Hydraulic Brake Parts

Expanding coverage of its Formula Blue hydraulic brake parts line, Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake (BSFB) recently added 100 new part numbers, and plans to introduce additional parts every quarter.

Formula Blue is BSFB’s comprehensive line of hydraulic brake parts for light- and medium-duty import and domestic vehicles ranging from Class 1 to Class 6. The expansion increases Formula Blue’s medium-duty lineup by adding import and bus applications. In addition, BSFB added a value line of hydraulic brake pads.

The new parts cover a range of name plates, including Blue Bird, Ford, Freightliner, Hino, IC Bus, Kenworth, Mitsubishi Fuso, Navistar, Peterbilt, Thomas Built Buses, UD, and Workhorse.

BSFB has also made it easier to access the Formula Blue product line by introducing a new resource. Customers can now go online to view the new 2016 Formula Blue Illustrated Parts Identification Guide, an extensive, user-friendly catalog that includes product photographs, dimensions, and application information for brake pads, shoes, drums, rotors, wheel cylinders, master cylinders, and calipers. The Illustrated Parts Guide was previously a printed supplement to the Formula Blue master catalog.

In the coming months, the entire master catalog will be migrated to the online Illustrated Parts Guide to provide a comprehensive and convenient shopping experience.

The Formula Blue line – more than 6000 parts strong – features a broad range of applications and provides a complete solution for fleet-oriented light- and medium-duty vehicles at an economical price. Products include new and remanufactured brake calipers, premium rotors, and full lines of pads, shoes, brake hardware, drums, master cylinders, and clutch hydraulics.
