Brake release

The brake release is a critical component because it must balance strength and appearance. It requires the smooth surface finish and consistent color of the auto interior while still demanding the strength and stiffness needed to engage the release mechanism.

Ascend's Vydyne R633H is ideal for this application because of its balance of strength and stiffness with a good surface appearance. The black color is approved for use in automotive interiors by many domestic automakers. The Ascend automotive team employed years of experience to create optimal parts for Ford,® General Motors® and Chrysler.®
