Our Tested Performance
All of our brakes are manufactured to OE specifications and are rigorously quality tested.
SAE J661 establishes a uniform laboratory procedure for securing and reporting the friction and wear characteristics of brake linings.
FMVSS 121 applies to trucks, buses and trailers equipped with air brake systems and establishes performance and equipment requirements. The Technology & Maintenance Council Recommended Practice #628B (T.M.C. RP 628B) provides information for judging the performance of aftermarket brake linings on air-actuated foundation brakes.
SAE J2975 testing and its report with the environmental letter coding per SAE J866 are valuable tools to: determine the level of compliance to state rules and regulations for heavy metals and asbestiform fiber content, compare different friction material formulations, and support the declaration of conformity requirements for vehicle manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, retailers, installers, and friction material suppliers.
ISO 6312 specifies a method for measuring the strength of the bond connection between the lining material and the carrier in disc brake pad and drum brake shoe assemblies (shear strength). ISO 6310 specifies a method for test and measurement of the compressive displacement of brake linings or brake pad assemblies due to loading and temperature.
