Discover the difference.
Testing shows that Bendix® reman brake shoes help you stop safer--five or more car lengths ahead of the competition. And with our exclusive PermaGuardTM coatings and high flexural strength friction, Bendix brake shoes extend service life by virtually eliminating rust jacking and cracked friction. Now you know better.
What your brake shoes are telling you.
Next time you reline, take a look at your brake shoes--you can learn a lot. If you see scoring on the drum or friction, a smooth, polished surface, uneven wear or cracks, you may have issues resulting from an uncoined shoe or under- or over- rated friction. Bendix shoes are built to prevent common brake shoe issues.
5 tips to selecting the right friction.
Know your axle vehicle brake specifications and application. Understand your complete costs (labor, downtime, drum, service interval, impact of CSA scores) not just the price of the shoes. Do you have an RSD vehicle? Lastly, consider the lifecycle of your vehicle--are you keeping it long-term or trading it in? Bendix has the right friction for your application and budget.
Maintaining an RSD (Reduced Stopping Distance) Vehicle
Relining an RSD equipped vehicle? Choose RSD-Certified friction or you may experience longer stopping distances, increased risk, and less safety. Take a look at the difference in performance. Bendix offers the industry’s first RSD-Certified aftermarket friction.
Don’t let cracked friction put you out of service.
- Edge cracks exceeding 1/16" in width or 1.5” in length.
- Cracks across the lining face that extend through the lining edges.
- Missing material that exposes a fastening device such as a rivet or bolt.
