RustGard UV brake shoe coating from Carlisle Motion Control Industries and Altec Brake Systems is designed to solve the problem of rust-jacking and premature truck brake lining failure due to rusting brake shoes. Rust-jacking is caused by corrosive materials sprayed on highways to address slippery road conditions, typically magnesium chloride, calcium chloride and road salt.

RustGard also can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit for six hours without affecting performance, according to the company. For more information, go to www.carlislemotion.com.
