"CRC knows brakes," says Louis Fresta, CRC vice president of Sales and Marketing. "CRC invented the brake parts cleaner category in 1971 when the company developed CRC BRAKLEEN, the first aerosol brake parts cleaner on the market."

BRAKLEEN was a significant advancement for the automotive repair industry in the 70s, and CRC continues to innovate and lead in the brake maintenance category today. Fresta states, "Our new SILARAMIC Brake System Grease is a perfect example of CRC's commitment to innovation. Our team of technology experts has developed a superior product that outperforms ordinary caliper and brake system greases and is engineered to last the life of the brake pads and prevent uneven pad wear. This is a hard-core, high-performance grease."

CRC SILARAMIC is formulated with pure silicone and a blend of ceramic and proprietary lubricants, and contains the latest corrosion, extreme pressure and oxidation additives. It dramatically reduces brake noise, prevents disc brake squealing and chattering, and silences calipers. SILARAMIC has an extremely wide temperature range of -50 degrees F to over 3000 degrees F (-46 degrees C to +1649 degrees C) which makes it ideal for all types of brake materials, including ceramic brakes which operate at extremely high temperatures. It offers unsurpassed protection in both wet and dry conditions and will not melt or run off onto the friction pads or rotors.

Fresta recommends that SILARAMIC be used to protect all moving caliper hardware, mating surfaces and backing plates to provide lasting protection against friction, wear and corrosion.

CRC SILARAMIC Brake System Grease is available through automotive wholesale distributors and retailers.
