|Bendix has launched a new generation of disc brake pads for a new generation of heavier trucks, prime movers and trailers carrying bigger loads. |
Only a friction material specialist like Bendix can develop superior pads that are developed for harsh road conditions and operating demands.
As more new commercial vehicles switch to disc brakes, Bendix technology will bring fleet operators advanced levels of reliability, reduced noise and considerably longer life to pads and rotors.
Superior Surface protection
Bendix pads use less abrasive materials and lubricants that protect the disc rotor surface - unlike many aggressive European style materials.
Thanks to this advanced 'surface technology', friction can be achieved with minimal surface damage to pads and rotors thus extending both pad and rotor life.
Bendix CV Pads reduce thermal damage to rotors, which can cause micro and radial cracking and has a high tolerance of varying rotor metallurgy.
Low Rotor Wear
Fully Approved for European Use
Our Products are manufactured in state of the art facilities to the most stringent of quality control (TS 16949) and all are accredited through to ECE Reg 90 - E4 and E11.
Bendix disc pads feature a triple protection retention system - mechanical, adhesive and formulated retention to ensure product integrity in all operating conditions.
Mechanical Retention: An integral steel mesh, stud welded to the backing plate, through and around which the friction material is cured the mechanical shear strength is greatly enhanced.
Adhesive Retention: The backing plate (and steel mesh) is coated with thermo-setting phenolic adhesive. This delivers the industry standard bond for the friction material to the backing plate. This bond has a strong resistance to thermal stress.
Formulated Retention: The best compound for brake performance may not be the best compound for bonding. In order to ensure perfect bond conditions we insert an 'interlayer' of material specifically formulated for bonding between the backing plate and the main friction material block. During molding and curing this interlayer flows and fuses organically into the main friction block and adheres perfectly to the backing plate and steel mesh. The resulting final bond is fully secure.
