Tenneco Inc. says its Monroe Dynamics disc brake pads and shoes now cover air disc brake systems from Workhorse, Knorr Bremse, Meritor Wabco and other manufacturers. The Monroe Brakes product line covers a broad range of trucks, vans and utility fleet vehicles, including trucks equipped with pneumatic disc brake systems.

Tenneco says Monroe Dynamics pads and shoes offer the additional advantage of increased convenience and productivity by providing all of the parts needed, in a single box, in most cases; all hardware and related components needed for the job are included, enabling faster and easier brake jobs.

Tenneco says each Monroe Dynamics semi-metallic brake pad features an application-specific friction material developed and tested to meet the vehicle’s specific operating requirements. According to the company, these friction materials are secured to their backing plate with an OE constant-pressure manufacturing process called positive molding, which is designed to provide a better bond and denser friction material, resulting in less resin versus conventional flash-molded products; this, in turn, reduces pedal fade and helps ensure outstanding stopping performance.
