Therefore, the product range of Ferdinand Bilstein in the field of braking systems consists exclusively of OE matching quality articles. The wide assortment ranges from brake pads and discs to brake hoses and wheel cylinders.
Safety has always top priority: The certified quality management of Ferdinand Bilstein tests the offered brake components for various requirements and loads. In this way, we are an active contribution to road safety.
Thus, brake discs must be uncompromisingly safe and durable to ensure a 100% braking effect under all driving conditions. This is why brake discs are exactly manufactured by Ferdinand Bilstein.
Compliance with production tolerances is self-evident in production. This is the only way to ensure optimum braking effect. The material of the brake discs is geared towards a balance of performance, driving comfort and longevity. The wide range of high-quality brake discs from Ferdinand Bilstein also includes those with ventilation and coated surfaces.
Brake pads from Ferdinand Bilstein have reduced bedding in period thanks to brake pads being scorched.
Through "scorching" an immediate braking performance is already ensured during production. In this method, the surface of the brake pads is heated to 650° C. under high pressure, so that the uncured components (residual gases) are eliminated. Without scorching, there is a risk that the brake linings will overheat during heavy loads and lose their braking effect.
To ensure consistent quality, all brake pads are certified by Ferdinand Bilstein according to ECE R-90, a procedure mandatory in the EU, in which the braking performance of brake pads is tested. This creates trust and makes low-quality cheap imports easy to recognise.
