Raybestos launches truck and medium duty brake product line

truck-packagingRaybestos has introduced a truck and medium duty brake product developed for everyday heavy use situations and specifically designed for fleets using disc brakes from Class 1 hydraulics through Class 8 air disc.

The line features comprehensive and late model coverage; designs and formulations that conform to OE fit, form and function; low fade braking for optimum safety; heavy duty performance with low dust; quiet operation in extreme situations; and all weather stopping performance when equipped with heavy loads.

For medium duty and air disc applications, 100 percent of the brake pads are manufactured with specially formulated semi-metallic friction materials that are mechanically attached to the backing plate. This unique process improves shear strength on large puck assemblies, reducing pad end lift and noise while increasing safety and pad life.

Coverage includes Freightliner, Hino, International, Isuzu, Kenworth, Mack, Mercedes, Mitsubishi Fuso, Navistar, Peterbilt, Pierce, Sterling, Volvo and Workhorse.

For class 1 and class 2 trucks, Raybestos truck brake pads include mechanically attached friction, which provides increased safety through the reduction of rust jacking and bonding failure, and best-in-box formulations specific to each application that meet or exceed OE design performance.

The product line provides coverage for the majority of applications on the road today, including Cadillac, Chevy, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Jeep, Lincoln, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota and Volvo.
