Meritor receives ECE certification for brake discs

Meritor's European Aftermarket business has received ECE R90 certification for the brand's AllFit brake discs. The certification was issued by the Vehicle Certification Agency (VCA), the UK's leading certification body.

“Passing this certification is a testament to the performance and durability of our Meritor AllFit brake disc family,” said Michael Boe, Managing Director, Aftermarket Europe, Meritor. “These parts have similar performance attributes as original equipment parts and are put through rigorous tests to meet high standards.”

According to the VCA, all parts tested are evaluated for geometry, material specifications, wear condition, service brake vehicle performance, comparison with dynamic frictional properties of the original part and high load and thermal fatigue integrity tests.

Each disc was tested using R90-approved MDP3000 pads and met each requirement. Testing included 15 or more cycles without damage or failure for thermal fatigue, 500 cycles without failure for R90 high strength test, and 10 cycles testing for surface cracks up to 2/3 radial width of the friction surface.
