RPT Rust Prevention Technology™

Raybestos® RPT Rust Prevention Technology™

Raybestos® RPT Rust Prevention Technology™ plated brake caliper is engineered to face the toughest weather conditions. Our proprietary zinc electroplating process helps prevent rust and provides protection for all kinds of weather.

Our plated brake calipers maintain their high-quality appearance throughout their service life, delivering continued functionality and an extended service life.

RPT Rust Prevention Technology™ calipers include:

  • OE-matched design and specifications
  • EPDM70 rubber components for superior heat resistance, performance and durability
  • Silicon boots to match or improve OE design where applicable. 
  • Zinc electroplating on all cast iron housings and brackets for all-weather protection
  • Brackets included where applicable
  • Pre-lubricated guide pins
  • Surface finish to closely resemble OE

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
