GEORGE, Utah — Phoenix Systems announced the retirement of its BrakeStrip test-strip solution at the end of 2018. The new and improved BrakeStrip Plus will take the place of BrakeStrip beginning in January.
BrakeStrip Plus features a brake fluid test pad on one end and coolant test pads on the opposite end. The new strip will provide service centers with double the service opportunities and help deliver more reliable and safer vehicles, said Jeremiah Terry, manager at Phoenix Systems.
“We developed BrakeStrip Plus to give users the ability to determine the condition of both brake fluid and coolant in less than 90 seconds,” Terry said. “BrakeStrip Plus reveals brake fluid and coolant problems before they occur and helps keep a vehicle functioning at its best. Our goal is to offer BrakeStrip Plus without increasing the price.”
For the past 18 years, over 100 million brake fluid test strips have been used to diagnose worn out brake fluid and have produced over $3 billion in brake fluid service opportunities for service centers worldwide. The new BrakeStrip Plus will increase this tradition of service and is protected by multiple patents and patents pending, all according to the announcement.
