2013 saw Comline Auto Parts further augment their range of brake pads and discs by introducing 168 new part numbers, with applications ranging from the Mercedes S-Class and Porsche Cayenne to the Hyundai ix35 and Alfa Romeo MiTo. 2014 will see Comline further develop this friction range and the company’s product development team already has over 150 part numbers in the pipeline for future release throughout the course of the year.
Comline has quickly established itself as one of the leading aftermarket friction brands and its pad and disc offerings have undoubtedly been a linchpin of the company’s overall growth and success. Comline is very much ‘master of its own destiny’ as a brand that manufactures brake pads within its own facilities. It does so with a very clear focus on providing the highest quality at competitive pricing, an ethos that has seen the brand become well established in markets right across Europe.
Comline’s very own production and testing facilities guarantee that only the finest brake pad products make it into a Comline box. Strict dynamometer testing is employed to ensure brake pad performance whilst an innovative RMR (Rubber-Metal-Rubber) shim is utilised on numerous applications to help minimise noise and eradicate squeal. The result of this development and testing is a range of over 1200 ‘E’certified brake pads – one of the biggest ranges in the world and one which continues to grow apace.
The foundry commissioned by Comline for brake disc manufacture also employs equally comprehensive quality procedures. This begins with a material inspection test to check hardness and tensile strength. In-process testing occurs throughout the production process culminating in a 100% dyno balance test to guarantee manufacturing excellence.
Together, Comline brake pads and discs provide a truly high-performance braking solution and, with wide-ranging applications across the Japanese, Korean and European car park, it’s easy to see why the brand is continuing to gain traction in the marketplace and has established itself as a real force in the friction category.
