Brembo has introduced a new aftermarket range of brake pads dedicated to heavy-duty vehicles.
The company has also completed its replacement discs offer with new Co-Cast and Splined solutions tailored to the needs of these vehicles.
The braking system for commercial vehicles is subjected to repetitive thermo-mechanical stress, which the brake disc must withstand effectively. This range of brake discs respond to this need with specific technologies and adaptations to match the characteristics of heavy-duty vehicles. These include the use of a special cast iron alloy for commercial vehicles, exclusive pillar venting technology and a cocasting process. This is said to lead to greater heat dissipation, resistance to thermal cracking and an increase in the life of both the brake discs and pads, even in extreme conditions.
Brembo has also worked on a full range of brake pads dedicated to commercial vehicles. Made from more than 30 different materials, brake pads have been developed and specifically designed for all types of heavy-duty vehicles – trucks, buses, trailers and semi-trailers – and their applications. All the brake pads guarantee the perfect braking efficiency, avoiding the fading effect and providing a reduction of braking distance during the running-in period. Covering more than 95% of commercial vehicles in Europe, the new wide range of replacement parts includes 100 unique part numbers of new brake discs as well as 67 brake pads. Both of the latest introductions come with all of the tailored-made applications for a fast, complete and safe braking system replacement.
