AxleTech International introduces line of air disc brake pads

AxleTech International has announced the introduction of a complete line of air disc brake pads.

“AxleTech air disc brake pads are designed to provide exceptional performance and ultimately reduce total cost per mile for the vehicle owner. Our ADB pad kits will meet or exceed the performance of most OEM friction materials in many applications. Also, all of our friction formulations meet FMVSS121 requirements, as well as ECE R90 requirements,” says Mark Goedtel, product manager – brakes, at AxleTech International.

The AxleTech AT215 formula is developed for superior performance at higher axle ratings and more aggressive duty cycles commonly seen in the transit and vocational markets.

“We developed and evaluated our AT215 transit friction formula at 28,800 lb axle rating and 18.7 inch rolling radius. These parameters match the axle ratings and wheel radius of the most common transit buses with ADB,” Goedtel says.

Currently, the AT215 formula is approved or under evaluation at several transit authorities in North America, the company says.
