Galfer obtains ECE R90 certification for its brake pads
The brake components brand, Galfer, has received the prestigious R90 certification for its motorcycle brake pads, which certifies that their quality and effectiveness is equal or superior to that of the original motorcycle parts.
What constitutes ECE R90 certification?
The ECE R90 regulation stipulates that all replacement brake pads must meet a set of requirements and pass rigorous tests that compare their braking performance with original pads in approved motorcycles. The certification not only approves the product, but also certifies that the production processes at the Galfer factory have a high standard of quality, safety and product traceability.
How are they identified?
The brake pads and packaging are marked with “ECE R90”, the approval number, and a country code in a circle, which corresponds to the location of the certifying body, i.e. E9 for Spain.
What are the advantages of certification?
ECE R90 certification serves as a quality filter among the current brake pads on the market and is a guarantee of safety for users. GALFER offers over 500 different brake pads in its motorcycle catalogue, all of them now with ECE R90 certification for their various semi-metallic and sintered compounds.
ECE R90 certification is a seal of quality and is recognised and approved worldwide.
GALFER adds this new European R90 certification for its brake pads to the German TÜV KBA certification it already has for its Disc Wave® brake discs.
