Brake Parts Inc. LLC has introduced Raybestos brand truck and medium duty brake pads for truck fleets using disc brakes from Class 1 hydraulics through Class 8 air disc.
The company says the specialty brake pads are a single source solution for fleets of all sizes. The new brake pads were developed for everyday heavy-use situations and specifically designed for fleets.
The Raybestos Truck & Medium Duty line features:
“For dependable, long-wearing brake pads that provide an excellent cost per mile, you don’t need to look any further than Raybestos Truck & Medium Duty friction,” says Bruce Tartaglione, senior vice president of global sales and marketing for Brake Parts Inc. “Formulated to provide superior friction stability over a wide range of vehicle loads and brake temperatures, you can rely on Raybestos to help keep your fleet on the road.”
For class 1 and class 2 trucks, Raybestos truck brake pads include mechanically attached friction whenever the application demands it, providing increased safety through the reduction of rust jacking and bonding failure. In addition, best-in-box formulations specific to each application meet or exceed OE design performance, according to the company.
The product line provides coverage for the majority of applications on the road today, including Cadillac, Chevy, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Jeep, Lincoln, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota and Volvo.
For medium duty and air disc applications, Raybestos specialty brake pads provide outstanding performance and stopping power, even in extreme load and temperature conditions. The company says one hundred percent of the brake pads are manufactured with specially formulated semi-metallic friction materials that are mechanically attached to the backing plate. This unique process improves shear strength on large puck assemblies, reducing pad end lift and noise while increasing safety and pad life.
Coverage includes Freightliner, Hino, International, Isuzu, Kenworth, Mack, Mercedes, Mitsubishi Fuso, Navistar, Peterbuilt, Pierce, Sterling, Volvo and Workhorse.
