Save time, money and lives with the right brake linings.
Commercial vehicle operators who believe that near enough is good enough are wasting time, costing money and even putting lives at risk. It's important to be aware that there is a different spec for nearly every vehicle. That's why Bendix carries well over 1000 references for American, European and Japanese specs - and makes them available right around Malaysia.
The Bendix range covers virtually every application from a two tonnes delivery van right up to a road train and there probably isn't another manufacturer that comes close to this range.
References vary with the size of linings, the actual braking material as well as the differences between general truck and trailer sizes. Vehicles should be maintained as they were designed to be kept otherwise you won't know how efficiently your vehicle is braking. Fitting the wrong brake linings can result in poor performance, premature wear and over heating leading to brake fade.
In the absence of a universal code enforced by law, operators should at least look closely to see if a friction rating is engraved into the lining.
FF is the most common rating and covers 80% of commercial vehicles. EE rated linings tend to last longer with lesser performance and are typically suited to vehicles like road trains or timber jinkers. GG is more a specialist range offering high levels of performance immediately from cold starts. They are fitted to vehicles such as fire engines.
Bendix not only offer the widest range of references, we also have the experts on hand to provide fast accurate advice. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org. If we don't have the information straight away, we'll get right back to you.
Bendix is the only manufacturer with a testing laboratory in Australia. We have the largest friction material laboratory in the southern hemisphere with several dynamometers including a new noise and vibration unit utilising laser technology for measurement.
In addition, products are tested on real vehicles under normal operating conditions to make sure that are suited for Malaysia conditions of heat, dust and long distances.
