VGX Brake Pads Series

VGX Brake Pads are all North American made, manufactured and packaged in our own brake plant located in Cambridge Ontario. The materials and components are North American made as well. This hands-on quality results in a clean, quiet brake pad that has reliable performance and a great pedal feel on passenger car and light truck applications. The Brake Pad program includes Premium Ceramic, Premium Semi-Metallic and Severe Duty formulations. VGX Brake Pads are proven to deliver industry-leading performance and wear characteristics and are competitively priced.

VGX Brake Pad Clamshell Kits – Best Value

VGX Platinum Ceramic—VGX Stealth Semi-Metallic

The VGX Kit is the right choice for a correct brake system repair to restore the system to a “like new” condition. It comes with complete hardware and lube that prevent unnecessary comebacks due to system issues often unrelated to the friction. The hardware is the Industry’s first and best noise abatement hardware. The premium high temp lubrication is proportioned for an individual brake service. All components of these kits are clearly visible because they are shrink-wrapped on protective backer-board before being slid inside the informative graphic box.

“Next to doing the right thing, the most important thing is to let people (your customers)
know you are doing the right thing” — John D. Rockefeller

Brake Rotors/Drums

VGX Platinum Brake Rotor Series

VGX Platinum Rotors meet and exceed the performance of the original equipment rotors. These rotors have more carbon content, painted hubs, and a new dry-oil protection coating. The new Carbon+ Rotor now services the vehicle even better, with optimal thermal conductivity, and a higher resistance to distortion and thermal cracking. The improved dry-oil protection coating protects even longer against corrosion. Dipped and not sprayed, the dry-oil finish protects on both vented and non-vented rotors. This dry film does not need to be cleaned off the rotor at installation – it is “ready to go” out of the box.

All VGX Platinum Rotors are engineered to withstand the service duty requirements of high energy stopping that emergency vehicles demand. They provide best-in-class performance coupled with quiet operation and long life. Used with VGX disc pads, this combination will exceed the expectations and demands of all customer unique vehicle service requirements without sacrificing every day braking comfort.

Quality & Safety

Our precise research and development process assures you are buying a rotor that meets or exceeds the original in performance. All our products are objectively tested by accredited independent laboratories:
Link Engineering Labs – Conformity Assessment Certification and Greening Labs.

  • SAE J2928 – Tests for stability during high heat braking conditions
  • SAE J2933 – Modal test to assure quiet operation
  • SAE J431 – Verifies material composition and properties (stability and strength)

Performance Plus Rotors & Drums

Performance Plus products are globally manufactured under strict ISO standards and meets SAE J431 standards. Although priced as an economy rotor, Performance Plus drums and rotors are 100% inspected for accuracy of bolt holes, center holes, TIR (Total Indicated Run-Out), thickness, diameter and weight. The bottom line – Performance Plus drums and rotors meet or exceed all original equipment standards. Performance Plus rotors cover over 98% vehicles in operation (VIO) for all cars and light trucks on the road today.

Cabin Air Filters

Cabin air filters are the fastest growing repair segment with over 40 million vehicles in North America that now require cabin air filter replacement. CAF are a great revenue driver, a low inventory investment and require minimal space to stock. They also provide …

A cabin air filter is a fundamental part of a vehicle’s passenger compartment defrost, heating and cooling systems. Cabin filters function like the furnace filter in a home by filtering out the impurities and pollutants that flow in from the outside. As the filter media becomes saturated with impurities, airflow through the media is restricted. Studies have found that air quality inside a vehicle can be up to six times worse than the quality of air outside the vehicle. Instincts to keep the windows rolled up only complicate the situation by trapping harmful fumes and particles inside the cabin.

Like other maintenance products, they have a scheduled service requirement. Depending on the type
of filter, recommended replacement intervals can range from once a year or every 15,000 miles up to 3 years
or 30,000 miles.

Cabin Air Filters are designed to:

  • Improve the performance of the vehicle’s air conditioning, heating
    and defrost systems while improving the airflow in the interior cabin space
  • Keep pollen, spores, road dust and soot from getting inside your vehicle
  • Help keep the interior of your vehicle clean
  • Reduce the amount of contaminants entering your lungs
