Marathon Brake’s HeatStar20 premium-grade brake lining is rated for 20,000- lb. axle loads and is designed for versatility, high performance and long service life, and is suited for a wide range of over-the-road hauling applications. HS20 meets federal regulations for brake effectiveness, fade and recovery in accordance with FMVSS 121 test procedures.

The lining’s high-density friction formulation helps improve its ability to handle heat efficiently and to hold more heat energy, allowing for more efficient heat dissipation. The company’s Hi-Density formula helps provide a stronger structural integrity, making the lining less likely to crack in service while improving resistance to brake fade and water fade.
