Protrans is a multi purpose material that can be used in a range of applications including heavy duty trucks, light truck, trailer and common general purpose axles. The range includes references to cover most popular commercial vehicles and trailers.
Protrans is manufactured using upgraded processes featuring QS9000 quality controls and an ISO14001 environmental accreditation. With an FF rating (SAE J661a test procedure) and average friction level of 0.38, Protrans provides excellent wear and drum effect characteristics. It’s also very quiet in all operations and has a maximum continuous working temperature (MCWT) of 300˚C. The Protrans brake lining is unique as it puts a film on the drum, without doubt, the biggest difference Protrans has brought to operators.
The requirement to achieve a long service life and reduce downtime has never been greater. Larger trailer configurations, increased payloads combined with technological engine developments, with greater emphasis on safety, means that the braking system of commercial vehicles is subject to greater demands than ever before. Bendix understands that commercial vehicle operators must get maximum life and value from all vehicle components, particularly those often replaced items such as brakes.
Brake linings are one of the most important safety elements within the braking system of heavy commercial vehicles. With this in mind, Bendix developed Protrans to save owners and fleet operator’s time and money, with less vehicle down time in the workshop.
