TMD says this year’s courses will cover:

  • A deep dive on friction materials, formulation, evaluation, testing and certification of brake linings and pads.

  • Training on drum and disc brake theory, function, air system components and fleet spec’ing to optimize the material for the application.
  • Reduced stopping distance.
  • Common myths about brake linings.
