brake performance.
