Blue Print offers comprehensive braking solution

Tuesday, October 01, 2019

With over 7000 individual braking components in its range, parts supplier Blue Print can offer garages a complete and integrated brake servicing and repair solution, across all makes and models.

The range includes; Blue Print brake discs, pads, shoes, callipers, wheel cylinders, brake master cylinders, ABS sensors and much more. All parts are designed and manufactured to match or exceed OE specifications and in accordance with ECE-R90 regulations. The quality is also reflected in a Three Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty against manufacturing defects.

Brake discs are wear components that require replacement periodically meaning component quality is vital. However, Blue Print says that to be competitive, some other suppliers cut their production and distribution costs by reducing the quantity and quality of materials used during manufacture. Reduced weight can affect the discs ability to dissipate heat, which can have a detrimental effect on the efficiency of the brakes. This can lead to issues such as brake judder, often caused by Disc Thickness Variation. This is commonly misdiagnosed as a ‘warped’ discs. This occurs when the brake disc becomes worn in a single area of the disc's surface and is often caused by excessive run-out.

Common signs of failure are noisy brakes, where screeching, scraping or squeaking sounds can be heard. Increased stopping distances and vibrations from the brakes are other signs of wear.

When replacing, disc quality is crucial and Blue Print discs have enhanced quality with anti-corrosion paint applied, ensuring long-lasting performance, as well as being balanced to minimise resonance and torsional vibration. Blue Print also test their Brake Discs with salt spray to ensure excellent corrosion resistance.

Blue Print brake discs are always in demand and the company has highlighted some particular part numbers where demand is especially strong at present:

Part Number:ADW194338. OE Ref: 13514612, for Opel Astra (2015<). 21 applications.

Part Number: ADV184393. OE Ref: 4H0 615 601 L, for Audi A6 (4G), A7 (4G), A8 (4H), S6 (4G), S7 (4G), S8 (4H). 178 applications.

Part Number: ADJ134372. OE Ref: LR090699  for Land Rover Discovery Sport (2014<), Range Rover Velar (2017<). 15 applications.

Part Number: ADG043234. OE Ref: 51712-G6300, KIA Picanto (2017<). 5 applications.
