AxleTech expanding RSD brake shoe lines

RSD brake shoeAxleTech International is expanding its popular on-highway brake shoe kits product line with Reduced Stopping Distance (RSD)-certified brake linings.

AxleTech says the expansion is motivated by the latest stopping distance federal regulations, which mandate panic stop performance improvements for on-highway trucks. The AxleTech RSD brake linings allow heavy-duty vehicles to perform a panic stop braking distance of 250 ft. while traveling at 60 miles an hour.

“This addition to the product line provides fleets with a competitively priced OE-quality kit to maintain the RSD properties of their brakes,” said Robin Stow, vice president of Aftermarket Sales at AxleTech.

AxleTech provides on-highway brake shoe kits in Economy, Standard, Premium, and Severe Duty formulations, in both 20K and 23K Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). The company says the kits include brand new brake shoes and OE-quality hardware for ease of installation.

AxleTech has extensive engineering expertise in developing field-proven braking technologies for commercial off-highway and defense applications, and this same expertise is applied to its on-highway brake kits, the company says.
