To help support the Motorist Assurance Program (MAP) Brake Service Awareness Week, Phoenix Systems recently gave away more than 650,000 BrakeStrip test strips to professional technicians.
BrakeStrip is a revolutionary new technology that allows technicians to quickly diagnose brake fluid condition. Utilizing Phoenix System’s patented FASCAR technology, BrakeStrip tests for copper in brake fluid.
According to a Uniform Standard developed by MAP, a copper content of 200 ppm or greater indicates a depletion of corrosion inhibitors in the brake fluid and would require brake fluid replacement. Currently, BrakeStrip is the only brake fluid test available that measures for copper and meets the MAP guidelines.
“The average vehicle owner is unaware of the importance of servicing brake fluid, which is the lifeblood of a vehicle braking system,” explained Jon Petty, managing partner and inventor of FASCAR technology. “The opportunity to participate in the MAP Brake Service Awareness Week with our test strip donation provided our company with the chance to educate consumers that maintaining good brake fluid condition helps ensure maximum stopping power and can prevent costly ABS and other brake system repairs.”
Phoenix Systems’ MAP giveaway combined with the company’s free test strip program for educators and students in the industry has a combined retail value of more than $1 million dollars. Service providers nationwide who have utilized the company’s simple seven step BrakeStrip System, have reported increases in brake fluid exchange service by as much as 400 percent.
