Bendix Brakes has relaunched its Fleet MetLok product line, a line of automotive disc brake pads and rotors designed specifically for use in severe-duty applications, as well as service and pursuit vehicles.
Bendix says the line has been enhanced to provide even better friction performance and coverage, and expanded to include rotors as well as pads. Semi- and low-metallic brake pads feature friction formulations proven to provide noise-free performance, fade and heat tolerance, and stopping in demanding applications. They also feature a 3-layer shim, burnishing compound to reduce break-in time, and a hardware kit when applicable.
The Fleet MetLok rotors are built with Alloyed Carbon Performance Castings, which provide thermal stability and strength, and ensure safe operation in all driving conditions. Additionally, they are coated with the company’s proprietary heat-resistant SurfaceLok coating, which extends rotor life by reducing corrosion, Bendix says.
