Working vehicles make special demands on brakes. Utes carrying loads under all sorts of driving conditions; the constant stop start of delivery vans and couriers about town. And towing, of course, puts extra demands on brakes. That’s why Bendix has developed a special compound that is able to deliver heavy duty performance under loads at high temperatures and last up to twice as long as all-purpose standard brake pads.
The economic consequences have also been taken into consideration when formulating a new compound. It must be long lasting without being unduly harsh on rotors. Fortunately Bendix, with the backing of the best technology from around the world and its unique testing laboratory was able to create a compound that met all these requirements to make it the ideal Aussie workmate. These pads have been extensively tested in the lab and on the road. They not only work better – they work longer.
A significant feature of Bendix Heavy Duty pads is the exclusive insulation layer (Insulayer) sandwiched between the backing plate and the friction material. The insulation layer assists the adhesion of friction material to the backing plate and minimises heat transfer which stops brake fluid from boiling, prevents damage to the caliper and ensures a positive pedal feel at high operating temperatures.
