Collision Repair Parts Program
Expand your business by entering the collision repair market
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in the U.S. alone, more than 7,000,000 road accidents occur every year (2016 data).
40% of these collisions involve the rear-end of a vehicle and the front-end of another, often damaging the latter’s cooling system.

First & Only CAPA-Certified Radiator Manufacturer
Spectra Premium leads the radiator aftermarket with the first & only CAPA Certification. The CAPA 601 Radiator Standard evaluates several aspects to ensure that the radiator will perform the same as the original equipment.
- Independent third-party certification
- Radiators now identified by CAPA as collision replacement part
- First CAPA-Certified Canadian Radiator production facility
- First & only CAPA Certified Radiators
- CAPA Certified parts strongly encouraged by insurance adjusters
CAPA Certification Advantages
CAPA certification provides a clear differentiator against competitors as first-to-market radiator certification, quality assurance, and branding.
The new CAPA 601 Radiator Standard ensures the quality of the product through rigorous testing of these characteristics:
- Material composition
- Construction and retaining features
- Fraud-proof and traceable CAPA seal affixed on product
- CAPA-branded packaging
- Top part stays on the radiator after installation
- Bottom part goes into the repair file to prove that a CAPA part was utilized for the repair
- Every seal has a unique number so every part is traceable
- Tampering with the seal voids all warranties
What is CAPA?
CAPA is an independent, non-profit American certification organization for automotive crash parts.
Protect the public – vehicle owners, collision shops, insurers and the marketplace – from inferior and over-priced replacement parts.
CAPA-Certified parts undergo a comprehensive testing program to ensure the end user receives the best quality part. Installing a radiator that holds the CAPA seal provides the installer/consumer the guarantee that the part passed a stringent testing process and was benchmarked against its OE counterpart.
Spectra Premium is the first radiator manufacturer to be awarded the CAPA 601 certification for radiators. All these radiators are produced at our Canadian factory in Laval.
