The NAPA PROFORMER braking range features over 1300 active parts and covers over 90% of the UK car parc.

All parts in range have been designed, manufactured and tested to be a direct replacement for OE and are Regulation 90 approved.

NAPA PROFMER brake discs are partially coated to improve braking performance while the pad range features directional pads to improve braking performance.

Why Replace?

There are a number of factors that will affect the lifespan such as usage, directional replacement, whether the pads and discs have been replaced in pairs and also whether the brakes have been bedded in properly.

As they are a safety critical element of any vehicle, they should be replaced as soon as their performance starts to diminish.

  • Aggressive Braking
    • Overloading the vehicle, such as towing will reduce brake life.
  • Directional Replacement
    • Vehicle manufacturers have designed brake pads that must be fitted directionally for numerous applications. At NAPA, we offer brake pads that match OE standards and specifications.
    • Failure to fit them correctly could result in noise and poor performance.
    • If an arrow is on the pad, it should always face in the direction the disc rotates.
  • Replacing Pads & Discs in Pairs
    • If pads and discs are not replaced in pairs there will not be balance between the wheels resulting in overall poor performance and increased stress parts.
  • Bedding in Brake Pads
    • Bedding in braking pads helps transfer an even layer of brake pad material onto the disc, which ensures smoother brake operation and improved performance

All NAPA PROFORMER brake pads and discs are designed to last 25 Months or 25,000 miles whichever comes first.
