  • It sends customers exactly the right message for today’s economic climate: Apec = unbeatable value and peace of mind.

 

Consistent quality

Auto Fast Fit use Apec as their discs are precision made to match the high standards and consistent braking characteristics provided by Apec brake pads. So when replacing worn discs with new Apec discs, be sure to fit Apec pads for optimum matched braking performance.

 

Precision manufactured
Apec discs are produced to fine tolerances and exacting specifications, for uniform thickness and hardness, and easy fitting. Using only high quality materials ensures that Apec discs effectively withstand constant heating and cooling, and are highly resistant to warping.

 

Made for today’s roads and vehicles
Apec brake discs are available across a wide range that not only includes modern cars and LCVs, but also older vehicles from the 1960s onwards, please contact Auto Fast fit for availability.

 

For optimum braking performance, we recommend you also fit new Apec pads when fitting new Apec discs. When Apec discs and pads are fitted together as a matching axle set, they are covered by our Apec 2Y24K guarantee.

 

Detailed evaluation

Apec brake discs are produced in modern factories to exacting performance standards that ensure they are direct replacements for OE parts. They are tested to homologation protocols, which cover not only braking performance over a range of temperatures and pressures, but also disc integrity, thermal cracking and DTV (disc thickness variation).

 

AUTO FAST FIT - APEC TECHNICAL BULLETIN - 25TH JUNE 2014.

When replacing shoes for the EPB on Landrover Discovery it is essential that the
correct procedure is followed to ensure correct actuation. Failure to do this could
result in premature lockup and expensive component failure. Bedding in of the
shoes is paramount.
Below you will find a brief outline of the procedure for bedding in to ensure correct
calibration of the EPB Module.

You need to bed in the EPB shoes either when you have changed the EPB
shoes or you have changed the rear discs.
With the Engine running, press the brake pedal fully on and off 3 times. On the
third press, hold the brake pedal down.
With the brake pedal still in the down position, pull the EPB switch upwards 4
times and then downwards 3 times. This must be completed within 10 seconds.
Your dash display will then show ‘Park Brake Bedding Cycle Active’ or
something similar. If it hasn’t, then release the brake pedal and try again.
You need to ensure that you are on a clear piece of road or land as this
procedure needs to be completed 10 times.
Drive at least 19mph and maximum of 29mph and then apply the EPB switch
until you stop. You then need to wait for 60 seconds or drive for 1 mile (to allow
the brakes to cool down) before repeating the process. If you stop the engine or
you drive over 30 MPH, the bedding in process will be cancelled. At the end of
the 10th time, the bedding in mode will automatically finish.

BRAKE PADS

Apec is Auto Fast Fits's main  Brake Pads supplier.

Apec offers the most advanced, comprehensively tested and environmentally friendly brake pads for the aftermarket. Over 18 million Apec brake pads are produced every year, to cover 99% of all cars and LCVs in the UK and Ireland. This includes not only modern cars, but also older vehicles from the 1960s onwards, contact Auto Fast Fit for more details.

Unique production process

All apec brake pads are made from the latest generation friction materials and benefit from a unique High Pressure Treatment (HPT) scorching process, for:

  • superior initial performance and easier bedding-in
  • longer working life
  • optimum safety and comfort.

Dependable quality
All Apec brake pads are precision-made in Europe, using advanced robotic technology for constant accuracy and easy first-time fitting. The manufacturing process includes the friction material, back plate and shims, ensuring consistent high quality. Pads then undergo rigorous and extensive testing.

For optimum braking performance, we recommend you also fit new Apec discs when fitting new Apec pads. When Apec pads and discs are fitted together as a matching axle set, they are covered by our Apec 2Y24K guarantee.

 

Rigorous and comprehensive

Apec pads are subjected to tough tests to make sure they meet our exacting criteria for outstanding performance, comfort and safety. Testing takes place in laboratories, on test tracks and mountain roads.

Laboratory and track testing
Pads undergo extended dynamometer tests, to simulate continual everyday and extreme driving. On the test track, the pads are installed in a variety of cars and repeatedly subjected to high speed braking, and aggressive stop-start city driving.

Mountain road testing
Again using different types of car, the pads are tested during average speed and high speed descents of the demanding Glossglockner Alpine pass, which falls with an average 12% gradient from 2571m, over 16km.

Despite minimal time allowed for the descent, the pads must not exceed strict limits for their final temperatures and must still demonstrate safe stopping ability at the end of the Pass.

Beyond required standards
Apec brake pads are subjected to, and pass, tests which are often considerably more demanding than the R90 and R13 standards set by the international motor industry.

 

Better for the environment

Apec Braking is naturally concerned about safeguarding the environment. Apec brake pads make a positive contribution through the HPT manufacturing process.

With HPT, harmful gases that are normally released into the atmosphere during the bedding-in stage while driving, are contained and treated in the laboratory. Thorough air filtering and scrubbing means all the harmful gases are neutralised, making the process safe and eco-friendly.

Apec friction material also exceeds EU regulations, by completely eliminating heavy metals such as lead, copper and antimony.
