New 2017 Wagner® Brake Catalog Now Available

Catalog features new Wagner OEX Pads, new premium E-Shield rotors, and more

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., Feb. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wagner, the global leader in braking innovation from Federal-Mogul Motorparts has recently launched its updated 2017 printed catalog (WC101), replacing the 2012 catalog and containing thousands of new parts, and new lines.  

New to the catalog for 2017 is the full line of Wagner OEbrake pads, engineered for the fastest growing market segment: pickups, SUVs and CUVs.  The Wagner OEX offering includes custom-shaped, application-specific pad designs covering 98 percent of these vehicles. The pads’ patent-pending shape and slot design create turbulent airflow, which allows for cooler operation and superior stopping power. In addition, Wagner OEbrake pads can stop pickups, SUVs and CUVs up to 50 feet sooner than other leading pads1, last up to two times longer2, generate less dusting, reduce rotor wear and offer consistent performance in all braking conditions.

Also new to the catalog is the Wagner line of premium E-Shield Rotors, with 98 percent coverage of North American VIO.  These rotors are manufactured with an electrostatic coating that inhibits corrosion, provides an attractive look for open spoke wheels and easy removal for service.  E-Shield Rotors feature a turned smooth finish for proper and faster seating of the brake pads, and are also built to tight tolerances to ensure balance with unique, application-vane designs for better cooling capabilities.  

The new catalog also features the latest brand packaging on the cover, showcasing the newly branded product box designs for Wagner OEX, Wagner TQ®, Wagner QS™ and Wagner SD™.  Additionally, product offerings have been expanded across all Wagner product lines since the last catalog was published.
