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.

The Certified Choice

What is CAPA?

CAPA (Certified Automotive Parts Association) logo

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.

Operating since 2000, the 170,000 sq. feet Spectra Premium Laval plant became the World’s first CAPA-certified radiator production facility on June 28, 2017.
