Hyundai Translead is offering the Bendix ADB22X-LT from Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake.

Engineered exclusively for trailers, the ADB22X-LT was unveiled in September 2016. It weighs in at 40 pounds lighter per tandem axle, making it the lightest air disc brake available in the market, and helping deliver increased payload capacity and value in trailer applications that are particularly sensitive to brake weight.

Like its predecessor, the Bendix ADB22X-LT offers a pad replacement time approximately one-quarter that of foundation drum brakes, once the wheel is removed, improving uptime and boosting productivity in the garage. Air disc brakes virtually eliminate brake fade. The brake pad’s design eliminates the possibility of rust jacking, and the system features an internal self-adjustment mechanism that can help lower the risk of brakes being found out of adjustment during inspection, which can affect Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) scoring.

The ADB22X-LT features a new brake pad, the Bendix BX276, which delivers 8 percent more wearable volume and up to a 40 percent improvement in wear rate compared to previous pads, combining to extend the service life beyond current air disc brake pad standards.

Engineered with a new adjustment mechanism that reduces the risk of brake drag, the ADB22X-LT offers improved overall pad life and extended service intervals.
