Abex, a commercial vehicles brand of Federal-Mogul Motorparts has launched a new range of premium brake rotors for the heavy-duty market. These brake rotors have been designed to work in conjunction with its Air Disc Brake (ADB) pads, and they are available across 8 different Class Eight applications. This will cover almost 98 percent of the HD ADB market. Abex offers pad and rotor combinations for air disc brake systems of the popular Bendix, Meritor and Wabco brands.
The Abex rotors come with E-Shield protective coating technology and are easier to remove, as they are less vulnerable to corrosion and rusting on the attaching surface. Each rotor has a directionally smooth finish and has been optimized to offer users the best design, maximum performance and reliability.
Unlike other products of the same type, Abex premium brake rotors have minimal chances of performance issues that are commonly seen like pedal pulsation and brake noise. Such issues are caused due to improper balance and Abex has used precision mill balance technology in these brake rotors to minimize such issues. The micro finish of each rotor plays a key role in proper seating of the friction material, thus reducing the time needed for pad break-in. Abex pad and rotor combinations are engineered to work together to provide optimum stopping and extended life.
Commenting on the new brake rotors Dennis Griffin, product manager, Abex, Federal-Mogul Motorparts said that more and more fleets have turned to ADB applications, and the new product will serve as a premium solution which will cater to all their wheel-end needs.
Griffin concluded, “Abex rotors not only offer the quality that customers expect, but also address common complaints such as unsightly corrosion of the rotors and ease of installation.”
