Fras-le has new E-catalog for disc brake pads

News Jason Cannon April 1, 2013

In a partnership with Illumaware LLC, Fras-le North America has launched a new electronic catalog for its line of hydraulic and air disc brake pads.

The site, powered by MyCarParts – Illumaware’s online software tool – houses data in Fras-le’s electronic catalog, which is now compliant with the latest AAIA ACES and PIES standards.

The catalog went live earlier this month.

“This new, user friendly, electronic catalog provides our customers with accurate data, validated each month by the latest AAIA standards. With MyCarParts, I have the ability to update our interchange database, instantly,” Rafael Di Buono, Fras-le North America’s product manager, says. “Putting current and comprehensive interchange data into the hands of a WD, counterperson or technician makes this eCat a very powerful tool.”

The catalog contains more than 340 part numbers, representing more than 150 FMSI D-Plates, and covers more than 3,600 Class 1C-8 vehicles.

Data can be queried by part number or by make, model and year. The catalog features detailed brake pad illustrations with dimensions of the backing plate, the thickness of the friction material, as well as chamfers and slots. Also listed in the catalog are interchange data, material quality and an application buyer’s guide for each part number.

Fras-le’s disc pad line consists of premium semi-metallic and ceramic friction materials for Class 1c-8 work trucks.
