Haldex developed its Transitmax brake lining for added performance, quiet operation and extended service life in demanding transit and coach applications. The friction material, certified for both 26,000- and 29,000-pound GAWR applications, is made from an organic fiber-based formulation for added thermal stability and enhanced drum life and is designed for minimal growth and swell, making it suitable in combinations with automatic brake adjusters and ABS systems.

Transitmax is available in most FMSI numbers as loose lining, new lined shoes or remanufactured lined shoes; remans are relined according to recommended practices.
