Abex, one of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ leading commercial vehicle brands, has introduced a new series of premium brake rotors for the heavy-duty market.
Designed to work in conjunction with its air disc brake (ADB) pads, these new products are available across eight different Class 8 applications, covering nearly 98 percent of the heavy-duty ADB market.
Abex says it offers a pad and rotor combination for the most popular Bendix, Meritor and Wabco air disc brake systems.
Featuring E-Shield protective coating technology, Abex says it rotors are easier to remove, due to less corrosion and rusting on the attaching surface. Each rotor also contains a directionally smooth finish and offers quality design for maximum performance and reliability.
“More and more fleets have started utilizing ADB applications, and as such, we recognize their desire for a premium solution to all their wheel-end needs,” says Dennis Griffin, product manager, Abex, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “Abex rotors not only offer the quality that customers expect, but also address common complaints such as unsightly corrosion of the rotors and ease of installation.”
Abex premium brake rotors feature precision mill balance technology to prevent common performance issues such as pedal pulsation and brake noise caused by improper balance. Each rotor’s micro finish aids in proper seating of the friction material, reducing pad break-in time. Abex pad and rotor combinations are engineered to work together to provide optimum stopping and extended life, the company says.
