VRI e.V. - Deutsche Version

The VRI-Recommendations listed below have been elaborated in special working groups by experts from the member companies.   


VRI-Verband der Reibbelagindustrie e.V.

The cooperation of the German friction material manufacturers already started in the year 1947 as an autonomous group (Reibbelagausschuss RBA). In the year 1982 the friction material manufacturers have founded their own association, the VRI-Verband der Reibbelagindustrie e.V. The RBA has initiated in 1971 the foundation of the European Association FEMFM, Federation of European Manufacturers of Friction Materials.   

The WVA-Numbering System

It is one of the functions of the "VRI-Verband der Reibbelagindustrie e.V." to take care of the application, the propagation and the development of the so called "Waren-Vertriebs-Artikel-Nummern-System (WVA-Numbering System)". The WVA numbers are a reference and assignment system for brake linings, clutch facings and other friction materials which will especially be used in road vehicles but also in mechanical engineering.
