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.

Tests:

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

Parameters

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
