Friction Ready Calipers (FRC)

Raybestos® Friction Ready Calipers (FRC)

The Raybestos Friction Ready Calipers (FRC) calipers are engineered to deliver a safe, leak-free performance.

Offering one of the most complete application coverages on the market, Our FRC calipers:

  • Come friction-ready, giving you the freedom to customize the friction for each caliper
  • Are made using remanufactured materials
  • Function and fit like OE calipers

FRC calipers undergo extensive testing and inspections to ensure they meet high standards and deliver a trouble-free installation.

To guarantee a leak-free operation, the following parts are replaced with new materials:

  • Seals
  • Boots
  • Bleeder screws
  • O-rings
  • EPDM70 rubber components for superior heat resistance, performance and durability
  • Vehicle-specific designs
  • Materials matching OE specifications
  • Pre-lubricated guide pins
  • 100 percent pressure tested
  • Brackets included where applicable
  • Silicon boots for heavy-duty applications

Raybestos works tirelessly to ensure our calipers are tested to the highest multinational industry standards.


Our calipers are put through extensive testing to ensure you are receiving the highest quality product, including:

  • SAE J1603 – Rubber components and seals performance and testing
  • JASO C446 – Caliper assembly performance testing
  • SAE J1713 – Recommended practices for strength and fatigue life of calipers
  • ASTM B117 – Humidity and salt spray corrosion resistance


Testing parameters include:

  • High and low pressure leak testing
  • Extreme pressure strength and leak testing
  • Cyclic durability under extreme temperatures
  • Piston retraction, fluid displacement and residual drag torque
  • Humidity and salt spray testing for corrosion resistance
  • Rubber aging and degradation resistance
  • OE-matched (or better) performance testing
