ConMet introduces TruCast: a competitively priced aftermarket brake drum designed to ensure optimum braking performance.
“We relied on our proven TruTurn and CastLite brake drum technologies to create an affordable brake drum for heavy-duty truck and trailer applications,” says Mark Wagner, ConMet’s vice president of Wheel Ends.
ConMet says TruCast offers a weight-saving advantage as well. The 16.5 in. x 8.625 in. version is a full 9 lbs. lighter than a standard cast drum. Plus, there is a lightweight 16.5 in. x 7 in. drum that weighs only 106 lbs.
The company also says TruCast drums feature the following:
- 100 percent balanced for vibration-free operation
- Tested to meet the strictest FMVSS and OEM standards
- Manufactured to ConMet’s industry-leading material and quality standards
TruCast Brake Drums are now available exclusively through dealer networks and ConMet Premier Partners, the company says.
