Wagner® Brake Dramatically Expanding Premium E-Shield™ Brake Rotor Coverage
Timesaving, Corrosion-Resistant Rotors Soon to be Available for Approximately 95 Percent of Brand’s Rotor Sales
Southfield, Mich., Feb. 24, 2016… Wagner®, the global leader in braking innovation, is dramatically expanding its offering of premium replacement brake rotors featuring E-Shield™ protective coating technology, which prevents unsightly corrosion and related complaints commonly associated with uncoated parts. Wagner premium brake rotors are manufactured and marketed for vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket by Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML).
The company recently expanded the Wagner E-Shield premium rotor line to more than 450 part numbers, which should place coverage at approximately 95 percent of target market coverage.
Wagner packages each premium rotor in a special Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) bag to help prevent environmental contamination and eliminate the need for additional surface prep prior to installation. In addition, when necessary, Wagner premium brake rotors feature precision mill balance technology to prevent common performance issues caused by improper balance. Each rotor’s micro finish aids in proper seating of the friction material, reducing pad break-in time.
“Wagner premium E-Shield rotors solve the problem of unsightly rust on the visible non-braking surfaces and help the service provider save time on the repair.”
“Corrosion issues and associated consumer complaints, combined with the performance issues associated with lower quality parts, have caused many service providers to re-evaluate their choice of rotor supplier,” said Rick Dziobak, product manager, brake products, North America, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “Wagner premium E-Shield rotors solve the problem of unsightly rust on the visible non-braking surfaces and help the service provider save time on the repair.”
