Webb Transit’s W43 friction for the heavy-duty transit and coach markets was developed to provide both exceptional performance and value with high durability, low brake drum wear and quiet operation. The asbestos-free formulation – a blend of multiple cross-linked fibers coupled with a high-temperature-capability resin – is designed to restore OE performance when used with Webb Transit brake drums and OE or OE-equivalent replacement air and foundation brake system parts.

The FMVSS121-certified friction, a result of extensive dynamometer and transit bus testing, is available as axle sets, on new lined brake shoes and in Webb Transit’s Super Kits, complete axle kits consisting of two Webb brake drums, four new lined brake shoes and two hardware kits. Super Kits are designed to eliminate additional machining, increase safety and stopping power, reduce or eliminate brake noise, provide excellent durability, eliminate procurement of individual foundation brake parts and eliminate brake shoe processing.
