Brake Material Coefficient of Friction Registration
Registration affords companies an easy, quick and cost-effective means to publicly demonstrate compliance to multiple industry standards and regulations.
VESC V-3 regulations require brake friction material to be marked with an identifying edge code. This edge code must contain a company assigned ID, formulation identification code, hot and cold friction coefficients and an environmental designation. NSF registers the hot and cold friction coefficients and can also act as a registrar for the environmental designation that meets all criteria set forth by the states of Washington and California.
Many state laws require brake material friction coefficients to comply with VESC V-3 regulations. Registration by NSF of brake material friction coefficients ensures brake material meets these requirements. NSF registration allows companies to publicly demonstrate compliance of products or services with standards, laws, regulations and requirements of potential customers.
Products and services that meet registration requirements appear in the online NSF registration listings and can be referenced in marketing and other promotional information. Registration by NSF, an independent third-party registrar, helps mitigate liability for companies and adds defensibility compliance to multiple industry standards and regulations.
