Comprehensive Coverage Across The Range!

Borg & Beck, the renowned global supplier of premium quality replacement components for both the automotive and commercial vehicle (CV) sectors, has increased its CV product offering by introducing Brake Pads to its extensive Braking programme.

The range consists of over 35 references providing comprehensive coverage of the UK CV parc. As would be expected with its original equipment (OE) pedigree and impressive 100-year plus history of engineering excellence, Borg & Beck CV Brake Pads are manufactured to incorporate a fine semi metallic organic formulation into the friction element, which delivers excellent performance and durability characteristics that ably cater for the considerable safety demands of the modern truck.

However, in keeping with the company’s safety-first policies, the range also includes an eight-strong HD contingent for those high demand applications, which uses a low metallic organic formulation, to provide a compound suitable for vehicles such as buses and coaches, that have to deal with multiple starts and stops during their normal operation. This material offers greater wear resistance and remains effective at high temperatures without fade, making it the ideal solution for a host of demanding applications.

These two formulations have been developed in association with the company’s experienced CV product team and its ISO TS16949 accredited manufacturing partners, a combination that allows Borg & Beck to ensure it delivers a premium quality component that conforms to the stringent specifications necessary to provide the very best in terms of performance and durability. In addition, all Borg & Beck Brake Pad sets are supplied as standard with the required fitting accessories, where necessary, for a complete and efficient installation.

Naturally, the entire offering is ECE R90 certified, but as a demonstration of the company’s attention to detail and customer focused attitude, the pads also include bedding-in strips to ensure that drivers can rely on their excellent performance from the moment they are installed.

This welcome addition alongside its existing 125 strong Brake Drum and 135 Brake Disc offerings, is further complemented with a full range of Wear Leads. Borg & Beck now enables workshops to source all their Braking requirements from a single source, which provides a greater level of peace of mind. The full range can be viewed online at, the company’s parts catalogue contains competitor and OE cross reference information to ensure the correct replacement is located with minimum fuss.

Marry these benefits with a powerful brand name, robust product packaging and a highly competitive 24-month, unlimited mileage warranty against manufacturing defects and the complete Borg & Beck CV Braking programme makes a very compelling option for the independent sector.

As testament to the quality of the Borg & Beck CV Braking programme, Cole Trucksport, a division 2 British Truck racing team, have fitted Borg & Beck Pads and Discs to their truck, which have stood up to the endurance of a full weekend of racing. After the first race of the season Simon Cole, AKA Big Rev from Cole Trucksport has this to say “What an awesome Brake set-up! we haven’t changed a Pad or Disc all weekend. We actually lost water cooling on the Discs during testing due to a water injector failing, however they were still perfectly fine, even after getting extremely hot and still went onto complete the weekend.

We are also extremely pleased with the Borg & Beck Brake Pads as until now we have never completed a weekend on one set of pads and without deglazing a single set.” You can read the full testimonial and follow the team at
