Counterfeit spare parts such as rims, air filters, oil filters, brake pads, brake discs, or spark plugs cannot always be distinguished from the original. But they harm manufacturers and suppliers as well as customers in several ways.
Counterfeits of safety-relevant parts such as brake pads can be risky in road traffic. The low braking power increases the risk of accidents. The fast wear requires premature replacement of the parts. If negative experiences of motorists and motorcyclists accumulate, the brand image of the manufacturer can suffer.
With TRUSTSEAL® Protect, we protect automobile manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers and the parts trade against plagiarism. Visible and invisible security features distinguish the brand product from the imitation. With our solution, questionable products can be authenticated in real time. OEM parts supply chains thus become transparent and gray market activities more visible.
